Dumas Adoption Journey

Eric and Lori Dumas
Eric and Lori Dumas West Saint Paul, Minnesota

BIG NEWS! We've received a match! Baby Boy is expected on July 6th, and we are thrilled to be on this journey with him and his birth mother. Please keep everyone in your prayers!

----

Join us on our adoption journey as we raise the funds needed for this incredible process! We have graciously been awarded a matching grant of $7,000 from We Care for Orphans + Lifesong for Orphans Adoption Fund! This means any gift you’re able to give toward our goal, up to $7,000, will be matched by these organizations. We are truly blessed by their generosity in partnership with your financial support.

A little about us… we have been married for over fifteen years and are thrilled to be on this exciting journey of adoption! We firmly believe the Lord is calling us to realize more fully the gifts he has given us and extend ourselves in love and service to the orphan or unwanted. We have room in our hearts and home for more love, and we have discerned a call to adoption for many years. While we have remained actively open to life throughout our entire marriage, we have struggled through years of infertility. We have grown stronger as husband and wife in bearing this cross through the Lord’s grace and with the support of our community. We have also been intentional about adoption not being a “plan b” option for us. We know that this process is not simply filling a hole in our lives but comes from a true call and deep conviction. We are humbled to raise a child and overjoyed to extend ourselves in unconditional love.

Please consider joining us on this incredible journey!


STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction)*. Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”. In the memo line please write “Dumas 09914”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, Gridley, IL 61744.

Lifesong has been blessed with partners who underwrite all U.S. administrative and fundraising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.

  • In following IRS guidelines, your donation is to Lifesong for Orphans. This organization retains full discretion over its use, but intends to honor the donor’s suggested use.
  • Lifesong is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Individual donations of $50 or more and yearly donations totaling $250 or more will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Receipts for donations under $50 will gladly be sent upon request.
  • *3.5% fee for donations given with an American Express card
