As many of you know, for awhile now we have felt like the Wrigglesworth family is incomplete! The addition of Henry to our family through adoption has given us more joy than words can describe and as such we have decided to grow our family through adoption a second time! Henry is excited and ready to be a big brother and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of another blessing to our home!
Those of you who have traveled with us through life know that the adoption journey is full of beauty, grief, and humility. That being said, we are once again needing to rely on our friends and family to help make this dream a reality. Mostly we need your prayers and emotional support. Please pray for this future child and his/her birth family. That they would feel peace and be protected physically, spiritually and emotionally. That they would feel God’s love and that God would prepare us all to come together as a family. Please also pray for Henry as he prepares to be a big brother and that the Lord would be honored and glorified in our family as we navigate the beauty, difficulties, and complexities of this adoption journey. Additionally, if you are able, we humbly ask that you would consider supporting us financially. As you may already know, adoption can cost $35,000-$45,000 and this financial burden is one that we cannot carry alone. We have been blessed through Lifesong for Orphans in partnership with Every Child Ministry with an Adoption Matching Grant of $4000 to help bring this child home. Giving toward our adoption will be matched by these ministries up to $4000 and by using this platform to give, all of your donations will be tax deductible. If we are honest, this is one of the hardest things about growing our family through adoption- asking others for financial help to make it happen. Thank you for loving and supporting us on this journey. We are beyond grateful for you.
