Friends and family, we have BIG news!
We are adopting a little boy from China! We are planning to travel to China to pick Joshua up this fall.
We are very excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome him into our home. As part of our adoption process, we are blessed to be able to work with Lifesong for Orphans to raise the necessary funds to get Joshua home. It may surprise you to hear that our adoption related costs will total up to over $31,000. So far we have raised/paid about half of that! We are trusting God to provide the rest through the generosity of our friends and family!
We have been awarded a $3000 matching grant from We Care for Orphans Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. So, any gifts received through this donation page up to that amount will be doubled!!!!
We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around Joshua. We truly cannot do this without the support and prayers of you all! We believe God commands us to care for the widows and the orphans, and perhaps this can be a way for you to join in that cause!
Thanks for your consideration!
