Well y'all, we've finally made a decision and a "start date". In August, we plan to move forward, full speed ahead, on the adoption front. Woohoo! We've spent the last few days filling in our family on all the details and we're scared and excited all at once. We're going to spend the summer trying to stash some cash and at least have a good chunk of the funding to start with. We're calling this our Esther Moment. You know, Esther (Esther 4:12-14) had a choice - she could risk her life and save her people, or do nothing and watch them perish. The choice was equal parts scary/ risky and the potential for something beautiful. And that's exactly where we are. We know that adoption is risky and scary and beautiful. We know that it has the potential to be messy. But I'd much rather take the risk of the mess than to sit back and miss out on what God has for us.
And so, with that, we've had to get creative with funding. We're going to utilize my photography business as a major tool in the funding process. Every penny from any photo session I book will go straight into the adoption fund (just picture me holding a sign, "Will Work for Baby"). So it's a win win - clients are getting photos while simultaneously helping us complete our family and bring our baby home! I really love the idea. And my goal is to book 50 sessions, which really isn't that crazy. BUT I do need lots of word of mouth help. So if you (or anyone you know in GA) want more details on booking a session, then please CLICK HERE. Please please please share with anyone you know. If you've been following along here for any length of time, then you know that we've been in this baby battle for over 10 years. It's time. We're putting our faith into action and know that God will make a way. He is able friends. He is faithful. He already knows the baby He has for us. More than anything we want this to be a story of God's glory and faithfulness. And YOU can be a part of all of that. So please, spread the word. Let's take some pictures and get this party started!
