After years of dreaming about it, we’ve decided to make the leap into international adoption. We are in the process of adopting a little girl from China! If all goes well, then we may be able to go get our Gracie and bring her home around the beginning of the year! But we really need your help.
We feel like this is one way that we can fulfill the challenge of pure religion in James 1:27. We want to be able to give a precious child a loving, Christian home that will give her so many opportunities, both in this life and the next, that she may not otherwise have had.
This is an expensive process. We have the love and the desire to make it happen, but we need help with the funding. The average cost of these adoptions is $30,000. Our hope is that enough people like you, have a heart for adoption. Maybe adoption isn’t the right choice for your family right now, but would you be willing to help us? Being a part of adoption is a special chance to make an eternal difference in the life of one child.
Even small donations can add up to a lot, so anything you can give would be appreciated.
Above all, please keep our family and its new addition in your prayers. May God provide us the resources and guidance we need. May God provide for and protect our new baby until we can bring her home.
