We are the Gansherts - Ryan and Katie Ganshert, to be precise. We're a middle-class family living in the exciting state of Iowa. We've been married for eight years. We have one biological son who will be four in October and a black lab named Bubba. We love Jesus with all our hearts and we want to love like He loves - recklessly and with abandon. Jesus was all about the least of these. He was all about defending the defenseless and caring for the orphan. We want to be that way too. Adoption used to scare us, mainly because it's risky and expensive. If we're being honest, it still scares us. But we're quickly learning that where God leads, He also provides.
We cannot wait to welcome our newest addition to our family!
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after widows and orphans in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. ~James 1:27
