We've Been Matched with a Child!

Today we received the amazing news that we have been matched with a child to adopt!  Last week we presented our profile to a birthmother carrying a little girl.  We have been waiting and praying for the past week and today we received the news that the birthmother chose us to adopt her child.  The baby's due date is February 15th.  We are so surprised, humbled, and excited all at the same time.  It is awesome to see the Lord orchestrating things for our good and His glory!

The next step for us is to begin the paperwork process with the agency and start figuring out the logistics to be able to bring Baby Reece home.  The cost of the adoption is still going to be a hurtle for us and we are praying for the funding to continue to be provided.  The first phase of the adoption costs actually have to be paid next week and we are not exactly sure where they are going to come from.  Please continue to pray with us for provision for the finances and the wisdom to prepare for a new addition to our family.  Please also pray for the birth mother to remain steadfast in her decision and to have a healthy remainder of her pregnancy.  

We have been given 2 matching grants from wonderful non-profit organizations.  If you would like to give and help us bring home baby Reece, you can make a tax deductible gift to either of the two organizations below:

1)  Hand in Hand Christian Adoption Inc.
     Landrum Family Adoption  (only put our name on the outside envelope not on memo line of the check)

     Gardner KS 66030

2)  Lifesong for Orphans
     PO Box 40/202 N. Ford Street
     Gridley, IL 61744
     **PLEASE put Landrum Adoption #2402 in the Memo line

We are excited and waiting to see what God is going to do in and through us and Reece.
Thank you for partnering with us!
