First, we want to say “Thank You” to everyone who gave towards our adoption fundraiser. We have raised almost the whole amount! Amazing! The baby we hope to adopt in the future will be possible because of your sacrifice. We do not take any of this lightly and it has been such a humbling experience to fundraise. Thank you again.
Many of you knew that we were contacted about three months ago to consider a baby boy who was due on Thanksgiving Day. We were one of three families that matched with Erica. It has been a very interesting three months waiting to hear since her due date is so close. Today, we found out that Erica chose another family that has no children of their own yet. That’s ok! God is going to place the right baby into our family and we can move on with that peace of mind.
In that same conversation we were asked to consider another birth mother that will be due sometime in 2012. We don’t know any details except that this little baby will be African American. We will not know anything else till sometime in January.
We will be sure to keep you all updated! Thank you for praying for us!
Lots of love,
Mark Kristin Malachi and Canaan
