About The Skoog Family
Otto & Krista
We are the Skoog Family! Otto is 55-years-old and has served as a pastor for over 20 years. Krista is 55-years-old and has been a nurse for the past 16 years. We have been married for 31 years and have two wonderful adult children, as well as two amazing grandchildren. Gabe is 27-years-old and his wife Katie have two beautiful children. He is an electrical engineer and Katie is a home full time raising the kids. Kyra is 24 and she and her husband Jackson hope to start a family soon. They are both teachers.
Our family is very close and we love that we attend church together and get to see each other often. Since 2018, we have been trying to adopt from China. As we saw that door become closed, God brought a new and unexpected opportunity in our lives! We are excited about the possibility of adding a 14-year-old son from the Philippines to our family! From his video and bio, he is a perfect fit into our family. We are both grateful and humbled to be considered for a grant and appreciate your support.

What is a Brittany's Hope Adoption Grant?
Brittany’s Hope believes in the fundamental right of all children to have the security and love of a family. There are an estimated 153 million orphans living around the world (UNICEF – 02/2011). These staggering statistics are heartbreaking considering a large number of these children are special needs, who have little or no value in the eyes of their own country. They are left to languish in institutions, where they receive minimal care and live hopeless, helpless lives.
The cost of international adoption can be overwhelming and is only further compounded by the medical and accessibility costs a child with special needs presents. Our Adoption Grant Program provides grant monies while giving families the opportunity to assist Brittany’s Hope in raising funds so the next child may also be united with their forever family. The phrase “It takes a village to raise a child,” takes on new meaning as the “seeds” of the adoptive family’s friends, family and neighbors take root and help provide future families with adoption grants. With a gift to Brittany’s Hope, a donor’s monetary support of the Adoption Grant Program means double for the adoptive family.
