The Gifts in Adoption Fundraising

Paying for an adoption is challenging.

From taking on a second job to hosting countless bake sales to sharing your story on social media until your fingers ache … adoption fundraising can feel neverending.

What if we flipped the script (just for a moment) and looked for the gifts to be found in the midst of it?

Here are two.

When adoption fundraising—

  1. we discover the power of community, the depth of human kindness, and the incredible ways God works through His people. Some of the most remarkable stories of God’s provision come from the adoption community.
  2. we reach a point that requires us to surrender control, trust God’s provision, and step out in faith even when the path ahead seems uncertain. If we let it, this season strengthens our walk with God.

Does this make adoption fundraising any easier? No; it’s still challenging.

Could we receive these gifts in other ways? Maybe. But for now—

Adoption fundraising is the tool God is using—not only to bring children into loving families, but also to transform the hearts of those who take the journey.

David and Greta, with their children, recently brought their daughter home from Korea.

Here’s what David and Greta had to say about adoption funding—

“The cost of adoption is overwhelming.

and kept us from entering the process for several years.

We finally just decided to take the leap of faith and trust God for the finances to be worked out as needed. We knew we would have to work hard outside of our full-time jobs to be able to raise the necessary funds to make it happen.

So when Lifesong came alongside us with the matching grant they offered us, it gave us a chance to breathe a little. It helped the money that friends and family gifted to us go further in the journey to bring our daughter home to us.

Through the process,

it’s hard to understand the timing of the journey.

The process speeds and slows and often doesn’t make sense. Now, we can look back on the experience and see how God’s hand was over us, since our daughter came to us at the very best time for our family.”

Praise God—even when the journey is hard—He always provides.
