Update! We now have TWO precious babies with PWS that we get to love! Solomon and his new baby sister! This new baby is 8 weeks old and is just perfect <3
Many of you know that we traveled out of state to get placement of our new son in late March! He is such a joy and we could not be more thrilled to be chosen as his family!
He has a very rare genetic disorder that is lifelong. [He is truly perfection!]
Lord-willing, his adoption will be finalized in the next 6 months. Until then, we continue to have social worker visits, do paperwork, and wait!
We were chosen to receive a matching grant from Lifesong for Orphans after we came home with Solomon. “Fortunately” (haha!) we still have adoption costs!!
With this matching grant, every dollar donated is matched, dollar for dollar! Up to $5,000! What a huge blessing!
If you feel called to give (and we know that so so many of you already have, and THANK YOU!) please use this link to have it matched <3
Thank you, friends!
Dennis, Bethany, Sam, Melina, Elsa, Ben, Jeffy, Nora, Erienne, and new Baby Solomon
P.S. As the owners of One Less Orphan Benefit Store, you may be wondering why we don’t have funds for our own adoption. The answer is pretty simple; we give it all away! We are thrilled to have helped fund several international and domestic adoptions through our store, as well as supporting numerous children and families in the US and overseas that are in need of help and finances. We trust that the God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills will provide the finances we suddenly need, too.
STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction)*. Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”. In the memo line please write “Tilzey 10497”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, Gridley, IL 61744.
Lifesong has been blessed with partners who underwrite all U.S. administrative and fundraising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.
