Help Bring A Baby Boy Home to His FOREVER Family!

Our friends Matt and Sarah found out they leave in NINE days to meet their baby boy in Taiwan and bring him home! Merry Christmas Habudas! God rocks! Just yesterday I was praying for them - that Levi would be in their arms by Christmas and he will be! Only God!

Here's the deal...since they are having to book plane tickets on such short notice and right before Christmas, the price has skyrocketed. They are several thousand dollars short and need to book the tickets NOW!

Please, please consider making a donation to their adoption fund and help them bring their sweet boy home! What a Merry Christmas this will be for Matt, Sarah and Levi.

Here's all the details strait from Sarah:

We are still in complete shock over the idea that in about 9 days (216 hours...12,960 minutes!!!!) we will be on a plane heading to meet our son Levi.

The child of our heart.

God is SO faithful.

We've seen Him work in every aspect of our adoption journey. He has guided, provided, and directed us every step of the way. Our family story is full of miracles.

And now, just days before we leave, we're trusting Him for another miracle.

Over the past year and a half we have saved, planned, and fundraised to pay for the adoption expenses. International adoption is expensive. Crazy expensive. But, we knew that this was the calling God had placed on our family and we knew that He would provide.

And He Did.

We are so incredibly thankful to our friends and family, and even strangers, who have prayed for us, encouraged us, and supported us financially. We would have never been able to do it without you. We can't wait to tell Levi about the amazing village of people who gave so freely and sacrificially in order to bring him home. What an amazing testimony of pure love.

We believed that we had saved and raised enough money to pay for our adoption...until now.

We knew we would have to buy 2 last minute international plane tickets.

We had budgeted for that. It wasn't a surprise.

BUT we had no way of knowing that we would be blessed to bring Levi home right before Christmas...and we had no idea that the price of of tickets would SKY ROCKET due to the holidays.

Because we have to be in Taiwan the week of Christmas we are now short several thousand dollars.

We don't have the time to create an elaborate fundraiser or to come up with a super creative idea to make that much money. We need to buy the tickets immediately. So we are humbling ourselves and asking for help.

Would you consider helping us bring our son home? Anything would help make a difference. Would you pray for us? Would you pray that God would move mightily in this situation? Would you share our story and need with others?

This is incredibly hard for Matt and I to do, but we know and trust that He will provide. We're humbled and forever grateful to each of you.
