God has answered our prayers in a big way in 2017! We have recently been matched with our son Zeke and are close to fully funding our first adoption!
We are grateful to announce that we have been awarded a Lifesong for Orphans matching grant for up to $2,500 funded by Hands of Hope. Funds raised will go towards our adoption including foreign country and orphanage expenses.
Most of you know that we have chosen to adopt two children from West Africa simultaneously, but unfortunately, we must complete and finance our adoptions, including travel to Africa, as two individual adoptions.
We have been blown away by each of you who have graciously become part of our family story through fundraising and/or prayer, and are asking that you will prayerfully consider being a part of our second adoption as well.
Again, we thank you all for your prayers, generosity, and for being a part of our adoption story! We have never felt more blessed or loved than this year!
