We have been so encouraged by all of the kind words from our friends and family since we announced that we were adopting! We are so thankful! I've had multiple friends offer to help me with fundraisers and I've been offered a whole wardrobe of little girl clothes, in case baby Mabry is a girl. If there's one thing that our home is lacking, it's pink and sparkly things! I am in the process of putting together a support letter and a mailing list to help us raise the funds necessary to adopt. Sometimes I get overwhelmed thinking of what we need to raise, but I know that God has called us to adopt and He will provide. Trusting can just be hard sometimes. When I am finished with our letter, I'll update our blog and start putting a mailing list together! Please remember us in your prayers. Pray for the little life that God has planned to join our family, and pray for us to trust in Him!
PS- Right now, the most common question I'm getting about our adoption is pertaining baby Mabry's gender. I wanted to fill y'all in on who baby Mabry could be. We filled out in our application that we wanted to adopt a boy or girl, of any race, that was in the age group of newborn-2 years. We also said that we are accepting of a multiple birth or sibling group in that age range. So, we'll see what God does with that!
