Children have always been central to my life. I was a babysitter, children’s musical assistant, and nanny. I’m the oldest of 14 grandchildren, the aunt of 9, and a godmother. I’ve taught dance, art and Sunday school. Now I have the privilege of teaching elementary art everyday. While I do not know if marriage is in my future, I know I am ready to be a mamma. I believe God has lead me to this season in my life and called me to adopt.
It’s been a roller coaster ride getting to this point. I am excited that I have been matched, and my daughter will be born this fall! I’ve been doing lots of things to get ready: sewing, tutoring, nesting, and -you guessed it- applying for grants. Adoption is a calling and I know God will provide a way for whatever He’s asked of His own. But sometimes we have to put our pride aside and let Him work. The initial cost of adoption is staggering (40 – 50,000). It’s an awfully big speed bump to get over. So I’m here to asking for help.
My future daughter and I are so grateful you’ve thought about our family and taken time to stop here. If you decide to donate please know that we are beyond thankful; your help in our journey to become a family is incredible. Either way we wish you all the best.
