We are adopting again! We’ve been talking about and praying with Naomi since the summer of 2020 for a baby brother or baby sister. It has been an exciting time as we’ve been preparing our home and hearts for another child. While we are excited for our family to grow, we are also sorrowful and prayerful for our next child’s birth family. Our joy will without a doubt be their sadness. We would love it if you would join us in praying for our growing family and the duality of joy and sorrow that adoption brings.
God has made it clear to us again that His plan, which is higher and greater than ours, is to grow our family again through adoption. The funding of another adoption seems daunting but we are trusting that He will provide all that we need.
We have been generously granted a $3500 matching grant from Beck’s Hybrids, Scott and Shantel Beck are local to Indiana and have a heart for adoption. We are so grateful for their partnership in our adoption journey and in our shared passion for adoption.
We also have a received a matching grant from our church, Pennington Park Church. Then, unexpectedly, two of our dear friends surprised us with an additional matching donation to take us to a total of $10,000 in matching grant money! This means that if we receive $10,000 in donations, we will receive another $10,000 from these 3 groups/people who also support adoption! God has cheered our hearts as we have received news of these various ways God is lifting the financial burden from us.
Thank you for praying with our family and if you feel led to support our adoption financially, thank you also!
