Adoption Fund

Dear Friends ,

We wanted to let you know about some exciting new for our family - we are adopting! We have been battling infertility for the last 3+ years and after our 3rd miscarriage this past fall we made the decision to move forward with an adoption. We have always wanted to adopt at some point; we just thought it would be after the births of our own biological children. We have faith that someday God will honor our prayers and grant us a biological child; however, we deeply feel the desire to be parents now and believe this is a way we can honor God in the process.

Now here is where you come in:
First and foremost we are asking you to come along side of us in prayer. Some ways you can be praying for our family:
-For God's guidance - that God's voice will be loud to our ears and will guide any upcoming decisions
-For our birth mother - that she is safe and healthy and makes healthy choices for her baby
-For our future son or daughter - that the baby is healthy
-For timing - that we can navigate any upcoming delays or road bumps with grace and mercy - we are obviously very anxious to become parents

With the large financial expenses we are enduring we are doing some fundraising over the next several months. Would you prayerfully consider making a donation to our adoption fund? We also would appreciate your willingness to share this with others who may want to help.

Thank you so much for your love and support during this time. We are so blessed to have you all walk through this journey with us.

With love,

Eric & Michelle
