Davis’ Adopt Again

Gabriel Davis
Gabriel Davis Charlotte, North Carolina

Our adoption story starts years ago, as Dionne has wanted to adopt since we were married. She has always had a soft spot in her heart for children who are in need of a home, and her being a nanny for several years has only deepened that desire. I (Gabe) was a little slower to get on board with the idea, only because I was deeply afraid of the cost of adopting. However, through prayer God alleviated my fear and I became fully on board, and we knew that God would provide for this opportunity that He placed on our hearts.

And voila! We were able to get our daughter Jan 1st, 2020, and we have been so blessed by her presence in our family. She has taught us joy and patience, laughter and sharing, taught us how to be present in the small things, and how to love unconditionally. We have been so blessed by her presence that we are inspired to adopt again. We know that the need for adoptive families will always be present in the USA, and we are thankful that the ability to care for children who need a safe and loving home is one that we have.

After much prayer and discussion, Dionne and I are excited to be seeking a second child through adoption! Part of our process this time will be a commitment to and need for fundraising. To help us reach that goal of another child, we have partnered with LifeSong + Josiah’s Adoption Fund for a fundraising grant! They have agreed to match any and all donations made towards our adoption up to 7,000 dollars, which means we could raise 14,000 dollars towards our new adoption!! What a blessing.

 

In the best of circumstances, asking those people who you know and love for financial support is humbling and embarrassing. However, sometimes you do have to ask. We are excited to receive your prayers, your thoughts, and your blessings. We know that God has placed this burden for children on our hearts, and will trust in Him to make all things possible.
