If this is the first time you’ve joined us here on our blog, hello!
We’re Jonathan and Amanda Teixeira. We are in our seventh year as missionaries with FOCUS – The Fellowship of Catholic University Students, our third year of marriage, and in the adoption process for our first child.
This post is a quick update on our adoption journey. For those of you hungry for the details, check out Amanda’s post.
We posted about our plan to adopt about a month and a half ago. It’s been a wild ride since then. A lot has happened, but the most exciting news is that Baby Teixeira has been found and is due…
Now is when we need your help the most.
We need to raise the money to pay the adoption fees for our agency and the agency in California where Baby Tex is, as well as all the other related fees and costs.
We won’t know the final total until it’s all over, but we need at least $13,000 to move through the home study process and on to the next step. The agencies told us this $13,000 is due ASAP. It’s our goal to raise it by Friday, August 22 – The Feast of the Queenship of Mary.
Here’s where you come in.
We’re fundraising through PayPal by “selling” pieces to a puzzle we’ll hang in the baby’s room, and your name will be on the back of the pieces you buy, showing Baby Tex how much they’re loved. (More details on the puzzle here)
