Adopting Baby J

Hello friends and family!

As many of you know, we are currently in the process of adopting our first baby! We are so excited for the opportunity to grow our family and provide a loving home for our child.

We began our journey in August with a pre-application to a local adoption agency. We are currently preparing for our home study and finishing up the paperwork necessary to be approved for a match. The timeline of the adoption process is uncertain, and is dependent on a lot of external factors. However, we are hoping to be matched with an expectant mother and possibly be placed with our child sometime this year.

We are writing this letter to invite you to be part of our journey. Adoption comes with a lot of expenses, and we want to prepare our family and our home to be able to welcome this new child. The funds raised through this page will be used to cover adoption-related expenses, such as legal costs, agency fees, and medical expenses. We so appreciate your help in caring for our future baby!

In addition to funds, we are also asking for prayer. We began this process in faith, knowing that God is working all things for his glory. Adoption can be a long and uncertain process, and we appreciate prayers for patience and peace as we continue our waiting. Please pray also for our expectant mother and our waiting child. We don’t know who they are yet, but we are hoping to meet them soon!

Thank you for reading this letter, and for being part of our journey. We appreciate your prayers and support and look forward to the day when we can tell our child about all the people who prayed and waited for them!
