It is with great joy that we announce that we are ADOPTING!
To those we do daily life with, it's no secret that this subject has been on our hearts these past few years-- and we are SO excited to finally be at this stage of our journey!
While we were dating, we fell in love with the idea of adopting once we had a few biological children. Little did we know that God had a different plan in mind. Right before getting married, we learned that for health-related reasons we would be unable to have healthy children as easily as our friends and families. Saying that this news was easy to hear would be a complete lie-- hearing this shook us to the core. Having children always seemed like the easy and obvious next step after getting married and all of a sudden it seemed like the biggest hurdle. After much prayer, the Lord delicately began to unveil his plan to us. We started meeting adoptive families. We started reading about adoption and looking into adoption in Florida. We met with a fertility specialist who basically turned away our business and lifted up the beauty of adoption. Slowly but with absolute certainty, our desires began to shift towards adoption-- towards bringing home the little boy or girl that God has specifically designed for us and was clearly leading us to pursue.
So with that... Baby Borda is on the way! We do not know if it will be a matter of weeks, months, or years until he/she arrives, but we know that there is a specific little boy or girl out there who God is designing to have us as their parents. Sometimes the difficult patches in life end up turning into the greatest blessings and we truly believe that is what the Lord is providing in this season.
We are adopting an infant domestically through Bethany Christian Services, a national adoption agency that has been helping match babies to hopeful parents since 1944. The total cost is expected to begin at $26,000, so we will be fundraising along the way to make this dream a reality. All funds raised through this site will go directly towards covering our adoption expenses: Application Fees, Homestudy Fees, Attorney Fees, Legal Fees, etc.
We realize that we are asking you to give and sacrifice on behalf of our family and we truly do not take that lightly. Every dollar and every prayer makes a difference-- Your support will literally change our lives and grow our family. We could never find the words to express how thankful we are for every bit of support!
Every donation of $25 will go towards the completion of our fundraiser puzzle! We had a 672 piece puzzle created and are “selling” each piece. You can choose to buy 1, 2, 3, or 10-- There is no limit! Once you purchase a piece via donation, we will write your name on the back of one of the puzzle pieces and post updates periodically. Once every single piece has been “sold”, we will put the puzzle together and hang it in a double-sided glass frame for our child’s room so that he/she can always look back and be reminded of who had a “piece” of bringing him/her home!
