The Story

Many of you know Jeremy and I have been struggling with infertility. After exhausting many options with a specialist, Jeremy and I decided to adopt. Here we are. Off the wait list and going through the vetting process to become parents. Several of our friends and family have asked how they can support us in this process. All forms of support are welcome and appreciated. This page provides a central location to keep up with us in the process and to donate financially if you wish to do so. (You can always message us directly if you'd like to donate in another way.)

We just hit our next major milestone - our application payments are now fully processed! Yay! This is a big step in the process because it means that we are now just playing the waiting game and don't have to worry about any more of the initial administrative obligations. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us through the stress of the process so far. Now to ask for prayers for peace while we learn how to wait patiently for a family to pick us! 
We are also certainly very thankful for all the financial help that we have received. We have been able to comfortably make the payments required so far, but we would appreciate your continued efforts to share our story, our posts, and consider a donation if you haven't done so. To give a quick insight into how the agency payment process works, our application and home study fees have been processed as of today - that means we've paid our agency $6480 thus far. Going forward, we will be asked to make monthly payments of a little under $1400 until the full balance is paid off. 

If (and we certainly hope it happens!) a child is placed with us before we pay off the balance with these monthly payments, the full balance will be due soon after. The agency will work with us if things happen suddenly, but we are doing everything we can to prepare for the possibility of needing to pay off the balance quickly. All that is to say, your continued help in whatever ways you are able is GREATLY appreciated!

Great news! We had our home visit today and it went very well. Now it's just a matter of a week or two for the agency to finalize all the paperwork and then we could be matched at any time. Thank you for all the support and prayers in the process! We'll keep checking in throughout the wait, but this is a great milestone on the journey.

Overwhelmed. Overwhelmed is the only word that appropriately describes our journey. Overwhelmed with sadness, frustration, stress, fear. But recently, seemingly over night, overwhelmed with hope and peace. Overwhelmed with delight that soon a sweet baby will come home with us. Overwhelmed by the love you have shown us. Our adoption home study is this Friday afternoon. Perhaps you could overwhelm us with prayers as we take the final step in the vetting process.
