Some of you know we have felt called and direct by God to adopt a “fatherless” child into our family. We are adopting a little girl from China, and will be matched with a specific child hopefully in the next few months, then travel to China to bring her home (she’ll be around 9 months-2 years old). As a family, we’re excited and have been praying for her.
Some of you are probably wondering what has prompted us to adopt. Well, primarily, we’ve felt so clearly directed by God to adopt that we want to obey Him, and we also desire to give an orphan child a family that she probably won’t otherwise have.
The biggest challenge for us is not opening our hearts and home to another child, but it is in finding the fiancés to make this happen. We estimate our total cost for adoption fees, document preparation, home study, airfare, travel, attorney fees, etc to be $35,000. This is money we don’t have, but we know God is faithful and is leading us to trust Him.
Thank you for investing in our God Dream through prayer and finances- it will be an investment with an eternal return! (Matthew 6:20) We’ll give you an update with a picture and details as we receive them. Please pray this entire process will glorify God and fulfill His purposes!
