Let's get started with our family of the week, shall we? The Seifert family have just very recently accepted their referral for a baby boy from the DRC. That referral fee is a whopper, y'all! Can we help them recover from that?
Here's a word from Carly:
We began our adoption journey after two miscarriages and two years of failed attempts at getting pregnant. We were dreading the long wait for a referral following our home study, but also realized we could use the time to save our money and had several fundraisers planned in the fall to help us fund our adoption. Then, just three weeks after our home study was completed, we received a referral for a beautiful baby boy in the DRC! We are scrambling this weekend to secure loans to make up the gap between hat we have saved/fundraised so far and what we owe so that we can send the funds next week and not lose any time with him. We know we have many other large fees ahead of us, but we trust that God will provide for us and for our little boy, and take care of him when we cannot.
Well, we all know that God will provide, indeed. But He doesn't generally make money fall from the sky (though it would be cool if He did). No, we know that we are the hands and feet and wallets. Let's see what we can do to help them in their journey to give a sweet baby a home.
