Adopting Simon & Solomon

$6,051 of $45,000 goal

Raised by 34 people in 2 months
Created November 22, 2018

Psalm 68:6 says "God sets the lonely in families," and YOU have an opportunity to be a part of that process!

Surely Lisa and the twins, Simon and Solomon, have become a family over the years, but they are hoping and praying that God makes a way for them to officially become a Forever Family through adoption.

When she first met the twins, they were in desperate need of consistent love.  Since then, God has used Lisa to see remarkable growth and change in them.  This little family is already a beautiful picture of God's redemptive work.  Surely He has even more in store for their future!

Many expenses will come up along the way in this process, though the exact total is still uncertain.  (So, the financial goal of this fundraiser may change as specifics become more clear.)
  
Will you help Lisa adopt Simon, & Solomon?

Would you like to be one of the instruments that God uses to do his work in the life of these boys?

Make a donation today towards the adoption of these twins, and become a part of the story of how God sets Simon and Solomon into a forever family.

Hey everyone!

Well, I've applied to, and been accepted by, and adoption agency! Woot woot!

Now the big expenses are rolling in as we start working through paperwork and everything!

I'm so thankful for everyone who has given to our adoption journey so far, making it possible for us to make our first big payment!

Many more expenses in creating this Forever Family are on the horizon, so we are praying for more generosity as we anticipate them.

I am confident that God brought the twins into my home, therefore, I am confident that He will make a way, even when there seems to be no way!

This morning I read from Isaiah 9, and loved the words of verse 2:
"The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
a light has dawned
on those living in the land of darkness."

A light is dawning, and we are walking in it!

Well, today God arranged a divine appointment for me to meet with someone who works with an adoption agency out of the USA, who specifically works with Ugandan adoptions.
It was a great connection to make, questions answered, support felt, guidance given, and hope for moving forward.
She also helped me clarify a more accurate estimate on what we will need to raise for our adoption expenses. So, I've changed our goal on this GoFundMe to represent her advice.
Please join with us as we pray and believe God will provide!
Thanks for being a part of creating this Forever Family!
