We have been overwhelmed with the response and kind feedback to our post “We will adopt your baby”. Over 20,000 views have occurred in the first 36 hours. Thank you everyone for sharing. Please keep sharing and help us find who needs our support, help and love.
Here are some responses to questions that we have been receiving.
Will you help a woman who is not considering abortion?
Of course! I guess you could say that she has considered it and decided that it is not an option. We are looking to lighten the distress and burden of any woman who finds herself in grief and stress at having discovered an unintended pregnancy. We can offer relief, love and resources to her and to her baby.
Will you adopt a non-white baby?
Yes, we will help and love anyone and be happy to raise any baby who needs a loving home and devoted parents. Brigham and I both speak Spanish and Brigham speaks French if that is helpful information to anyone.
Will you adopt a baby with a problem or disability?
Absolutely. EVERY life is of infinite worth to God and to us. We are not afraid of challenges and trust that if God has invited us to do this, that he will strengthen us to handle any possible situation. In fact, my experience has been that it is in the challenges and sacrifices and overcoming in life that make us strong and the blessings roll forth. We will love and serve any birth mom and baby in any situation.
Will you support the birth mother?
Yes, we would open our home to her if needed, provide as many resources as possible to help her maintain privacy, confidentiality and safety.
Will you cover medical costs?
Yes of course.
Why are you doing this when you already have 7 children. Don’t you think you should let the couples with no children and infertility struggles have the chance to adopt rather than you with so many?
Our intent in reaching out to help a birth mother and baby, is certainly not meant to harm another couple. We do not intend to join any adoption agency lists or to “compete” with a profile against other couples. Rather, we feel directly commanded by God to consecrate our lives to another human being who may be in need of our help. (read our story HERE). So in faith and obedience, we are just putting this out to the world, trusting that if God commanded it, he will provide the connection and bring the right mother and baby into our lives. I know that there are MANY women who are not considering adoption right now, rather, they are planning on abortion. I am hopeful that our words will help many consider having the courage to endure the 9 months of pregnancy to then let another couple like us or many others in the world who would be willing to raise the baby for the rest of eternity. Let’s encourage more mothers to give birth and build a bridge to another mother rather than choosing abortion. Our intent is to help.
