More Room in our Hearts

Allie Casavant Omaha, Nebraska

Dear Friends and Family,

We are so excited to share our Adoption Journey with you! Adoption is something we’ve been praying about relentlessly for almost 3 years now as Allie’s pregnancies and postpartums became increasingly more complicated. We are certain of our path to growing our family and are rejoicing that God has led us here. We are now actively waiting to be matched with sweet baby #3! 

Many have asked how they can support us on this journey, but we want to emphasize again that the most important thing you can do for us is PRAY! Adoption is so beautiful as we welcome a new soul to love, but adoption is also a great sacrifice for a birth mama who loves her child too. Please be praying for our future expectant mother and her heart and for the health of the child she’s carrying. We know when the timing is right, our stories will connect, but for now, all we can do is pray for her and our future child each and every day.

The other support you can provide is financial. Brian and I have been blessed to be able to begin this journey through our own savings, but adoption is expensive and we’re estimating the total cost to be between 45,000-50,000 dollars. That number is daunting, but God is bigger. Lifesong and the Tim Tebow Foundation have partnered with us and we’re ecstatic to announce that they are providing a matching grant of $8,000. When we first found out, we were speechless. We’re incredibly humbled that we were chosen for this gift. So much so that we may have to become Broncos fans.

If you desire to contribute financially to our adoption expenses, please use this link to do so. 100% of donations received go directly to our adoption, are tax deductible, and are DOUBLED due to the matching grant. Asking for money is hard, but we know that there are seasons of life where we’re asked to give and seasons where we’re asked to receive. This is one of those seasons where we’re humbly asking for help to make the most of this gift.

Thank you for playing a part in our journey. Whether that’s through prayer or resources, we’re grateful you’re here and can’t wait to someday introduce you to our sweet child through adoption and God’s providence.

With Love,

Brian, Allie, Rose, and Lucy
