Dear friends and family,
Josh and I are adopting a baby!
We have been pooling all our time, money, and resources into our infertility battles for the last seven years with the answer that we will not be able to have biological children without medical intervention. Of course, God can change that and grant us biological children if He chooses, but for now He has has moved us on to adoption!
Josh and I have always had a heart for adoption even before we met and married. We just assumed our family would grow by birth first and adoption second. We are SO excited for the chapter of becoming parents to finally begin! This leap of faith is not without its scary side though; adoption can cost upwards of 40,000! A sad fact, but there it is. Josh and I certainly do not have 40,000 sitting in our bank, but God is good and we trust that He will provide. However, that is a HUGE number. We are being careful with our expenses, and Josh is working as much overtime as he can to raise the money. Birth mothers are officially reviewing our profile right now, so we can be matched any day now. When we are matched, then we will have to come up with $20,000 within three business days, and the rest of the money by the time the baby is born.
We are specifically asking for a few things. First and foremost, we are asking for your prayers. Prayer is so powerful and we know that God hears all of the prayers. Not only prayer for us, but prayer for the birth mother and father, the baby and the rest of the pregnancy for the birth mother.
Second, we are asking you for your financial support if you have the resources to bless us. We know that not everyone has extra money they can give us for the adoption and that is okay! Your prayers are most important to us.
We are also raising money with Lifesong for Orphans we have a matching grant up to $2000.00 so for every dollar that is donated up to $2000.00 will be doubled. There are a couple of ways you can donate to our adoption.
If you prefer to give via check, you can make donations payable to Lifesong for Orphans. In the memo, note gift preference with "Kaiser 7597"
PLEASE HAVE CHECKS MAILED TO:

If you want to send us money through PayPal, Zelle or a check then please contact us at 210-848- 6927 or email address firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you send us a donation.
Lastly, we are asking you to share our story with anyone you may know so they can also pray for us and have the opportunity to support us financially. We know that GOD is big and He has placed the desire in our hearts to adopt and He will provide financially for us. We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up. We hope you have a great day and we thank you so much for your prayers and support.
