are you prepared?

(JS) We're only a couple weeks into the adoption process and we're already seeing warning signs. The first one came in the form of an email we received yesterday.
"we just want to be sure your family is prepared to take on the expenses of the adoption process which can come up rather quickly."
We certainly appreciate the gentle reminder.

First, let me start by saying that every adoption packet that we received prior to going on this journey indicated the inordinate amount of money it takes to adopt a child from another country. We're fully aware of how much it costs. And you know what? We're still here.

Oh, and you know what else? Adopting was not my idea. It was part of His plan. So, do we have that money now? Nope. Will we?

  1. I can't wait to follow your journey! I am a Friend of Amy M.. My husband and I started both of our adoption journeys right where you are. GOD called us and we knew HE would provide a way to the money. Our 1st Daughter is from Viet Nam and we started that process with only $1000. We are now at the begining of our journey to our SN daughter in China and we are at about $3000 raised right now.

  2. Jessica,

    Thank you so much for your note. It has been so encouraging to hear of other families that are on the same journey with us. Each financial hurdle is providing our God with a huge opportunity to reveal Himself, a give us another reason to have faith! God bless you and your husband! Thank you for stopping by...
