We've applied!

We have taken our first official step, and completed our adoption contract. After lots of prayer we have decided to go with Bethany with their Colombia program. We have decided that we are open to adopting a child a bit older than preschool age, around early elementary age. There is also a possibility that we could adopt a child off the waiting list or a sibling group. We don't know where this journey will lead us, but we feel like this is the way that God is leading us. We are excited about pressing forward, and will be preparing for our home study in the next month. If anyone has any fundraising ideas for us please feel free to share! We have been saving my salary since the beginning of the year, so we have part of our funds raised, but we will start fundraising in earnest after our home study completed. Thanks for being part of our journey!

  1. Hey Allison! This is a very exciting adventure you are on. I just read a blog of a couple who adopted a 7 year old from America. I like the way she tells the story, and maybe somehow you can relate, so I thought I would share with you. http://kellyisnice.tumblr.com/post/45801928674/an-adoption-story-alice-lewis-and-the-fairly-odd
