Davis Haiti Adoption

JESSICA DAVIS Columbus, Ohio

Our family has had a heart for caring for vulnerable and at risk children long before we began pursuing adoption. We both have experienced the grace and love of Jesus and being adopted into God’s family, and we see adoption as a beautiful picture of the Gospel. We see the call in Scripture to care for orphans and vulnerable children, and we feel one way our family has been called to do this is through adoption. God has been growing our hearts for adoption and at risk children for a long time. 

 

Adoption isn't just another thing our family wants to do, it is in an extension of hearts to care for the vulnerable children in our neighborhood and around the world. We have chosen to adopt from Haiti because there are more than 30,000 orphans in a country of 10 million. We know that adoption is not the answer for this country, and we rally behind causes like maternal healthcare, child sponsorship, and nutrition programs that seek orphan prevention. However, the reality is that there are children who need homes and families, and we long to provide a safe home for a child that needs one. We have invited many in our community and church to join us in praying for our little one in Haiti and hope to encourage others to step out in faith in choosing adoption. However, the reality is that adoption is very expensive, approximately $45,000, and we are trusting God to provide in amazing ways as well as committing to be good stewards of what he has given us.

Adopt an Envelope Fundraiser

August 15, 2019

We are so incredibly excited to be in the adoption process to bring our little one home from Haiti. We have been dreaming of this since we first got married.
As part of our process we are having an Adopt an Envelope fundraiser to help raise money to cover some of the adoption expenses.
We expect our adoption cost to be close to $50,000. We have paid about $20,000. We have been applying for grants, doing some fundraising, working side jobs, and saving our pennies while still living life over the past year. We also just had an ice cream party to kick off this fundraiser. Thanks to all who came, we would love for you to share this event!

How it works?
1. There are 200 envelopes numbered 1-200. Pick a number (or as many as you’d like!).

2. Donate the amount on the envelope. So for example: if you picked envelope #27 you would be committing to giving $27. You can also choose as many envelopes as you’d like. For example: Let’s say you pick envelopes #1, #6 and #10 then you would be giving $17. The highest number is 200.

3. We will write your name on the envelope and keep it for our little one to have. You can also mail/email/drop off a note for our future son/daughter to put in your envelope.

4. Venmo, send a check, or give your amount on our LifeSong fundraising site which is tax deductible.

If we fill all these envelopes we will have raised $20,100 to bring our little one home!!

Prizes! We wanted to make this fundraiser a little more fun and have put 5 Jeni’s gift cards in 5 envelopes. If you choose one of those numbers you get the prize!

How can you be a part of this?
1. You can email me at davisjn86@gmail dot com (no spaces and use a . for dot) and let me know which envelope you would like and you can include a little note for our future little one to go in your envelope if you want.
2. You can Facebook me which envelope you want.
3. Shoot me a text!
4. SHARE this event with your friends please!

Then…
– You can send a check OR
– You can use Venmo (Jessica-Davis-595) OR
– Lifesong for Orphans (Davis Haiti Adoption)
