Something special for future Baby Davis…

PUZZLEPICAs we begin fundraising we wanted to let you in on something special we have planned for future Baby Davis!  We have made the above image into a puzzle and will be writing the names of EVERYONE who helps us, no matter how big or small, on the back of a puzzle piece.  We will then frame the puzzle and put it in the nursery so that we are constantly reminded of all of the generous people who helped us make our dream of starting a family a reality!

Update on our progress!


So things are really heating up on the adoption front!  This week I sent off three applications to different agencies in Florida!!  I am still working on two lengthier applications and hope to have those in the mail SOON!



Now that we have applications out, things could move quickly so we will begin fundraising.  Our adoption will cost around $35,000-$40,000.  This includes application and agency fees, medical and living expenses for the birth mother, birth mother counseling, and legal fees to finalize our adoption.  We have some exciting things on the horizon for fundraising so keep checking back !  If you feel led to help check out this link: Want to help?  We know God will provide in INCREDIBLE ways that point directly to HIM so we continue to ask that join us as prayer partners on this journey.


Another new development on the fundraising front:  We will be working with AdoptTogether which is a project of Hoping Hearts Foundation, an IRS approved 501(c)(3) organization.  This means ALL donations made to our account through them are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!  You can read about their organization and check out our profile at AdoptTogether Profile Link

Where are we in the process?

We are knee deep in the paperwork step of this adoption process!  We have completed our Home Study and are currently filling out applications to multiple agencies here in the States.  We are hoping to adopt a child that is 0-12 months old which has led us to chose a domestic adoption.  We are working with an adoption consulting agency called Christian Adoption Consultants.  We have an amazing consultant who has helped us put together our adoption profile book and has also given us a list of recommended agencies to which we will apply.  CAC (Christian Adoption Consultants) has been such a blessing as they have helped us navigate the somewhat overwhelming adoption process.  With the help of our consultant we have chosen 3-5 agencies and hope to have our applications in within the next couple of weeks!

We will also begin fundraising soon to help cover some of the medical and legal fees associated with adoption.  There will be many opportunities to help contribute in the coming weeks if you feel led!  If you are interested in making a contribution you can click on this Want to help? link or access it from the main menu.  We have a PayPal account set up for donations and a separate bank account established, but will also be offering some other ways to get involved.  I will be putting together collegiate baskets with Handmade by Hope goodies to be raffled off (first raffle coming NEXT WEEK!).  Also, be on the look out for some custom furniture pieces built by J.D. himself!  I will be posting about these opportunities along with many more here on the blog and other social media outlets. Please feel free to share our blog/fundraising links on your social media 🙂   We know that God will provide for this adoption in ways we cannot even imagine, so more than anything we ask for your prayers during this adventure!
