Off They Go!!

It feels surreal to say that our applications have been mailed!! Applications were sent to 3 different agencies. We have worked so hard to get to this point! The "waiting" stage is finally upon us. This is not a fun stage to be in but we actually feel like we can kind of take a breather now.

At this point we will be hearing about different expectant mom situations and decide if we want to "present" to them. "Presenting" involves allowing the birth mom to view our profile and see if we are the family she wants to raise her baby. As you can imagine, this is heart wrenching with each new presentation. However, we know God is good and He has the perfect situation for us. All we need to do is wait on Him.

Our next big step is fundraising. We have already begun with a shirt sale. Please let me know if you are interested. Email ( or facebook with what size and design you want and let me know if you will send the $30 via paypal or a check (we can provide our address through private message).

We also plan to do a garage sale on August 15th. My sister gave us a bunch of stuff to sell and we have some furniture as well as small kitchen appliances. 

In August we will have the big auction! We can't wait to see how it turns out. My amazing childhood friend, Sarah, is putting it ALL together! What a blessing she is!!!!

Anyways, that is the happenings as of late. Thank you all for supporting us as we journey towards Baby Suppe!

Home Study and Profile Books

Hey everyone!!

We are super excited to update you all and let you know that the home study was approved and finalized at the beginning of the month!! We now have those in hand. Our awesome consultant, Casey, finished our profile books and we will be getting those printed this coming week. Things are really moving along.
The next step includes sending our information to the agencies we have selected and waiting to receive cases from them. They will let us know of potential matches and we will reply and let them know if we want to be presented as a perspective family. The mother then looks through the profile books of us and several other families and picks one.
This is the part of the process that we have no control over. However, We truly feel like we are where God wants us to be so we are pretty calm and patiently waiting.
Thanks for all the support you guys have given!!! If you want to support us financially, we have set up a gofundme account. You can also email, text or Facebook message us if you would rather just have our address.

We love you all!
