“a11 in” The Davis Family Adoption Round 2

Rachel Davis
Rachel Davis Lakin, Kansas

 ***We have a matching grant**"

That means all donations up to $5,000 will be matched by our friends at Aim 5.  So a $5 donation is really worth $10.  A $50 now worth $100!!!  Guys this is huge!!

Kurt and I have been married 14 years.  We knew early on God wanted us to add to our family through adoption.  After having three biological children we adopted a sibling group of four only two years ago.  They are absolutely amazing!  Our kids range in age from 7-14.  In May of this year I went to Colombia on an advocating trip with our adoption agency.  While there I met two teenage boys.  After spending the day with them it was obvious God was calling me to adopt again.  After some hesitation I called Kurt.  We spent a few weeks praying about it and talking with our kids.  The nine of us all decided God was calling us to adopt again.  The boys we are adopting are 14 and 16.  That means we only have a little time before the oldest boy ages out.  We know God is calling us to be obedient so we are trusting that He will bring people alongside us during this journey.  We have decided to call our adoption journey a11 in because we’ve completely surrendered our plan to God’s will.  The 11 in the a11 represents the eleven members that will make up our family.  Thanks for joining us in this incredible time of our lives.

Grant doubled!!!

October 14, 2019

I am blown away!!  I received an email this afternoon that Aim5 Foundation has doubled our matching grant from $5,000 to $10,000!!!  That means if we reach $10,000 in donations it will actually be $20,000!  That will cover ALL of our remaining fees before travel AND our in-country doctor fees, passport fees and court fees for the boys! 

You guys are amazing and we are already over $8,600!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!  Every donation is so important and so valuable.  A $5 donation means just as much as a $500.  I’m honored by each one of you that has given, shared, and prayed. We love you all!!
