Help us bring Our Daughter Home
Hi!! My name is Erika and I have been married to my husband, Chadd for 20 years. We have three amazing boys, Benjamin, Zachary and Jonathan!! When Chadd and I were dating we dreamed of getting married, having two or three children and adopting. Chadd finished school, we got married, we (eventually, after years of infertility) had three children of our own… but the final piece, adopting, just never seemed to work out for us. We looked into international adoptions, local adoption agencies, foster care to adopt, it just didn’t seem meant to be. My prayer started to be, “OK Lord, if this is something that YOU want and not just something that I want then YOU will have to work it out. Clearly, I am having no success at arranging this. So, if this is YOUR will then please have someone call us and let us know that they have or know of a little girl that needs a home.” That became my prayer.
That takes us to this month. To a Friday night a couple weeks ago when I got a text from a friend. “… we know a lady… pregnant… can’t keep her… do you want to adopt a baby girl?” The answer to a prayer that had been prayed for years. We talked to each other, we talked to our boys, we talked to God, we laughed, and cried and felt pretty much every emotion all at the same time.
We have been given the amazing privilege of adopting this sweet baby in March but adoption is not cheap and we need help bringing her home. We need over $20,000 total to complete this Christmas Miracle!! We are saving money where we can and cutting expenses. My hope is that many of you will want to be part of that miracle! If a couple thousand of you would be willing to help by donating $2, or $5, maybe you can afford $25 or more, then if you would SHARE this on social media, I think with your help we can make this miracle a reality! Whatever the amount, we would be so grateful for your help in bringing home our daughter! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!
With Love and Gratitude,
Chadd, Erika, Ben, Zack, JT & Anneliese
