Thank you for joining us on our adoption journey!
Adoption has been something that’s been on our hearts for a long time. Even before we were married, we had talked about this desire to adopt. We are now excited to have been in this adoption process since January through Bethany Christian Services. We are pursuing a domestic infant adoption and are currently in the “waiting” phase, meaning we can get a call at any moment! This could be weeks, or it could also be years. There’s no way to predict when we will be picked by a birth parent.
We have been incredibly blessed by our friends and family who have been supporting us along the way! This waiting process can be difficult, but exciting. We are thankful that God is good and His timing is perfect!
Our request from you is that you please join us in praying for the baby God has for us, for the birth moms (and dads) facing such huge decisions, and for us as we go through this process and transition into parenthood!
We are so grateful to have been given much financial support from family and friends. This support combined with what we have saved leaves us needing just $6,500 more to cover the remaining adoption fees. We are also thankful to have been awarded a $3,000 matching grant through Lifesong for Orphans, meaning that everything raised through this platform will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $3,000!
If you have any questions for us about our adoption, please don’t hesitate to ask! We’re happy to talk about it.
