Meet the Kirks

I am excited to introduce the next Go. Seek. Love. family!

Stephen (dad), Amy (mom), Joshua, Emma, Sophie, Abby, Caleb, and Chloe Kirk

For the next six weeks, 100% of the proceeds of all Go. Seek. Love. T-shirt sales will go toward the Kirk family's adoption of a baby boy from Ethiopia!

Yes that's right, I said six weeks. We had initially planned to partner with families for three months at a time. However, when we got almost twenty applications from awesome, godly families, we were faced with a very difficult situation. We read blog after blog and fell in love with family after family. With all my heart I wanted to help every single one of them! With our current infrastructure, though, it's just not possible. Instead we prayerfully decided to partner with one family per month through the end of the year. The Kirks are the first, and from now until the end of June all T-shirt profits will go to them. Yea!

So head on over to and buy a T-shirt.

Also, Help us spread the word by adding a Go. Seek. Love. badge to your blog. Just copy and paste the following text:

Let me also share their bio with you that is now on our website:

Thanks for stopping by! We are the Kirk family (Stephen, Amy, and our 6 precious kids), waiting to bring our newest addition home from Ethiopia. As a family, we are striving each day to grow STRONGER in our devotion to God, CLOSER in our commitment to one another, and FURTHER in our passion for the world. By God’s unfathomable grace, we have been adopted in Christ—redeemed, rescued, and restored as His children, and now God is calling us to do the same for one precious little life a world away. What a privilege!

Several months ago, it became clear that God was asking us to “Go! Seek! Love,” a child through adoption. As we have responded in obedience, we have been encouraged by the example God himself set for us. He comes to us in our sin, seeks us out even as we push Him away, and loves us unconditionally and without merit. The path of obedience is not easy, but it is always good. May you experience the profound love of the very first adoptive Father in new ways today!

About the Kirk Family
Nearly 15 years ago, a boy married a girl, and since then, things have never been the same. Visit the Kirk house today and you can expect to be greeted by: 16 eyes, 160 fingers and toes, and 8 hearts beating in anticipation over the arrival of a 9th from Ethiopia. While the Kirk family loves the beach and the Colorado mountains, at any given moment you might find them hovering over their studies in the family dining room with homeschooling mom, Amy, at the teacher’s desk. They are also joyfully involved in their church, pastored by Stephen (dad). As you can imagine, life with 6 (soon to be 7) kids is never dull and always full of many blessings!
