And I know that You will be Blessed

6 Jan

Today’s post stems from a wonderful meeting we had with a sweet lady last night and her family. She’s a woman who has chosen us to parent her son. We are feeling confident in her decision to go through with placement but we know nothing is guaranteed at this point. Now that that’s aside here’s our deal…we really got our eyes opened to how fast this is happening. She is due in 5 weeks but probably won’t be able to make it that long (read here maybe 2 weeks longer). It has always been our goal to not need a loan for the adoption, however when He-wood lost his job last June we needed our savings, my job, and his 2 part-time jobs to stay afloat.

This is where the community of Christ and his church comes in. We hate asking for money but Lifesong has been so gracious to allow donations to be accepted through them with a tax deductible gift for the donor. He-wood has proclaimed Philippians 4:19 “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus”. We have seen God provide for us this past year and look forward to seeing him work this out because to God $12,500 isn’t much. But to me it’s a mountain…it’s something that right now is keeping me from being able to fully minister to this lady and her family. We’ve got the love…we’ve got the means to care for him and crib and everything we just need the money for lawyers and our agency.

So if you would like to donate you have 2 options:

Check: write preference Arrowood #2439 Adoption on the note line

Lifesong for Orphans Attn: Arrowood #2439 Adoption

PO Box 40 / 202 N. Ford St.

Gridley, IL 61744

Or donations can be taken online here: Please remember to designate in the purpose line preference Arrowood #2439 Adoption

We are just needing some financial assistance as we try and obey James 1:27. Can you help bear our burden? Any donation helps and we are eternally grateful.
