We started by expressing our desire to adopt a child specifically in order to save their life from abortion.
After an incredible response to our post, we realized the need for a long process to adopt and began that journey. After finally completing that road and getting home study approved, we had been awaiting the opportunity to save a life to come about.
Then we heard about a sweet 5 year old boy from Africa who had been adopted in Spring 2016 but whose adoptive parents needed to find him a new placement. Their story spoke to our hearts and the Lord made it very clear to move in that direction - that ALL Life matters, not just infants. And so we listened, moved forward, and are now in the process of bringing this boy home and adopting him!
As of December 1, in this new situation, we still need to raise about $8,000 (which would be about $13,000 total) to cover the remaining legal expenses and adoption fees. If we are able to raise more than that, it would help to cover the cost of family counseling, speech therapy, and all the other various immediate needs in providing for our little man.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support!
For legal reasons, we cannot post pictures or more detailed information until the adoption process is completed.
