Adoption is a tough road. It is time-consuming, emotionally exhausting, tedious and expensive. But we believe that the challenge of adoption is good for us, and so worth it. The process is already leading to more prayer, more trust and more reliance on God and others.
We estimate that our adoption will take about a year and a half to two years and will cost about $35,000. We can’t cover this ourselves, and yet we feel strongly that God is calling us to proceed in faith. A few months ago, as we discussed our desire to adopt, we agreed that the only reason to not adopt was the money. We believe strongly that God is calling us to to adopt, but we personally can’t afford it. And so we believe that he is calling us to step out in faith and trust that he who calls us will supply for us what we need.
We plan to work hard, fundraise, continue saving up, apply for loans and adoption grants and do all we can to keep gathering the funds we need. And we ask you, our family and friends to consider supporting us in our adoption journey. God may not be calling you to adopt, but you still may be able to make a difference in the life of a child by supporting an adoption.
