We have BIG news!
We are adopting a baby!
The Lord has put it on our hearts over the past few years. As we considered adding a third child to our family, we consistently felt the Lord leading us to adoption. The Lord continued to confirm this decision through his persistent directing and opening of opportunities. We feel called to share and give our love to another child. We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a 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. This is why we have set a goal of $30,000 to help ease the financial burden that often overwhelms adoptive parents.
We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up.
A few details:
-We just wrapped up our home study!
-We are currently working on our profile book for prospective birth parents and expect to go active in mid-August.
-We are adopting domestically - a newborn.
-We could be waiting 2 weeks or 2 years, it's only in God's timing.
-We have some money set aside for adoption. But we know many of your have hearts for adoption and orphan care. We want to invite you into a front row seat to experience this adoption process with us.
Most importantly, will you pray with us as we follow God's prompting and leading on this path of adoption?
“It’s important to realize that we adopt not because we are rescuers. No. We adopt because we are rescued.” - David Platt
