Help us find our missing piece!

We have been longing to become parents since we were married on November 16, 2013.  We have been praying about this since the day we were wed. Through lots of prayer and many conversations, God has led us to adoption.  We are VERY excited about this new journey that the Lord is leading us on. 
How can you help?
1- Pray for us throughout this journey
2- Pray for our future child
3- Pray for the birth parents of our future child
4- Give financially
We are hoping our friends and family will help complete a puzzle for our baby's nursery.  We have a 1,000 piece puzzle that we would like to put together - with your help! Each donation of $25 will sponsor one puzzle piece.  For every piece sponsored, we will write the donor name on the back of the piece. (Ex. $25 donation=1 puzzle piece, $50 donation=2 puzzle pieces)32305828_153481232682659_r.jpeg
Once completed the puzzle will be framed and when our child is older we will be able to show him/her all of the people that loved them before they even knew them.  We will post updated pictures of the progress of our puzzle, as well as updated details of our adoption journey. 
We believe that it takes a village to help raise a child, and we would love for you to be a part of our village.  
For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27

It's been a month or so since we updated, so here is where we are now! We have met with our caseworker, and our home study will be finished soon! We have been advised to get our nursery ready, so we are in the process of doing that. Picking out paint colors, cribs, etc. Such an exciting time for us! To all that have already donated, thank you SO much! We still have quite a ways to go before reaching what we need to fund this adoption. Please consider sharing our story with your friends. We still have plenty of puzzle pieces without names. We would love to have a name on at least half (if not all!) of the puzzle pieces. We appreciate all of your prayers and financial support!

No huge news to share, but we do have a quick financial update! Due to the generosity of our friends and family we have now raised $6000! (Our fundraising page will not show donations that we receive in person!) This means that we have 240 puzzle pieces sponsored. We have started this visual to chart our progress while the puzzle is still being worked on. Thank you again for you support and prayers!

We have 165 puzzle pieces sponsored! We are SO thankful for that!! Of course that means there are still quite a few pieces left that people can sponsor. :)
An update on our journey: we are about to start our home study. Paperwork has been sent, and things are moving along. Please pray for us as we enter this next step in our journey!

While trying to put the puzzle together tonight, I became overwhelmed. First, I began to doubt I would ever get the border of the puzzle put together. That doubt then led to me beginning to fear that we would never find the funds to continue this adoption. After a momentary breakdown, I was reminded that there is no need to fear the finances of something that God has so clearly led us to! God's word clearly instructs us in Psalms 37:5 to "commit everything you do to the Lord, TRUST HIM, and He will help you." and then in verse 7 to "Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act." So, no matter where this path leads us, I know that God will provide a way! We must simply rely on His grace and goodness!
Thank you to all who have already donated, those who are thinking about donating, and to everyone that is praying for us. We love and appreciate all of you!
