The Story

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 about $18,000 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 and Baby Rolland

We have found an attorney to work with. He and his wife seem so nice and very good at what they do! We will meet with them on January the 20th. That is when we will need to pay the retainer fees. We also need to get the home study set up. This week we were blessed with friends and family giving us a stroller, a car seat, a crib, swing a baby seat and some clothes!! Feeling the LOVE for this baby already!!! We are so excited and so blessed to have loving friends and family!!  ALSO, We have a donor who is matching dollar for dollar gifts that you give, up to $7,000!! This is a GREAT time to donate since YOUR gift will be DOUBLED!! Thank you to all of you who have helped us get this far! Please take a moment and SHARE this on social media!! Have a FABULOUS New Year!! Thank you, The Rollands

God is leading and I am reminded over and over that this is in His timing.  We had received $191 in donations and an expense was due of $250. Within 30 minutes of getting the text that $250 was needed (for mom's rent) someone handed me a Christmas card with $60 in it. We now had $251. God is Good.
