John Carroll gives this helpful perspective on funding an adoption:
If I wasn’t raising the money for this adoption, I would probably be trying to figure out a way to buy this truck. It has a decal on the door that needs to be removed, but other than that…I think it is awesome. (My wife says I have wine taste on a beer budget. The truth is we have never paid more than $5000 for a car!)
Here is the deal though, God has led Ashleigh and I on another Adoption Adventure, so before I could ever dream of making that purchase, I have a few adoption fees I need to get taken care of first.
And even if I had the money for that car, I wouldn’t buy it because I have already been ruined with pictures and photos of Abigail. I wish I could post a photo of Abigail on the internet so you could all see, but her beautiful face is so much more desirable than this truck. I am not sure I would have said that a few years ago, but God has truly grown my heart.
Don’t get me wrong, I wish I could still afford this truck, but we just invested our life savings into the first half of our adoption fees. Would you consider helping us with the other half?
