Mark and I want to expand our family. For those of you that dont know, I had to have a hysterectomy back in 2010 due to severe endometriosis and preterm pregnancies with both my boys. Mark has never had any children of his own so God has called us to adopt instead! We are thrilled to be doing this. We have completed our home study and are working with an adoption consultant agency called mustard seed. From the moment I found them we fell in love with them. We became active with mustard seed and now are just waiting to be matched with an expectant momma.
As I am sure you can guess adoption is expensive. So while we wait we will be doing some fundraising, taking donations to help with fees and travel. We have be approved for a matching grant through lifesong adoption for up to $3,500. Such a huge blessing! This is a platform to help us spread the word and raise funds to help us bring our baby home. If you donate anything over $50 it's tax deductable and Lifesong with give you a receipt. These funds will go directly to the adoption agency fees and travel, which is the most expensive part.
Please help in anyway you can and spread to word.
