We just wanted to update everyone on our progress with fundraising. The good news is that we have now raised $12,648.07 and personally saved $11,551.93 for a grand total of $24,200. Thank you!
While we know there are many good causes to contribute to this Lent, please prayerfully consider making our adoption cause part of your Lenten alms giving. You would be giving the amazing gift of family to all those involved with the adoption and be helping the "least of these" (Matthew 25:40) - children who are in need of a good home and family, birth parents in need of an adoptive home for their children during crisis pregnancies as well as support during their pregnancy, and us who need help to live the gift of motherhood and fatherhood. If you know of anyone who would be willing to support us, then please pass the word on about our blog too.
Finally, please do not forget the important work of prayer for us this Lent! We could definitely use it as we navigate this tricky period of waiting and explore pursuing private adoption (we search for situations / birth parents in need of an adoptive home
for their children) in addition to adoption through an agency (they find
situations / birth parents in need of an adoptive home for their
children), which is our current set-up.
