We found out a few days ago that our birthmom will be induced on August 3rd, if the baby doesn't make his appearance before that date! Both birthmama and baby are looking healthy, so that is a huge praise too! It looks like we will be meeting our little boy even sooner than we were imagining!
Also, another huge blessing is that there is another FAC family who graciously hosts adoptive families in their area while they are waiting on ICPC to travel and they have offered to have us stay with them for part, if not all, of our time in Utah. This is a huge blessing, as hotel bills can mount up quickly! If we could only have to pay for a rental car while we were there, that would be so amazing!
I forgot to mention in our last post that we were able to do a small yard sale over the 4th of July weekend and made $200 to add to our savings for travel expenses. We've also been blessed to be accepted to participate in a "Both Hands" Fundraiser--I'll share more about that in another post but you can watch this video of another family's project to get an idea of how neat it is! We'll be doing our project after baby is home in the Fall! Both Hands Project Video
We've also raised $3,550 through our Adopttogether account! We can't even begin to express how humbled and thankful we are! If anyone else would like to make a tax-free donation, you can do so here: Johnson Family Adopttogether Account
Please continue to pray for our birthmama and our sweet baby boy! Pray for us as we organize travel and arrangements for the girls! Pray that we can love our birthmom big and be the hands and feet of Christ to her! Thank you!
