We have BIG news! The Graves are adopting!
We have been married for 10 years, and have had many adventures
together. We have lived in other countries, and traveled all over the world. We have walked the path of
infertility for the last 5 years and have clearly felt God guide and
direct us to our greatest adventure ever: WE ARE ADOPTING! :)
Ephesians 1:5 says "In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will."
We are so excited to see how God is going to continue to stretch and grow us as we walk this path He has set out for us. Our story doesn't look like we thought it would, but we are so thankful that He works together for our good and to bring Him glory.
We are pursuing domestic infant adoption and have finished our application and education classes. We are in the Home Study process with our agency - Bethany Christian Services.
ask that above all you please partner with us in PRAYING. We ask that
you would pray for us, for our future baby, for the birth mother who
will be making this sacrifice, and for all involved in this process
which is hard and messy and beautiful.
Second, we ask that you consider partnering with us financially as we step forward in obedience to pursue growing our family through adoption. The cost of a domestic infant adoption is over $26,000. While we are prepared to sacrifice and are saving towards this, we also hope to partner with many of you and can't wait to see how God works through this process.
If you have any questions or want to know more about our story, please don't hesitate to ask. We thank each of you for your role in our journey and in Baby Graves journey! <3
