Hello! We are the Nations Family. At least, the current members of the Nations family. We are in the process of growing out family through domestic, infant adoption! We are so excited, and cannot wait to see who he, she, or they turn out to be!
For those of you who do not know, adoption is very expensive. We have been told to have at least $40,000 ready to go, and that is on the lower end. Our little family does not have that typeof cash lying around. We have spent the last few months budgeting, saving, and being blow away by the generosity of the family, friends, and strangers who have chosen to be a part of our family’s story through donating!
We have officially become active with our adoption consultant agency, meaning that we will start to get moms’ profiles, and they will get ours, and a match will hopefully happen soon! It’s all very exciting and overwhelming.
Due to that, we are really trying hard to be fully funded as soon as possible. We have about half of what we need so far. Which makes the following news very exciting:
We have been approved for a matching grant of $7,500! That means that for every dollar given, the same amount will be matched, so we are given double! All of the donations are tax deductible, and through Lifesong, we receive every penny given. Goodness people are generous!
We ask that you prayerfully consider being a part of this story with us. From the bottom of our hearts, we are grateful, thankful, and overwhelmed by the love and support!
LET’S GET A BABY!
