WE ARE ADOPTING!
It's hard to believe it's actually happening! We are beyond excited (and nervous!), and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a sweet new life into our home. If you know us well, you know that adoption has always been a part of our story: from working for a Christian adoption agency, to having adopted siblings, to over 15 years of conversations and prayer…it feels only right that this is how our family will grow.
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 $70,000 or more (yes, you read that right). In fact, that is the primary reason why so many who consider adoption decide against it. We admit, those numbers are intimidating for us as well, but we truly believe that this is the journey God has for us.
We currently have $25,000 put towards the adoption process. While that is a good start, it is a fraction of the total cost. We know that this journey will require grant-writing, continued saving, and sacrifice on our part. We also know we absolutely cannot do it alone. And while that is terrifying, it is also such a beautiful thing to lean on our community to bring this child home. Would you partner with us?
We hope that by by donating towards our adoption you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up. Words cannot describe the incredible impact you’re making on our life and the life of our child. We pray that one day he/she will come to understand the love and generosity of our amazing friends and community.
