We are adopting a child!
We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a beautiful new life into our home. As part of our adoption process, we have started a crowdfunding campaign. It may surprise you to hear that adoption related costs can be very high. These costs include things like the birth mother’s medical expenses and living expenses and many legal expenses. We've already raised almost 75% of the funds needed. At that point we'll be officially waiting to be mathced. We have been awarded a $2500 matching grant from Tapestry/Irving Bible Church Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. This is a huge blessing as it will get us to our 75% mark. We know not everyone can give financially, and we would covet your prayers as we begin to grow our family.
We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up.
