From Derek and Emily: Hi everyone! In October we started the domestic adoption process and then in May we found out we were matched with a birth mom from Indiana. Ivy Kate was born on June 20th! Through the process and all the uncertainties, we repeat these words, “To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus, all the glory evermore to Him.” We’re grateful to you all for your love, prayers and support! Please pray:
1. For the birthmoms healing, that she would come to know Christ, that we would be a support to her and for a growing relationship.
2. That the transition to a family of 6 would go smoothly as we bond with baby girl and bring her home.
From the Open Hearts Open Homes Team: BCC's Open Hearts, Open Homes ministry exists to glorify God as we equip the local church to care for orphans, foster children, and at-risk children and support the families who are ministering to them. God is doing great things in our midst! We want to enthusiastically recommend the Vollmers to you as participants in this ministry. Their heart for the Lord and heart for the orphan are truly on display for all to see. Please pray for the requests above, and please consider giving toward this incredible opportunity to help the orphan. The cost for this adoption is right at $60,000. We are so thankful for the body of Christ, and we know how much prayer and giving has blessed past families. Thank you for considering this.
