Every Sunday I share with you guys something I love. Today's thing that I love? Adoption.
Remember a few weeks ago when I posted our newest adoption update? I told you that I would let you know what we decided to do and then never mentioned it to you again? Well, I'm not forgetful, we simply didn't have any answers until this past week. So, here is the follow up from that post:
Our family is currently on the waiting list for both Ghana and Uganda. Each one has their own delays going on at the moment & we are simply waiting to see which door God will open first.
Ghana has plenty of children that qualify for adoption, but there is a new ban prohibiting both domestic & international adoption. Hopefully this will be lifted quickly.
Uganda has children as well, but there are some delays in getting paperwork in order for the waiting children. Also, some of the children's homes have had to take a break from adoptions due to some various issues.
And so we wait...
I would love your prayers that the process would start moving forward and that the remainder of the funds needed to adopt would come in.
Today, I wanted to let you know about an opportunity to help another family fund their adoption from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Allyson from All Our Days is opening up an Etsy shop. She is making downloadable digital prints for the home and this month 50% of sales in June will go to fund Lauren Mill's adoption.
Lauren is a mama to three kiddos and her husband is a youth pastor. International adoption is very expensive and this is a great way to help fund them. You can read about their adoption journey here.
