We have begun the process of adopting a baby.
We are both excited and terrified in this prospect, but after wrestling through hundreds of hours of prayer and discussion, we feel that this is not only what God is asking us to do with our lives, but also what we are asking Him to do in our lives. Whew - Can we ask for your prayers as we surrender our hearts to this journey? After losing our only child to cancer, we're afraid to risk loving again. We wonder if in our mid-forties, we have the strength and stamina to keep up with a little one's needs. We know we don't have the thousands of dollars to cover the cost of adopting a domestic infant. But, we also miss being parents and would be tickled pink to snuggle a baby again. So, we're taking the leap...knowing that if God doesn't show up, we're not going to get very far.
Ok, so we're fundraising.
That's awkward isn't it?
The truth of the matter is, it really does take a village...we can't do this without some help. Our loved ones who don't live nearby have asked that we set up an online way for them to help support us, so we've investigated options:
#1. If you want to help us build our family, but don’t wish to have a tax deduction, this page is a wonderful way to do that by just clicking the donate button below.
#2. If you would prefer to send a check, please print out this form, adding your information. All donations made this way will be tax-deductible. Please make checks payable to "livingWATERS Church". In the memo line, write "R.O.C.K. Ministries". Mail the form and check to:
10609 165th St. West
Lakeville, MN 55044
We're so humbled that you care. We covet your prayers and encouragment along this journey. Your support means more than we can say.
