We have BIG news!
We've been chosen by a potential birthmother!
After only 5 weeks...5 WEEKS as an active family, we've been chosen for the honor of bringing home a precious baby GIRL! We are over the moon about this match and can't wait to travel to meet her and her Mama in the next few weeks. Crazy as it seems we've been told to be ready to travel as soon as possible. They seem to think this little girl may come well before her July 30 due date!
So how can you help?
We've been asked this several times in the last few days. Here are the best ways:
- 1. Puzzle Fundraiser: Due to the haste of the match, we've been able to gather a good chunk of the funding but not all of it. We just didn't have the time to get to all of the fundraisers we had planned like a benefit concert and a service project! If you'd like to be involved in getting this little girl home, contribute to this fund. AdopTogether is a 501(c)(3) so all donations are tax deductible and you will receive a receipt at the end of the year from them. We've purchased a blank puzzle that we intend to write the names of everyone who contributes on and hang it in the nursery. This will be our family's reminder as to the incredible generosity that allowed us to bring this baby home. All contributions are welcome and GREATLY APPRECIATED.
- 2. Baby Registry: While we have most things from Grayden's birth there are a few things we still need. Here's a link to our Amazon registry with the few items on there if you feel so compelled.
- 3. Prayer: Seriously this is the greatest thing you can do. Adoption is hard for both baby and Mama. Please be in prayer for all parties involved as there is such happiness and sorrow throughout this entire process.
- 4. Share Our Story: If you'd be willing to share this link and our story on your page that would be the kindest thing ever. Adoption is hard, one of the toughest things we've ever done but so rewarding. Please feel free to share our story on your social media platforms and with friends and family. That alone is helpful.
Thank you so much for all of your support as we go through this process. We will keep you updated as we go and know that we are beyond grateful for each and every one of you!
