Hyde’s Adoption!

Ryan Hyde
Ryan Hyde Belle Center, Ohio

Hello Family & Friends, 
 

We are thrilled to announce that Lifesong for Orphans has awarded us a $3,500 matching grant to help fund our adoption! Donations towards this matching grant are tax deductible (donations under $50 just require a message sent to Lifesong so a receipt can be sent). This matching grant would cover almost half of our remaining adoption expenses. We are very thankful for Lifesong and appreciative of this matching grant! 

To tell you more about our family…

We are the Hyde’s and we’re excited to tell everyone that we are once again a waiting family with  Bethany Christian Services as we pursue our second adoption! Adoption is a beautiful process and an awesome reminder that we ourselves have been adopted in God’s family. We are excited to see where God leads us throughout this 2nd process and are hoping to simply be obedient and continue to walk through doors God has opened. Cari and I were both blown away with the community support we received during and after our prior adoption and we first of all want to say thank you to everyone! The prayers, encouragement, and financial support was incredible and an awesome reminder of God’s love.


To give a brief background on our family, Cari and I both work in education. We are currently at Calvary Christian where Cari teaches preschool and I serve as the administrator. We started our first adoption process in 2015 that concluded in October of 2017 when our daughter Ki joined our family. It’s been an incredible roller coaster year of change but we can hardly remember what our lives were like before her.  

The adoption process has been much smoother the second time around. At this point, we have completed all requirements to re-enter the program and are currently a waiting family. This means we could receive a call at any time with a potential match. We hope this platform will serve as a tool to keep our family and friends connected with our process, provide updates for our prayer partners, and offer a platform to give financially if led to do so.

We are currently looking for ways to raise $20,000. This number would cover the remainder of our legal fees, family fees, agency fees,and potential health fees. Adoption is not cheap but we are trusting God will provide a way to make it possible! We are currently planning a meal fundraiser this fall as well as applying to various grant agencies. We are very appreciative of you all and continue to covet your prayers as we walk through this process again!

Hyde Adoption Update

April 9, 2020

Friends and family,

 

 We are updating you tonight with one main request – your prayers. We know there is a lot going on in the world right now and many lives are affected by the coronavirus. We pray that you are healthy and safe with your families.

 

We are coming to ask you to pray hard with us about a few things. Number one is that in the last couple weeks, we had been contacted that the CEO of Bethany Christian services (the agency we use for our adoptions) is closing the Ohio branch. There are a few things with this; in order for us to remain active with a home study we must find another agency quickly.  It takes about 4-6 weeks to transfer all documents/necessary things to the new agency. The transition needs to be complete before BCS Ohio is actually closed. We have been praying and researching and feel directed in an area already. So, we are thankful for that. But, still keep praying God directs us where we should be.

 

Along those lines, we have been informed that we will be receiving only half of what we have already paid to the program with BCS. This has been hard news, but again know that it isn’t a surprise to God. We know that He is moving us to another agency. We know that we are where He wants us to be and that He provided all funding for Kiara and will do so again this time around. In our minds, there couldn’t be a worse time for this with all the unemployment and hardships going around; but, we are thankful that we serve a God who is all knowing and in control of all things. We don’t ever want to think for one second that we were in control of anything. Our desire is for God to always receive all glory.

 

Please add us to your prayer list – that we’d be encouraged, His protection on our family, the little one(s), the birthparents, and that we would be able to raise the rest of the necessary funds ($8,000) needed.

 

 

Thank you for your continued prayers & support. We love you all! <3
