I don't have much to update on the actual adoption front. The birthmom that last looked at our profile ended up not going to her doctor's appointment, so the worker from our agency wasn't able to meet with her. The worker did ask her what she thought of our profile and she casually replied, "Oh, I haven't even really looked at it yet..." Sooo... haha! The agency said this might be another one that's the type to call once she's had the baby at the hospital. They think she will go through with her plan for adoption, but she's not really in a rush to make any decisions. They said we would get a call if she ever tells them anything concrete.
I do, however, have some news to share that I think is pretty exciting ! We have recently partnered up with a non-profit organization called Bleeding Hearts Ministries to help us raise money for our adoption. This is a great organization with a vision to "address the basic needs of children who are victims of social inequality."
Bleeding Hearts heard about our desire to adopt and thought that this process really fit into their personal mission plan. Their website kindly had this to say about us: "They are saving a child from an unknown future and bringing them into their home where they will encounter the love of Jesus and the transforming power of God."
So now we are in fundraising mode with this company! We have some events we are planning right now that are going to be really great. I will be sure to post the details when they're ready.
If you feel compelled at all to make a tax-deductible donation, please do so. Every little bit helps. Know that you are contributing to them helping other couples adopt in the future and also contributing to their goals of helping impoverished children in our community. You can go to their website here to make a donation and learn more about them. Also, please go to their Facebook page here and "like" them. That's something simple we can all do to help get their name out there and known.
If you can think of any other ways, please help me spread the word about this great, great organization. The dreams and goals they have for the future of children is simply beautiful. We are humbled and honored to be working with them.
