The Lord has been doing great things in our family. One of those things involves looking forward to being a grandma! Our oldest son and his lovely wife have been in the process of adopting for several months now. All of their preliminary legal work has been done. Last week, they were told that they are now on the match list.
If you would like to learn more of their story, you can click here for their adoption journey facebook page. They have been telling their story of how they met and eventually married. I have enjoyed learning some more of that story myself!
As you can imagine, adopting can be quite costly. They are facing their first financial deadline with the agency the end of April. They are presently running a puzzle fundraiser. For every $10 donation, your name is written on the back of a puzzle piece. The puzzle will eventually be framed as a memento for all the people who helped to bring their baby home.
I have never used this blog to ask for money. I have been asked how to help and this seemed the easiest way to let everyone know. If you would like to have your name added to the puzzle, you can give through gofundme or through Venmo to Melton Family Adoption Fund. Anonymous donors are also added to the puzzle as ‘Anonymous.’
More important than your financial aid is your prayer support. We would greatly appreciate your prayers for our son and his wife and for all of us as a family. We eagerly wait to see what God has in store for us in the days ahead.
