2020 Sponsor Family

Meet Derek and Hollie Willard, our 5th year Sponsor Family. We are so grateful you are sharing your journey with us. Please read a small portion of their journey below.

We prayed long and hard on how we should expand our family. We both have struggled with infertility issues and tried several medications and it came to a head when both of our fertility doctors said it was time to consider IVF. God put it on our hearts that adopting was the way to go. We want to help a child who is already on this Earth have a beautiful and full life, and that’s why it was such an easy choice for us to start this journey.

At this time, we have completed our home study, and have sent in our I-800A application (Determination of Suitability to Adopt a Child from a Convention Country, to initiate the immigration process if you intend to adopt a child who habitually resides in a Convention country), and will be pursuing an adoption of a child from Burkina Faso, Africa. After our application is approved, we’ll begin working on our dossier to be sent to Africa.

We have been married 11 years and live on the west side of Indianapolis with our two dogs, Maverick and Larry. We enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to sporting events and concerts, and just hanging out together.

Derek and I hope you’ll join us in participating in this year’s event to help us get a little closer to our dream of adoption!"

Broken Together Ministries

Found in 2016, Broken Together Ministry was created to support families looking to adopt that may not have the financial resources available to them to do so.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, all proceeds from our Adoption Awareness Run/Walk event held annually in August goes to support families in Indianapolis area on the journey to adopt.

We assist families who:
- have previously adopted
- in the process of adoption
- new to the adoption process
- are fostering children and want to adopt
- are part of the Safe Families network.

Our goal is to increase community bond, unity and trust through connection and sharing each other’s story.
