Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and oppressed. Psalm 82:3
After six failed matches with expectant mothers from all around the U.S., it feels so good to say that we may soon have the child God intends for us.
We have done everything we can on our part, through prayer, faith, and trusting in the Lord, to see ourselves up to this point. We have made sacrifices and changed many of our ways of living during this journey in order to get where we are today. We have saved money to begin the process with the home study, sold 2 cars and replaced them with 2 cheaper ones to make our full payment to the adoption agency, cut down in some categories of our monthly budget to begin setting up a nursery, and sold some unused and valuable items through online sites to save for the next few mountains we have to climb: attorney/legal/birth mother medical & living expenses, and finalization/post placement fees.
To keep it real with you all, we have spent over $25,000 already, and we have an estimated $20,000 ahead of us. We believe that with fundraisers, we can supplement all we are doing in order to reach our goal. We are not ones to ask for help, but we fully believe that God is stretching us to ask His children to help with something we believe is from Him. We want to do fundraisers that aren't just about asking for money, but rather, inviting you to be a part of something bigger than yourselves, and receive a token as a reminder of your support.
Would you consider joining us and be part of our beautiful story?
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31:8-9
