The Fulkerson household is buzzing with excitement! We are anticipating “the call.” This is not just any call. We are awaiting the call from our adoption agency that we have been matched with a birth family and a new addition is arriving soon. We are grateful that God has brought us to this place and trust His provision to bring us through as we await our little one’s arrival. We were blessed by the gift of adoption in 2012 with our son Eli. We long to see him in action as a big brother. We do not feel our family is complete just the 3 of us.
The cost of adoption can seem daunting and overwhelming at times. God has been gracious to us and we sense His presence in our journey. We know we were overwhelmed with our first adoption the outpouring of love and support shown to us by family and friends. Can we be truthful for a moment – there have been days we felt we should turn back with our second adoption as we felt the cost was too great for us. As we took a step back and remembered God’s faithfulness with Eli’s adoption – we were given a peace that “transcends all understanding.” We are overwhelmed and grateful to have been given a $2,500 matching grant through Lifesong partnering with Orphan Care Alliance to meet the need with our remaining adoption fees. That means that any financial gift will be matched up to $2,500 essentially allowing us $5,000 towards remaining fees. Would you be willing to partner with us? Would you pray for our future child? We know God is with him/her. Would you pray for our child’s birth family? Would you pray for us?
If you would be interested in supporting our adoption through a tax-deductible donation, thank you!
We cannot wait to share with you the exciting conclusion to our adoption journey!
Josh, Haley and Eli
