Robinson Party of Eleven!
We are not new to adoption, and as God continues to bless us, He also continues to open our hearts and home to father the fatherless.
We truly believe that God hand picks each child, before they are born, and creates them to be an integral part of our family. In the past we may have been surprised with some our children’s diagnosis, but God already knew and He knew that each child held unimaginable potential regardless of their diagnosis or what others might “think” their future may hold. We are beyond proud and humbled that we get a ring-side seat to His amazing miracles in their lives and we are beyond exited to witness that which He will do yet again in our two new little ones.
The two we are adopting this time have neurological disabilities – something with which we have some experience and therefore already have all the specialists on board to see to their care and development. Our God is good and He is able to do more than we could ever think or imagine.
Adoption for their country is fast. In just four months, we have completed our home study and lack only one document to completing our dossier – USCIS/immigration approval. We expect that any day. Once received, we will be submitted in country and shortly thereafter, receive an invitation to travel and meet them.
Up to this point we have spent over $10,000 but we still need to raise about $30,000 to be fully funded. In an effort to help us attain this goal, Lifesong for Orphans, through our church Warren Baptist, has blessed us with a matching grant of $3500. That means for every dollar donated to our fund, a dollar will be match up to $3500 bringing the total to $7000. We are so thankful for this help for just as in Luke Chapter 5, Peter and Andrew needed help to bring in the big haul of fish, so we need others to come along side and help up with this adoption. Please know that your donation to bringing two precious babies home is greatly appreciated.
Best wishes and many blessings,
Jode, Kelley and family
