Robus Adoption

Update: As many of you know our first match didn’t end as expected.  The baby boy is at home with mom as far as we know.  Please continue to pray for them both.  Adoption can be hard as we have seen.  We thank you for all your prayers, texts, phone calls and checking in over the past week.  You will never know how much each on meant!

We are continuing down the path of adoption as we feel God is leading us.

How can you help?

#1 PRAYER.   We need lots of prayers during this time.   Pray for the right timing, mother and child.  Pray that we follow God’s lead as we continue down this path.  Pray for our future travel and that it would all work out schedule wise.  Pray for the birth mother.  Pray that we can show the birth mom just a little sliver of God’s great love for her. Pray for strength for this brave woman making the difficult decision to give up her child. Pray for comfort and peace for her. Pray for a safe and healthy delivery and baby. Pray for our girls and the changes our family will be going through.   Pray for Leslie as she becomes a stay at home mom. Pray for all of us as we move forward as a family of 5!!  Pray that the love of Jesus be shown to all who have a part in this story.

#2 Financial support.  Adoptions are expensive; fees alone can easily be $40,000 or more.   It is a great injustice in this country that an adoption costs 100 times more than an abortion today.  While we have been able to save a great deal of the funds needed we could still use a little help.   We receive a portion of any of the items you buy on this site.  Especially take note of the custom shirt and now coffee mug we had designed “the truth is …  LOVE makes a family.”  If you are able we would love for you to purchase a shirt and send us a picture of you wearing it.  We plan to include the pictures in a book for our baby.  What a great gift that will be to show him or her all of our friends and family supporting before they were ever born!!!  There is also an option for your to just make a straight donation if you choose.

#3 – We also have a registry at Target as we are in need of lots of baby basics.  If you are local and have anything you don’t need any more feel free to let us know.

One more thing:  we want to thank those who have already reached out to us.  The love, support, and prayer we have already received has blown us away.  Thank you so much to those who have selflessly given of their time and resources to get us this far in our journey.   Thank you God for giving us this opportunity and for everything that has happened in our lives that has brought us here.   Thank you for taking the time to look at our fundraising site.

There are not enough words to express our gratitude for your support during this journey!

Stay tuned for more updates as well.

Updates

Well – we have some bad news.  The little boy that we thought we were getting is still with his mom in Texas.  It was and still is at time heartbreaking.  John and I are confident that God has laid out this path of adoption for our family and we will continue to follow Him.  We covet your prayers and are grateful for all the support.  We will continue to keep everyone updated as new info comes in!

First Post and Match

WOW!!!  Our adoption journey is moving very quickly.   We have matched with a mom that is pregnant with a little BOY in Texas just over a week ago and couldn’t be more excited.  We have a much shorter time line than expected now as well.  Delivery is currently planned for Feb. 9th at the latest!!!   We will be traveling to Texas shortly to spend some time with her and then wait for the birth of our boy!  B.O.Y. Just sounds different coming from this house of girls.   After the birth we must stay in Texas until our son is cleared to cross state lines.  This could be anywhere from a week to 2 weeks after his birth.


So, how can you help?


#1 PRAYER.   We need lots of prayers during this time.   Pray for Leslie and John as we travel and meet our son’s birth mother.  Pray that we can show her just a little sliver of God’s great love for her. Pray for strength for this brave woman making the difficult decision to give up her child. Pray for comfort and peace for her. Pray for a safe and healthy delivery and baby. Pray for our girls and Leslie’s family who will be watching them while we are away.   Pray for Leslie as she becomes a stay at home mom. Pray for all of us as we move forward as a family of 5!!  Pray that the love of Jesus be shown to all who have a part in this story.


#2 Financial support.  Adoptions are expensive; fees alone can easily be $40,000 or more.   It is a great injustice in this country that an adoption costs 100 times more than an abortion today.  While we have been able to save a great deal of the funds needed we could still use a little help.   We receive a portion of any of the items you buy on this site.  Especially take note of the custom shirt we had designed “the truth is …  LOVE makes a family.”  If you are able we would love for you to purchase a shirt and send us a picture of you wearing it.  We plan to include the pictures in a book for our boy.  What a great gift that will be to show him all of our friends and family supporting him before he was even born!!!   We also have a registry at target we are in need of lots of baby basics.  Especially BOY stuff, no pink or ruffles for this guy.   If you are local and have anything you don’t need any more feel free to let us know.   Lastly there is a link here for you to make a donation if you choose.  Any and all support is greatly appreciated.


Additionally we want to thank those who have already reached out to us.  The love, support, and prayer we have already received has blown us away.  Thank you so much to those who have selflessly given of their time and resources to get us this far in our journey.   Thank you God for giving us this opportunity and for everything that has happened in our lives that has brought us here.   Thank you for taking the time to look at our fundraising site.
