First, we would like to say thank you, with all our hearts, for supporting our cause through finance, encouragement, and prayer! We love you all and are so blessed by your willingness to pour into this cause. Lifesong for Orphans, in partnership with Watkinsville First Baptist Church, is offering us a $2,000 matching grant!
We know without a doubt that this is God's plan for growing our family. We are so honored that He has chosen us to be Jenny's family!
If you haven't heard our wonderful news: ITS A GIRL! Our precious 3-year-old daughter is waiting for us in the Philippines! Our very excited 8-year-old is ready to be promoted to "Big Sister"!
Two years ago we began to pray about adoption. After a couple of months of praying and trying to make a decision, the Lord made it very clear that international adoption was the route we were to take. In January 2018, we made it official: The Smith Family is Adopting! Since then we've had quite a journey!
Everyone's adoption journey is different, but every detail of the adoption process grows you in unbelievable ways. Through every piece of paperwork, financial strain, and delay, we've come to expect the Lord to show up in the midst. He never fails.
And now, adventure awaits! This part of the journey is coming to an end with our sweet little one finally coming home! We are raising the final amount needed to complete our adoption. Including travel, post-adoption, and initial medical needs.
Again, we thank you, for your consideration of how best to support our family! To God be the glory, great things He has done!
Michael, Jessica, & Autumn Smith
