Y’all, I’m so excited to announce that we have been chosen as the “featured family” this week Give 1 Save 1’s blog. This is a such an honor and an amazing opportunity to raise the remaining funds we’ve been asking the Lord to provide before we travel next Wednesday. I had the delight of meeting one of the editors at an Usborne party. It was one of those moments you think “I know this person!” and spend the next little while going through your memory files to figure out how you know them. She started sharing about their family and love for adoption and it all came together. She’s on Give 1 Save 1! This adoption journey has been a sweet reminder of the family of God in the larger sense. So neat to meet this sister face to face! She encouraged me to apply to be a featured family and as typical I procrastinated…they graciously accepted us as a last minute family!
Let me introduce you to Give 1 Save 1. I like to think of them as a blog using social media to the glory of the Lord by helping families who are adopting. How do they accomplish this? Their “about page” will give you all the ins and outs but basically they are “mostly funding adoption for the people, by the people”. Each week they sponsor a family, spreading that family’s adoption story. They also ask folks to donate just $1. You see, when many folks give just $1, it adds up. Go like their Facebook page so you can learn what the Lord is doing in other families lives through adoption.
Many of you have already been sharing our story and so many of you have supported us financially as well! It’s hard to find the words to express the magnitude this has blessed us. In just 11 days we will meet our little one, face to face. We will give him/her a name and this whole amazing journey will begin a new chapter in our story. We started asking the Lord to provide $2000 before we travel in May. The Lord is faithful and we have received $1132 in donations towards our adoption since beginning that prayer.
If you’re visiting for the first time, hello and thanks for taking the time to get to know our family and our adoption story! You may want to check out “our story” page, the calling to this domestic adoption, and then some questions answered.
Will you share our story again this week? Will you consider being part of our week with Give 1 Save 1 and consider donating just $1 (you can use the donate link on the sidebar or below)? Will you pray with us that the Lord would use this week to provide the remaining $868?
