Seven years ago we started praying for a baby. What we weren’t ready for was hitting the roadblock of infertility followed by years of failed treatments. It hasn’t been the journey we expected, but along the difficult road of loss, waiting and longing, the Lord has met us at every point and placed adoption on our hearts! All of you have surrounded us and been the village God knew we needed. Now, we need you more than ever!
We are home study approved and able to present our profiles to expectant birth moms. We could be matched anytime! There is one huge hurdle between us and our baby: FUNDRAISING! Most of the agencies require all or half of the funds at the time you’re matched with a birth mom. The total expense for the adoption of our baby is between $40,000 and $50,000. Your donations will help us Bring Home Baby C and become a family!
Fear of finances and what people would think about us fundraising almost stopped us from pursuing adoption all together. The day we decided to send in our application this came across my phone: “God Never Gives You A Dream That Matches Your Budget. He’s Not Checking Your Bank Account, He’s Checking Your Faith.” There is nothing more humbling, vulnerable and uncomfortable than asking other people for money. The expense may be big but we believe our God is bigger.
We cannot begin to describe how much we appreciate your prayers, donations, love and encouragement. Thank you will never be enough! To follow along with our journey please visit out our blog: www.bringinghomebabyc.com and view our Video Announcement Story.
It will take our village and more to see this happen. We’d love for you to do three things:
1. Ask the Lord what He would have you give? Every dollar matters!
2. Share this page on social media and with your village of friends. The best way you can get behind our story is to share it with someone else.
3. Please continue to pray for us, our baby + his or her birth family, this is so complex and affects more than just us.
We plan to write your names and attach photos in a book I will create once you have donated. I want our baby to know how loved he or she is and be able to read their book at any moment. We also want to be able to pray and support all of you in return!
Our infertility and this adoption is really God’s story and although he may have specifically called us to action with adoption, we believe he calls all of his people to be involved in adoption in some form. Donating to us is one way you can help adopt one of God’s beloved children.
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Him, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
Thank You & God Bless,
