Bechler Adoption Story

Graham Bechler Nashville, Tennessee

Hello friends and family,

 

As you may know, we have felt a call to adopt our first child! We are hoping to adopt an infant here in the States. As soon as we are matched, we will travel to wherever the birth mom will deliver and bring baby home. We have already been praying for God to protect and direct everyone involved in this process. Adoption has always been on our hearts, and we are confident that this is the time for us to respond to that call. 

 

 

The biggest challenge we are currently facing is financial. The estimated cost for a domestic adoption is $45-60k… that’s a cost we simply cannot afford, but we trust that God has a plan and will provide a way. It’s been a difficult journey, but we believe that it is biblical to be humble and ask for help when we need it. Your friendship is appreciated and we would like to ask you to pray and consider helping us in one or two ways.

 

 

1. Please pray that God would care for and bless the birth mom and baby; that God would prepare Cori and I for the upcoming changes to our family; and that God would grant us wisdom, insight, and discernment as we raise our child.

 

2. Will you please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us cover the remaining amount needed for our adoption expenses to bring this child home? Our goal date is Feb 28, 2022, but funds will be accepted towards our adoption until the child is home and/or our adoption is complete.

 

 

Lifesong has been blessed with a partner that underwrites all U.S. administrative and fund-raising costs (We Care for Orphans). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption!

Thank you for investing in the Kingdom through prayer and finances—it will be an investment with an eternal return! We’ll update you with any details as we receive them.

 

In Christ,

Graham and Cori Bechler

Goal Achieved!!

February 26, 2022

We can not believe the generosity all of you have shown us… it’s so difficult to find words powerful enough to convey the gratitude both Cori and I feel, so I will just say that you all have changed our lives in an incredible way. We’ll try to keep this page live until we are matched so that we can update you here on how things are going. Thank you again, we are so excited to see what God has in store for us!
