MATCHING GRANT: Help us bring baby Courage home from the Dominican Republic

Lindsey Courage
Lindsey Courage Dallas, Texas

Our adoption journey started four years ago when we met a little boy named Pierre. We were leading a week long missions trip to Haiti  with Mission of Hope Haiti. Our dorms were next to the orphanage. We found ourselves gravitating towards the orphanage every afternoon and to a sweet little boy named Pierre. His infectious smile was irresistible and it seemed to spread across his whole face in a way that drew your attention away from his cerebral palsy. We knew at that time that God was opening up our hearts to adoption. Thankfully, God had already given Pierre an adoptive family, but we left knowing that our turn would come. Since that time in 2013, we have prayed for our future child, and now we are anticipating when our family will be blessed with their presence!

We have submitted our dossier (mountains of paperwork) and are waiting for our referral from  the Dominican Republic. Would you please consider giving a special gift to help us with the financial costs of this international adoption? We have done yard sales, bought and resold items, and worked to raise money towards the $35,000 + plus adoption costs but we need help to reach our goal. We have a matching grant from First Baptist Church of Mckinney so every dollar you give will be matched up to $3,000. Being a parent is a lifelong commitment and joy, we hope you will jump in and help us expand our family and change a child’s life forever. That is an investment worth making! Thank you for joining us on this journey.
