Adopting Lucy

$3,250 of $12,600 goal

Raised by 20 people in 42 months
We are Chuck and Laura Rayman.  We have been married 8 years.  From very early on when we were dating, we agreed we wanted to have children and ideally wanted to have three kiddos, if it was to be God’s will.

We are very grateful to have been able to have two biological children but now, for the past 3 years we have felt called to adopt.  It is estimated that there are 153 million orphans around the world…and we pray very soon there will be one less.  As of November ’14, we have accepted the referral of a precious little girl from Henan, China.  Lucy Mei-Xing will turn two at the end of February and was born with cleft lip and palate.  We hope and pray that we just might be there for “Gotcha Day” before this adorable little one has her next birthday.

International adoption is an expensive process and we expect the total fees to be near $29,000 despite having been very careful in selecting our adoption agency which does an amazing job at keeping their fees quite low relative to other agencies.  While we have generally been blessed with a decent income, like many Americans during the past few years of economic turndown, our earnings have not been at their usual level - especially in 2014.

So, this is where you can help!  Even the smallest contributions add up. If you cannot contribute, then maybe you can pray for us and spread the word of our need to others you know to increase awareness. If each person donated just $25, we could meet our need with about 500 people.  Please help us spread the word through social media and help make our dreams come true. We are working very hard to raise as much of the money as possible ourselves. With your help and support we know we can reach our goal. The Lord has been providing and we have faith that He will continue to provide.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your interest and time and we pray you will consider helping us.

In Him,

Chuck and Laura Rayman
