Week 24 FUNdraising Friday Update

Well, it's been a bit of a slow week as far as krafts are concerned. We only brought in $185.31 to add to our adoption fund. But, any amount gets us closer, so we are always thankful for any amount we receive. What can you do? Continue to promote my krafts page ( If you need anything personalized or a gift that will stand out among the rest, I'm your girl! Thanks for thinking of me!

On the adoption front, we have our home study finished, we have everything paid for on the front end, and now we wait. We don't know how long, and that's totally ok. God knows. We pray for our expectant/birth mother all the time and for the baby that may or may not be in this world yet. We'd love it if you would pray for her and the baby whenever you think about it. We know God is listening and covets our prayers!

Things to pray for:

  • the health of the expectant/birth mother and the baby
  • support from close friends and family of the expectant/birth mother
  • that the expectant/birth mother would seek counsel from Bethany early on so they can help meet her needs
  • that the expectant/birth mother would hear a word from the Lord and feel a sense of peace and love
We know each and every time we look into our baby's face, we will remember the sacrifice this woman made, and we will love her for her decision each and every day.
