After waiting in the adoption process for 4 years, we adopted our son, Felix, this past March. In June, we got an unexpected phone call informing us that his birth mom is pregnant and has decided to place this child for adoption too. She asked if we’d be able to adopt Felix’s biological sibling, and we happily said yes! The baby is due mid December. We are shocked and thrilled at the opportunity to welcome another child into our family so soon, and we’re overjoyed that this child will be Felix’s biological sibling!
In order to make this adoption happen, we are depending on the support of our community. We have already received an outpouring of excitement and support from our friends and family, as well as a matching grant through Lifesong for Orphans – which means they will match the first $5,626 given through this platform. Please prayerfully consider donating towards our adoption journey. All gifts through Lifesong are 100% tax deductable (see instructions below). We cannot thank you enough for your prayers, encouragent, and generosity!
Chris, Amanda & Felix
