Dear friends and family,
As many of you know Mercy and I are in the process of adoption. Recently, we have been "chosen" by a birthmother who is due September 25th! We have met with her and are all in agreement to "move forward" meaning we will very likely be parents--very soon! Although nothing is "for sure" with adoption, we are trusting God and believing this is the child He has chosen for us.* We are extremely excited, and our hearts are overwhelmed about growing our family through domestic infant open adoption.
So, in case you didn't already know, adoption is quite costly. In fact for me (Gus) I struggled in the beginning with the amount it was going to cost, but eventually I took the step of faith past my fears. We are choosing to trust that God will provide no matter what. But we also feel led to invite you to join us in our journey in helping us bring baby home! So far we have managed to pay more than 1/2 of what we owe, and our hope is for this adoption to be debt-free.
We covet your prayers, and if you feel led in your heart to make a donation of any amount we (future baby included) would be most humbled and grateful.
~gus & mercy
*If, for whatever reason, this match does not work out, we would use whatever money we raise for a future adoption.
