We have been talking about adoption since we got married in 2008. Over the last 9 years, we have had 3 biological children, moved overseas, come back, talked about adoption, lost our sweet 4th child before her birth at 18 weeks with Down Syndrome, and have felt God finally confirming the timing for us to pursue adoption. Because we have lived among the nations and felt particularly drawn to South Asians, India was a natural and exciting fit for us.
We have completed our home study and hope to be registering in India for a 2-4 year old girl with mild to correctable special needs - but we are open to God's leading! We will be waiting for our paperwork to be approved by the US government and when that comes back (probably around mid November) we will need to have raised $6500 to get registered as a prospective adoptive family in India. When we do get matched with a child, we will need $6000 at that time. This could be very quick, if our child is on the waiting child list.
So our fundraising goal is $12,500 by December 1st! We would love if you would prayerfully consider being a part of our adoption story. We can't wait to find out who God has in store for our family!
