Our Story
Donors (36)
We're coming down to (what we hope will be!) the last expenses of our adoption of twin boys from Central Africa! We've been blessed by an extraordinary amount of money through grants, t-shirt sales, and contributions from friends, family, and strangers. Because of recent delays and changes to the adoption process, these funds are close to running out. Simply put, we had planned and fundraised well for the money we thought we would need, but God had something different in mind.

What we will still need to pay for includes the invaluable foster care, food, and medical checks the boys receive on a monthly basis, last-minute plane tickets there and back, and several weeks of in-country living expenses. We estimate these remaining expenses to be approximately $10,000.

We know many of you have already given, and we have zero expectations of more. We have been asked, though, if there are still ways to support us without buying a t-shirt. All money donated via this site is tax deductible and will go directly to our remaining adoption expenses. We are grateful for every single bit.

"I saw your drive on Chrome Buffalo when I was buying a shirt for another adoption. I went to your blog, and it took like a second to realize I love y'all already! I want to support you guys on this journey through prayer and a bit of monetary help (a drop in the bucket, but every bit helps!). God's plan is vast, and our minds are small. He has his hand in every bit of this process, so fear not! :)"
