Last November, we went to a meeting with Bethany Christian Services to learn about their domestic adoption program. Before attending the meeting, we had to fill out a "pre-application" in order to be invited to the meeting. The "pre-applicaton" was two pages of questons dealing with our faith in Christ. We have decided that we will start our adoption journey this coming September when we submit our formal application with Bethany.
In order to set aside money for our adoption, Kelley recently took on a second job and is now an Independent Consultant with Thirty-One Gifts. Money that she makes from being a Thirty-One consultant will go directly into our adoptin fund. She will continue teaching Kindergarten at Mary Daly, but once we’re parents, she’d like to stop teaching and be a stay-at-home mom, while still making a financial contribution to the family.
Please keep us in your prayers as we begin this process. We know that the adoption process can be unpredictable and trying at times, but we serve a faithful God and look forward to the day that He gives us a child to be part of our family.
