Meet the Forbes

This month I am happy to announce that we are supporting Jacob and Allison Forbes as they begin growing their family through adoption.  

Allison reached out to me through a mutual friend, and here is what she had to say...
"During engagement and the early parts of our marriage, Jacob and I loved dreaming of our future together. We talked of adventures, shared hopes and dreams, and the desire to start a family someday. Adoption was always on our radar but we expected that we would have biological children first. In the midst of our fertility struggles, we talked more seriously about adoption and God shifted our hearts towards it more and more. I realized that my deep desire was to be a mother and that pregnancy wasn’t the only way for that to be possible. We prayed, had a lot of conversations, sought wise council and did a bunch of research and came to the decision to pursue adoption right now. We are excited about this opportunity and feel that adoption reflects the Gospel in a uniquely beautiful way. We are pursuing an infant, domestic adoption through Faithful Adoption Consultants. We are open to a little boy or girl and it will be so fun to see what God blesses us with! Through this whole process, we are seeking to trust the Lord fully with all of the pieces and we cling to the promises in these verses:
Psalm 37:3-7 "Trust in the Lord, and do good, dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your justice as the noonday. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him."

You can help this sweet couple by purchasing the "Delight yourself in The Lord" necklace pictured below.  

Half of the proceeds from this necklace will be donated to the Forbes to help with their remaining $10,000 in adoption fees.  Visit the shop to purchase yours and help support this family!
