Davies' Adoption

$23,012 of $34,000 goal

Raised by 44 people in 26 months
We are Mark and Maritza Davies. We LOVE being parents and we have the opportunity to bring a little girl home from Colombia.

This is our final step in our fundraising efforts. Thanks to you and the Lord, stages 1 & 2 have  been fully funded! That means we are just months away from being matched! 

For stage 3:  We need to raise $14,500. (We added in stage two's funding so we have the grand total listed here) It's a big goal, but together with you and the Lord, we can do it! These fund will take care of everything from travel to immigration and everything in between to bring our little girl home. 

Imagine with us for a moment that you have the chance to change a little girl's life (and our lives) FOREVER... SO fun! Won't you join us? Giving a little or a lot can help us move more quickly toward being matched and bring our little girl home! Together and with the Lord's help, we can do it! 

Give now...

Adoption has been something we have thought about for a number of years and for the last year we have been making preparations. Seth, Samuel, and Tirzah can't stop praying for their "new sister in Colombia".

We are starting this fundraiser now because many of you have asked how you can help us complete the adoption journey. We are a mere 4 months away from bringing our 3-6-year-old daughter home. Your gift to our adoption fund will be such a blessing to her life and our family.  

As you may know, adoption can be costly: There are home study & processing fees, adoptive parent training tuitions, official document translation, medical costs, immigration and identification fees, travel, hotels, agency, and legal fees.

We would feel so honored if you would join in the story with us by giving toward our adoption fund. We thank you in advance for your generosity and love. Our family will never be the same again!

We deep gratitude,

Mark, Maritza, Seth, Samuel, and Tirzah Davies

Hello, Friends! Our adoption process has been moving along slow and steady. Nothing new to report at this moment except that we have not heard anything back from our agency. So, that's actually good news. This means that everything is in order and we will just continue to wait to be matched.

We'd really appreciate your prayers as God leads us to the little girl he has in his mind :)

Thank you for your support and prayer as we journey on :)

Ok! We have a long awaited and slightly sad update for you all!

Two weeks ago, after submitting our big packet of documents, we found out that our timeline will be much longer than we had originally been told. :(

Since the beginning, we've been expecting that we'd be matched within about 8 weeks of sending in out documents to Colombia. And then we should expect to bring our daughter home within a few months after that. That would mean that we could have been bringing our daughter home by the end of March!

However... here's the sad news... We found out that the actual timeline is more like a year from now. We were told that the person who told us the original timeline was misinformed and that we should expect to be matched sometime toward the end of 2017.

We're grateful that it's only going to be a year because we'd be looking at 4 years if Maritza was still a Colombian citizen.

Please continue to stand with us as we raise the rest of the needed funds and as we pray for God to bring us the daughter he has in mind.

We're still aiming at the 3-6-year-old range and are hopeful we'll hear news soon.

Thank you so much for your love, support, and prayers!

We'll keep you informed as we know more.

Love, Mark & Maritza + Seth, Samuel & Tirzah
