We got the phone call yesterday evening, saying we had been selected by a precious birthmother, whom we'd had a phone conference with a few hours before! We are over-the-moon excited that a baby BOY will be joining our family on or around August 10th!
I will update the blog later with the full and wonderful story (to God be the glory!!!) but I wanted to post the news and share that we are in need of your prayers and help as we move forward. This adoption is right at the top of our price-range and, while we are thankful to have a few no-interest loans we can use right now, we have a long way to go to be able to pay for everything. We know that God will provide 100% for our needs and we are excited to see how He accomplishes, what in our eyes seems, such a daunting task.
Here are a few ways you can help today:
The "best" way to help is to make a tax-free donation to our Adopttogether account! This is a wonderful program where adopttogether can directly pay our adoption agency (we never handle the money) and you get a tax-free donation! Even if you can only donate a few dollars, it would be much appreciated in bringing our son home! Here is the link:
Another way you can help is to purchase a t-shirt through our Bonfire Funds fundraiser. These shirts are the same ones we did in a previous fundraiser and we love them. The quality is great. If you are ordering a Ladies Fit shirt please order up a size. Otherwise, please order your normal size. They are true to size other than the Ladies Fit. The kids shirts seem to run a bit big, but kids grow!! We receive a portion of the funds from the t-shirt sales.

More than anything we appreciate your prayers for us, our birth mother and our precious son! Thank you!
