Help make this family complete
Thank you so much to all who helped share this post and to those of you that may have donated!
I have had a heart for adoption ever since I was a child and now it has become even nearer and dearer to me. One of my best friends from high school and her husband will be adding to their family through adoption!
Here is a little about them and their special situation.
Just in case you haven’t met us or heard our story yet, our names are Ben and Kendra and our family is growing. Our very girly family of four (thanks to our two little princesses) is about to have a prince! We are nearing the final stages of adopting a 13-year-old boy – a teenager! Yikes!
Ben is a fifth grade teacher and Kendra has stayed at home with our two daughters for the past seven years. Our situation is unique, as we have known the child we are adopting for over four years now – he was actually a student of Ben’s when we first met him! We’ve been hoping to adopt him since that year he was a fifth grader. Now, thanks to diligent preparation and lots of faithful prayer, the time has come for him to join our family. We are truly blessed to see our family grow in this way. And our daughters, ages 7 and 3, are so very excited to have a new big brother!
As you may know, private adoptions come at a price. Although our son’s care was initially overseen by the foster system, he has not been a part of that system for over a year now. Therefore, as his adoptive family, we are not eligible for any financial assistance from the state. Many friends and family members have suggested that we host a fundraiser to help defray the numerous costs, and to that end, we have decided to host a donation page. Please know that your support is greatly, greatly appreciated!
I would greatly appreciate it if you could donate to this family and help them welcome their son into their family. No donation is too small. If each of my readers were to donate only $1.00 we could help them raise a quarter of their goal. You do not need PayPal to make a donation (You can use Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Bank, and Discover as well as PayPal).
Please prayerfully consider donating to help make this family complete.
I would also appreciate it if you could help me share this post through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets. Share buttons can be found at the bottom of this post.
