I need your help! Many of you may know that we are in the process of trying to adopt our second child. We have already been richly blessed through the miracle of adoption. When we adopted our son Elijah, we kept things really private. In fact, we didn't really tell anyone about our adoption plan. Before his adoption, I felt at peace. I knew that if we were prepared, everything would just fall into place. That's exactly what happened, we got our paperwork in order and things quickly fell into place exactly like they needed to. After he was born, we were showered with love and support from friends and family. Thank you!
This time around I feel a greater urgency to tell the world that we are searching for the next addition to our family. This week I started thinking about what I would do if Elijah was lost. How far would I go to find him? Would I keep the matter private, or would I tell the world? Well the answer to that question is easy. I would be telling everyone and anyone who would listen. I would ask for help and prayers and volunteers to go out and bring him back to us. My son Elijah is not lost; he is safe and secure in our home. I know that another special spirit is meant to join our family. As a mother, I feel helpless because I don't know how to find this precious little one. Our child may live in our town, or thousands of miles away. They may already be born, or not yet conceived. The one thing I do know is that this determined little spirit has asked me to try harder. They've whispered into my heart telling me that I need to get busy and tell the world. I don't want to fail! I don't want to miss out on the opportunity to have this amazing child join our family just because I didn't ask for help.
So this is me, asking for help. "How can I help?" you may ask. Well, there are a number of things you can do. 1.) PRAY. I believe in the power of prayer. Please pray for all the expectant mothers who have a tough decisions to make. Pray that they will have the support they seek and the courage they need. Pray that we will have patience in the process. Pray that we will be led down the path that leads to our child. 2.) Share this message with others. I'd feel honored if you took the time to share my message with your friends. If you know someone who is interested in adoption, please share our adoption blog with them. matt-karen.blogspot.com 3.) Donate to our adoption fund. If you can spare a dollar, we appreciate it. If not, we thank you for your love and prayers.
