Adoption Matching Grant

As many of you know, we are pursuing another adoption and this time for a little girl who we hope to name Hannah. All the paperwork has been completed and the homestudy is finished so now we just sit back and wait for that wonderful call that says, "We found you a baby!". I can't wait to get it and even now I answer every unknown number with a hope that it is "The Call".

Right now we are spending all of our time and energy into fundraising because as everyone knows adoption isn't cheap. But it is sooooo worth it. Our old church in Carrollton, TX, The Ridge, has partnered with Lifesong for Orphans and generously offered us a matching grant of $1000. Our goal for the remainder of the year is to raise the full $1000 and then have them match it for us. This will bring our total adoption account to nearly $5000 and well on our way to our agency's fee of $8000.

Thank you for all the support you have given us whether it be prayers, encouragement, money, time, or baby supplies. We could not do this alone and it is so fun doing it alongside all of you. People talk about Hannah all the time and she is already softening hearts and she's not even here yet. I can't wait for y'all to meet her. I can't wait for me to meet her. I'm dying inside with anticipation.
