Kronawetter Adoption!

Aaron Kronawetter Lititz, Pennsylvania

Hey friends and family,

 

Allison and I have an exciting announcement; we are adopting again! 

 
It has been an absolute blessing and joy welcoming Raelynn into our family and we have absolutely loved being parents!  We are so excited to grow our family once again through adoption and we cannot wait to share our love and our home with another child.
 

We always knew we desired to be parents one day, and from the beginning of our dating relationship we had discussed our heart for adoption. This calling on our lives was further confirmed through the health trials we’ve experienced in our six years of marriage. The most notable confirmation was Allison’s stroke, less than a year into our marriage, which was caused by hormonal birth control. Since having her stroke in 2016 Allison has endured other health issues, which have caused us to question the risks involved with Allison bearing a child. We know God has been refining us through these trials and we know His plan is greater than our own.

We have completed the preliminary steps that are required to be considered as an approved adoptive family and are working with several adoption agenciesThis means that any day we could receive a call, but despite not knowing when we will be welcoming another child into our home, we trust and wait on God’s perfect timing.

We want to welcome our friends and family to join us in prayer and support on our journey. Our projected costs for our adoption will range from $53,000-60,000+. We have been blessed to have been connected with Lifesong and Team 127 through our church at LEFC, and our church has graciously given us a matching grant of $8,000. We would greatly appreciate your support, monetarily as well as through your prayers and encouragement!

What these funds go toward:

Home Study- $1,800

Application Fees- $1,200

Agency Fee – $30,000

Legal Fees- $5,100

Living Expenses for Birth Mom- $17,500

Post Placement Visitation From Case Worker- $750

Travel Costs- $1,200

How can you pray:

1. Pray for the expectant mother, pray that we might be able to share the love of Christ with her and encourage her.

2. Pray for the child and their safety in utero. Pray for the child’s health and that they would go to full term.

3. Pray that we would trust the Lord even when the road may seem bleak.

4. Pray that we would be patient and wait on God’s perfect timing.

5. Pray for God’s hand in our lives as we grow our family once again through adoption and that our eyes would remain fixed on Christ.

We cannot express enough our gratitude and appreciation for your love and support in our journey to becoming a family of 4!

Love,

 

Aaron and Allison
