As most of you know, we started the adoption process earlier this year. Through our adoption program, were expecting a phone call that would let us know that our family had been chosen by a birth mother and when the baby would be due and then go and get that baby in a few months. But God had other plans!
We have received THE phone call from our adoption agency and we get to adopt NOW! We are adopting two wonderful babies! Unfortunately we can't share any personally identifying information right now. Thank you for your grace.
This wasn't exactly our plan, although we knew it could happen this way. With multiple fundraisers in the works and grant programs that haven't responded yet, we still need to raise $41,000 dollars in order to complete legal placement for our adoption! We will have other legal fees once we return to Washington, but we will cross that road once we get there.
Our timeline is wildly, dramatically tight. We won't be able to legally have custody until the fees are paid!. In order to complete placement, we must have the $41,000 in hand. If we aren't able to complete placement soon then the baby will be moved into caring homes. We want so badly to avoid this. Infants need closeness, familiarity, and so many other things. We will try to avoid them being placed in caring homes at all costs. We know that the finances will work out, somehow in someway. The timing of things is not our own anymore. This is a huge journey of faith we are on.
We are blown away that this is happening right now. Our excitement can't be penned properly, at least not by me. We are asking you to help us raise the money we need to reach placement for our adoption. Your prayers and encouragement are also so greatly appreciated.
