We’ve been placed with twin boys!

Zac West
Zac West Fleming Island, Florida
We took an immediate placement of twin 1 year old boys on Wednesday, June 6th! We took the call on Monday and brought the boys home on Wednesday. We have an adoption home study tomorrow. We do not have custody. It’s a temporary placement with a good chance of finalizing THIS FRIDAY! Lots of details, logistics, legal work, etc…
All I can tell you now is that we are hopeful, the boys are adorable and we would love to bring them into our family forever. The boys are from Orlando and the mom has decided to get them into a better situation.
We have high hopes but we also understand that we could be driving the boys back to Orlando this week.
What can you do?
1. Pray! Pray that this would all actually happen. Pray for the boys health, growth and development. Pray for this sweet mom that she is at peace with her decision to get the boys taken care of and move her own life forward towards health. Pray for Hannah, Zara and I in the process that we can get rest, think clearly and trust the process.
2. GIVE and share our story! Due to the immediate placement and possibility of completion on Friday, all of our funds for the adoption will be due. We have barely started doing some fundraising in the past few weeks but now we need to hustle a bit. $21,500 is due on Friday. Fortunately some of you have already contributed and that is awesome. Right this second we have $8,400 in the adoption account and a $3,000 matching gift. So technically we have raised $11,400. A little over $10,000 to go! If you can help…THANK YOU so much. Maybe you’d also be willing to share our story with a friend that could help as well. We are currently keeping this off social media so only share by email or text.
Thanks again and we are so excited!
Zac, Hannah and Zara
