We have been through several adoption attempts that have fallen through. As with every adoption, this can happen time and again.

We have left it all in the Lord's hands. The Lord has done nothing but brought peace about us adopting.

Please pray for us.

Just to keep everyone in the loop, we are back to the fundraising part of our adoption. The lady who wanted us to adopt her baby ended up disappearing and the attorney we were working through suggested we don't chase her down.

Thank you to all who are keeping us in your prayers. Please continue to do so.

Adoption Update: A couple weeks ago, a birth mother reached out to my wife and I and asked us if we would be interested in adopting her baby. She is 4-5 months along. We wanted to be extra careful after experiencing two adoptions not working out.

So, this past Sunday afternoon, we met with the birth mother and discussed adoption preferences with her. We are mutually on board with everything! With that being said, our monetary need has drastically dropped because it's a targeted adoption and not through an agency. We've already spent a majority of our money on past agency fees, and home studies.

At this moment, we only lack $3,500 if the adoption goes through the way it currently is going! If it turns out that the birth mother will need assistance, we will have to go through our adoption attorney's agency. Then it can cost an additional $7,000–10,000 (still cheaper than a non-targeted adoption).

We have left it all in the Lord's hands. We even told the Lord that we were not going to reach out to the birth mother but would only REPLY to her reaching out. So far, the Lord has done nothing but brought peace about adopting. Please continue to pray.

Wanted to let everyone know that we will be looking into other adoption options as it seems to be that the twin adoption has fallen through. We thank you for your continued prayers.

The decision regarding the twins should be made this week. Please join us in prayer that the judge will decide in our favor. Otherwise, the boys will go into the foster system. Today is a crucial day of prayer. We thank you in advance for praying with us.

We are praying for God's will to be done. We know that God already has the baby that is meant for you out there. He will open that door for you when the time is right and if it is baby Jase then this is going to all work out. Keep the faith and prayers going, there is going to be a happy ending.

P.S. Target accounts with 10K followers minimum to increase chances of donations. I believe this is the best way to go and from what I've seen and heard on the crowdfunding scene - takes time but works well and very well in the end. Just gotta get the message out to as many people as possible. More people talking the more likely to achieve trending status and have heaps of people engage with the same conversation in the spirit of unity - something that this world certainly needs to be remind of for sure haha.

Hi Guys - Just a suggestion, hit the Twitter and strike up a conversation with related baby & adoption accounts and more - then ask them to spread the word of your campaign with link attached. It's good old fashioned word of mouth only digital and faster - YEAH!!! :)
