Successful Fundraising Month

When we started to look into adoption we were overwhelmed with the cost of adoption. We prayed and talked about it for months and finally took the leap of faith to adoption. We knew God was in control and he was guiding us to this decision. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about how bless we have been with our fundraising so far. I want to say again thank you to everyone that has supported us and prayed for is so far.
 
The Covered Bridge Festival was VERY successful and we were blessed to meet so many people! We had close to $1,000 in donations during those 10 days and I can’t even begin to tell you how appreciate we are for everyone’s generosity! We heard so many adoption stories and got lots of advice from people that have experienced adoption or knew something that has adopted.


A special thanks to Melissa Vest and everyone that helped me reach my goal in the KEEP Collective Fundraiser that was earlier this month. It was very successful and we raised $292.50 to help fund our adoption!


 

How you can be praying for us:

We are going to our first adoption workshop this Friday and Saturday! We are really hoping to be finished with everything & active (ready to be matched with a birth mother & baby) by the end of the year! We also have some important decisions to make concerning what we are comfortable with as far as levels of alcohol & drug exposure to our baby. These decisions are big & really hard to make. We would love for you to pray for God's wisdom & peace to cover us as we make these decisions & complete our remaining paperwork.
