Here at the Brunelle family, God has made it abundantly clear that we are to become parents through adoption. This shouldn't shock most of you as adoption has been a part of our story for a long time now. Rachael's father is adopted, and the two of us have journeyed with him as he found his biological family over the past few years.
We. Love. Adoption. The Bible tells us that "In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will." Ephesians 1:5 To sum it up...we're all adopted into the Kingdom of heaven.
We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome Baby Brunelle into our home. As part of our adoption process, we have set up a place to accept donations for those who would like to contribute to the financial burden this can bring. It may surprise you to hear that U.S adoption related costs can easily total up to $35,000 or more. We would love any support you could give.
We know that God has called us to be parents of a child in need of home. Many of our friends and family have expressed interest in coming along side us through this journey. We do not expect anything at all, but we feel grateful that you would consider walking alongside of us in this piece of adoption.
We serve a God "who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen." -Ephesians 3:20
