We have BIG news!
We are in the process of adopting a child! More specifically, we are adopting a four year old boy from China with a critical heart defect. His name is Chinese name Cheng Lei. His english name is Theo.
We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome this beautiful new life into our home. As part of our adoption process, we have started a crowdfunding campaign. It may surprise you to hear that adoption related costs can easily total up to $40,000 or more, with adoption costs, processing and paperwork fees, and home prep. This is why we are working with Adopt Together to help ease the financial burden that often overwhelms adoptive parents. Plus, we wanted to have a place where we could invite our friends to join us in the process of bringing Theo home.
We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around Theo as he grows up.
Even if you can't give at this time, we would greatly appreciate your prayers for Theo and our family as we move forward.
