We have BEEN CHOSEN TO adopt a baby in two weeks!
Can you financially help us increase our adoption funds with a matching grant of $4,000 available to us?
Friends & Family,
We are thrilled to announce that a young pregnant woman has chosen us to be the adoptive parents of her soon-to-be-born baby! The baby is due the last week in October, so we are quickly readying ourselves for a possible month-long stay in Florida (legal requirement in baby’s birth place/state) and paying the legal and adoptive fees. Our son, Alex, now four years old, came to our family through a domestic adoption in 2015, and we’ve wanted to expand our family ever since. Adoption has been such a blessing to us!! Alex prays for a brother or sister every evening, and we are more than ready to welcome this new child into our family.
You can be a part of our adoption process!
Our immediate financial goal is $14,000 although the adoption will cost up to $30,000 when all is completed. We are always saving financially for prospective adoption expenses, which include legal fees, agency fees, home study fees, and expectant mother living expenses. Of great blessing to us is Lifesong for Orphans, through a partnership with our church, Castleton Community Church, which has approved us for a matching $4,000 grant when we raise the first $4,000! That means donations of $50 are worth $100; $100 is worth $200, and so on. Our immediate goal of $14,000 could have $8,000 covered right away by this matching grant! All financial gifts are tax-deductible with Lifesong’s grant.
If you’d like to make a donation for our adoption, it’s easy!
Make your check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans” with “Preference: #09010 Pressnell” on the memo line of the check, and mail to Lifesong for Orphans, P. O. Box 40, Gridley, IL 61744.

Your support financially and also in prayer is so greatly appreciated! Bless you, friends and family, for whatever you can give. As we grow our family, we look forward to celebrating with you!
Steve, Brandi, & Alex
