Hello! We are the Cook Family (Peter and Emily).
We have been in the process of adoption for almost two years. Although there have been some ups and downs, it has always been clear that God called us to adoption. We are pursuing infant adoption from the United States. It is a process that involves heartbreak on several levels, but we trust God in the redemption of the multiple lives that will be touched through our adoption.
Through God’s grace, we have raised a little over $20,000 and just found out we have been awarded a $4500 matching grant from Orphan Care Alliance Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. We need at least $40,000 total and are floored by the provision God has displayed through the village of people (family, friends, co-workers, and even strangers) that have loved us so well in this time.
Thank you for your consideration in helping us bring baby home. May the Glory be His.
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 “Cook 09303”, 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.
