The Story

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!


Puzzle Fundraiser

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!

It blows our minds how far we have come in this journey, and we know with 100% confidence that we wouldn't be where we are without the support of all of YOU. Seriously! We are halfway to our fundraising goal (NUTS!!) and as of today we are also officially done with the homestudy portion and a waiting family!!! We are elated!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Additionally, we specifically appreciate all of the prayers that you all have been praying for our family. We truly believe in the power of prayer and they mean SO much to us. Some folks have asked for specific prayer requests, so if you would like to join us in prayer, please consider lifting up the following:
  • Our hearts, as we enter this season of waiting. Please pray that we would wait well, and not trust in our own idea of "good timing".
  • Baby Borda's birth family-- they are going to be making an incredibly difficult decision in placing Baby Borda in our care, and although it fills us with immense joy, it will most likely be accompanied by an indescribable pain for the birth family. Please pray for peace in their hearts and confidence in their adoption plan.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are SO blown away by the support that we have received from friends, family and strangers in our pursuit to bring home Baby Borda! We are currently in the middle of the home study AND fundraising process and expect to be considered a waiting family at the beginning of the year. Once at that stage, there is no telling how soon we will be meeting Baby Borda!

We so appreciate your continued support and literally would not be able to make this happen without you. It's true what they say-- it really does take a village! Baby Borda is already so loved!
