Operation Adoption Part Deux

Christie's adoption story is one that is very dear to me. She's a local bloggy friend, that is doing EVERYTHING possible to bring a sweet little girl home to be apart of her loving family.

God has already shown himself in a HUGE way concerning their finances, so I wanted her to come and share her updated story with you!

I would also ask, that at the end of reading this, you would prayerfully consider giving even just $5 to help out. It's just another way to help someone in need.







A month ago we received a phone call saying that we'd been chosen by a young birth mother in Florida.   Chosen for what?  To adopt her baby!  A story that started on January 10 from a simple Facebook message has turned our world upside down, for the greater!  For the full story and our adoption announcement, please visit here.

A few weeks ago our adoption agency gave us 15 days to come up with the first $10,000 needed for our precious baby girl's adoption.  To say that we were not prepared for this is an understatement!  As you read in our adoption announcement, we were waiting on fertility results the day that my friend contacted me.  So, to need $10,000 in such a short amount of time was a bit overwhelming.  But, the Lord soon laid an idea on my heart -- Operation 10:10:1 {10 Days: $10: 1 Baby Girl}!


I knew that friends and family were just as overwhelmed with the cost of adoption as I was and I figured, let's just chip away $10 at a time!  

In 10 days we raised $10,019....what an awesome God we serve!

In addition to fundraising we've sold our own things and cut down on our spending.  We are committed to doing all that we can to bring our baby girl home.  We've almost met our next goal of $6,100 but we're fervently in prayer for the final $17,000 we will need when our little girl is born around April 6.

Currently, we are doing online auctions to help raise funds and we continue to believe that the Lord will provide every bit of what we need to accomplish His will for our lives.

So, will you join us today as we seek to be obedient to the call that the Lord has on our lives?  We knew when we said, "Yes", that this was so much bigger than ourselves.  But, we knew that the body of Christ was big enough to accomplish it!

We are so thankful for any size donation that you'd like to give and we assure you that every bit of it will go towards loving a little baby girl for life!
