Bringing Tobi Home

Stephanie Wood Birmingham, Alabama

We have always known adoption would be part of our family’s story we just didn’t know when that would be. Following a recent miscarriage and discovery of some health issues for Stephanie, we began praying through what God had for us to expand our family.

Stephanie received a call from a dear friend that connected us to a specific and rare situation.  After many prayers and conversations, we have been led to adopt a baby boy that is due June 30th. We can not even begin to explain all of the doors that have flung open for this to happen. We were not exactly preparing at the time this opportunity presented itself. The paperwork, home study, appointments, and money is all overwhelming! We do believe God will provide above and beyond what we think possible. We need to raise $50,000 in a short amount of time.

We feel incredibly blessed by a community of family and friends that are cheering for us and here to support us physically, emotionally, and financially. We hope and pray that you will be part of our village that brings our boy home. #tobistribe

So blessed to be able to contribute to this amazing story, and to this little boy having an incredible life as part of your family. He paints pictures we could never dream and they are so much more beautiful and meaningful than when we try to paint our own story. Love, The Sanchez Family”
