November is National Adoption Month. Many people consider adopting, but think they can't afford it. Don't let money be the only obstacle that is keeping you from adopting. If God wants your family to adopt, He will provide the finances for your adoption! If everyone waited until they could afford it, 90% of people who have adopted would probably never have adopted! Most people don't have thousands of dollars in the bank to pay for an adoption, but somehow they adopt anyway.
We are one of those couples without thousands of dollars in our bank account. My husband is in grad school and can only work about 30 hours a week. I lost my job last spring and now work two part time jobs. We probably "can't afford it." But we are adopting anyway. We are trusting God to provide the finances. (This whole adoption process is strengthening my faith! It is so amazing to watch how God is providing for our adoption!) I said all that to say this "If we can adopt, so can you!"
If you are considering adoption, but don't think you can afford it. Give adoption another thought. Read Rebekah's blog post on how they adopted and God provided. Read Nancy's blog post on the sacrifices they made in order to adopt.
Stay tuned! Through out the month of November I will be giving a shout to out different fundraising and grant organizations that could help your family adopt!
