Many of our friends and family have asked about ways they could help through this process.
Number one, of course, is to pray for grace and patience to completely fill our days. Waiting on a little one is hard, and we've felt those prayers that are already being spoken on our behalf...THANK YOU!
This next option has been a tough one for us throughout this adoption journey: asking for help financially.
A friend who has been through the adoption process before mentioned to us that often times people would like to give financially, but are shy about it or don't feel comfortable 'just handing a check over'. We have now added a 'Donate' button on our blog that is linked to an account thats sole purpose is for adoption money. We have done so through Paypal, so rest easy that your information is kept secure and confidential. This has been an area that has been uncomfortable for us: this 'asking' of money. But, we know that probably more people than we know would like to help in whatever way they can. This process has proved time and time again for us that the cliche' phrase "it takes a village to raise a child" is truer than true. In our case, it takes a village to bring a child home.
Thank you for being a part of our village. It's a crazy-cool one. :)
