We’d like to start by saying that God is good! We’ve wanted to become parents for over 8 years, and by God’s grace, we will be this week! We have been matched with the most wonderful birth mother who is due any day now! And it’s a boy! We started the adoption journey earlier this year, and learned of her about 2 weeks ago. She expressed interest in us last Monday, we “met” her on FaceTime Tuesday, were matched Thursday, and his due date was August 15th!
We are beyond excited for what’s to come, but we need your help. It’s a quick adoption situation, but we know that God will provide and that the funds we need will come. God’s timing is perfect, and we learned last Thursday that Lifesong for Orphans has awarded us with a $4,000 matching grant from Grand Meadow Community Child Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. So amazing!!
We just want to say thank you to all of you who’ve been praying for us for such a long time, we would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for you! We love you all and are so grateful to have such supportive friends and family! We will certainly keep you all updated!
