Well, actually the whole process from now can take from a year up to 30 months. We're praying for much sooner than later! International Adoption from Uganda is a very new process, and it's always changing. Right now, those changes are making the process longer. Overall, this will be a lengthy, stressful process with many ups and downs. And we won't be able to do it without YOU!
So how can you help?
1. PRAY! PRAY! PRAY! Pray that this process will go quickly and efficiently- that we won't hit any big roadblocks along the way. Pray that we will be able to raise all the funds that we need to raise. And most of all, pray for our little son or daughter. Whether he or she is born yet or not, we are praying that God leads us to the right kid and keeps that kid safe until we can bring him or her home.
2. I mentioned raising funds. Well the whole process will cost over $25,000. And as shocking as it may be, we don't really that kind of dough sitting around. It almost seems like some crazy number that can't be real or achievable. But we know God has called us to adopt, and God will not call you to things that He will not also equip you to fulfill. He will provide for us. We will do multiple fund-raisers over the next year and are going to try to be creative on how we raise those funds. We hope you will support us and spread the word when we have those, but also if you feel led to give to our adoption fund at any point, you can click the fancy "donate" button on the right. Every little bit will help.
Thank you for your prayers and support and for walking along side us throughout the journey ahead.
