In 2014, Andrea and I traveled to China for the first time to bring home Malachi, a (then) fourteen month old boy to become part of our family. It was an incredible experience and we continue to see God’s grace working in his life: from the healing he experienced to the love that he shares so freely.
Now, in 2017, we are just a few steps away from adopting another little boy from China who needs a forever home. We have experienced God’s grace through Malachi and believe that God’s grace is at work to give a home, a family, and love to another boy. Grace upon grace.
We are asking (prayerfully) for your help. Our paperwork has been sent to China and we have our LID (Log-In Date) which means we are close to being available to be matched with a child. This means we need to raise the remaining fees necessary so we can adopt as soon as possible. Through Lifesong for Orphans, we have received a $6,000 matching grant. It we can raise $6,000 from friends and family (and strangers) then we’ll receive an additional $6,000 from Lifesong! This is an incredible opportunity.
Would you join us in praying for our son who is waiting for us in China? Would you prayerfully consider supporting our goal to raise $6,000 to make this dream a reality?
