Yes, you just read that correctly! The post we have been seemingly waiting forever to post, we can now officially post. We are going to be parents to three children under the age of three years old! Woohoo! It will definitely be an adventure, that is for sure. We know you all have questions and we are going to do our best to answer so here we go:
How long have you known?
We have actually known for a little over 3 weeks, but for various reasons, we weren't able to tell until now. So if in the last 3 weeks you have asked us, we have lied! :) Sorry about that. You truly wouldn't believe how many people just happened to ask us these past weeks and it was so hard to keep our mouths shut!
When is the baby due?
End of March
Do you know if it's a boy or girl?
Yes we do, but just as we never found out with our girls, we have chosen to not tell with this baby until he/she is here.
What race is the baby?
We are going to save that story for later.
Where is the baby from?
How much is it going to cost?
Between $18,000-$19,000 plus travel fees.
Do you have the money financially to adopt?
No, we don't! We will find out soon on how much our Micah Fund grant is giving us, so we will have more of an idea of how much we will need. The rest is all up to God. When we were first called with a match, we were extremely excited, yet also nervous as to how the funds will come together. However, over the last few weeks, God has shown us His faithfulness and His power in providing. We know that He will provide.
Do you have any specific prayer requests?
Yes. Please pray first and foremost for our birthmom R. That she would have peace and direction in this decision. We cannot even begin to imagine the range of emotions she is experiencing and we know that it would be extremely hard. Second of all, pray for ALL things to come together smoothly. Money, travel plans, Meridian sleeping, Zoelle adapting, etc. We just are asking for a supernatural prayer over this adoption.
We will definitely keep you all updated as we go along so keep checking here for updates!
