Adoption entered our story long before Logan and I met. I was introduced to the idea in middle school and decided that no matter what one day I would adopt. Well, fast forward to Logan and I dating and he learns my heart for adoption and his heart for it begins to grow as well. Now, fast forward to year 3 of marriage we begin trying to grow our family and things just aren’t working out. We head to the doctor and find out yep, I am “clinically infertile” which just basically means we have tried for over a year and haven’t gotten pregnant. But no problem, God knew this would be part of our journey and I firmly believe that is why adoption entered our story so long ago! So here we are Baby Boy Pope due December 2023.
We have already been overwhelmed with the amount of support we have received and we would be honored if you too would join in partnering with us on this journey- first and foremost through prayer & encouragement! Specifically, in praying for the health and wellbeing of our sweet birth mama and growing baby boy.
Another way to partner is through giving to our adoption fund! We have learned our adoption will cost close to $60,000. We have been blessed to be able to take care of about half the cost on our own with Gods thoughtful provision. And as part of our adoption process we applied for a matching grant and we were generously blessed to have been awarded $8000 from Josiah’s Adoption Fund & Lifesong for Orphans but, in order to receive the full benefit we must raise at least $8,000 with the help of wonderful people like you taking the time to hear our story and sharing in our heart for adoption!
We thank you for taking the time to read our story! May God bless you just as he has blessed us!
PS. The cover photo was taken right after I told Logan we had been matched!
