Hello Everyone! 

We are so excited to announce that we are in the process of adopting! This has been a dream in our hearts for a while and we feel like God has released us to pursue it. About a year ago we felt like God extended an invitation to us to experience His heart for orphans and adoption. The Bible makes it so clear how much adoption is in the heart of the Father. Ephesians 1:4-5 is one example that has been sticking out to us. It talks about us being chosen and adopted in God's family as sons and daughters. The word "chosen" really has been highlighted to us. We are all chosen by God to be His sons and daughters. This child that we will bring into our family is chosen by God and chosen by us!  

Through prayer, we feel like God has directed us to do Domestic Infant Adoption. The cost of this type of adoption is around $24,000. This is not paid in one lump sum but is payed in different increments throughout the process. The 2 main parts are: getting through the home study process(around $10,000) and after placement and finalization (around $14,000). We feel honored and priviledged that God has extended this invitation to us!  It is also exciting to us that we cannot do this all by ourselves. At the end of this process we will not be able to say that we accomplished it but that God through His people accomplished it! We ask that you would pray about coming along side us in making a difference in a child's life! Thank you for taking the time to read this. We love you all and are grateful for you!

In the Waiting.
May 8, 2018, 5:27 pm

Hi Everyone, 
We know it's been a little while since we last posted an update. Since we are home study approved we are now in the waiting period. We are waiting for birth parents or a birth mom to choose us! We have no idea how long this part of the process will be. In the last couple months since becoming home study approved we have applied for a couple different grants....six to be exact:) Most of them take a little while to hear back from but we have a meeting with a local church that offers grants this week! Please be praying for us that we would have favor in this process. 

We actually just had a mom look at our profile yesterday but received word this morning that she is considering a different family. I have found myself sometimes thinking "I don't want to get my hopes up because it will hurt too much if it is another no" but God has been speaking to me this week about hope and how it is ALWAYS good to have your hopes high. Because hope does not disappoint! (Romans 5:5) Without hope, you can't dream. If hope is gone, you can't believe or have faith. So we will continue in the waiting with our hope sky high!

Love, 
Brandon & Tammy

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! We seriously cannot say thank you enough to everyone who has prayed for us, gave to us and come along side of us. We only need about $2000 more dollars to pay the $7500 fee!  We received our profile books and took them into the office today so we are so close to moving on to the next step. Once again we are incredibly grateful for you all!

 

HOME STUDY APPROVED!
January 29, 2018, 4:59 pm

Hi! We have posted an update video on our Facebook but in case you haven't been able to watch that we are OFFICALLY HOME STUDY APPROVED!!! This is such a big step forward in this process. Our profile book (the book about our family that they will show to birth parents) is also finished, ordered and on its way. We need to pay a $7500.00 fee to be able to move on to the next step which is our profile book being shown to birth parents.  THANK YOU so much to everyone who has prayed for us and given to help us bring our child home. We are so incredibly grateful. 

Update #2
January 2, 2018, 9:14 pm

Hi Everyone!  Another little update...we have had 2 home study visits now.  And our last visit will be this Friday, Jan 5th.  The home study visits have gone well so far.  A lot of intense, good questions about us, our past and where we are at now.  After our home study is approved, they will begin showing our profile book to expectant moms who are choosing adoption! Thank you for your prayers and support as we continue on this journey.

Update #1
December 12, 2017, 10:15 pm

Hi Everyone!  Just wanted to give you a little update.  We are starting our home study.  Our first visit is Dec 18th! We are so excited to begin this process.  We have been given some money through other sources so as that happens we will adjust our overall goal to compensate. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us and given towards us bringing our child home!  We love you all!
