I had a huge announcement for you yesterday. But, the Mr. and I had a all day marathon, deep hearted, emotionally draining, discussion about every possible aspect and detail, and have decided that right now is not the time to start the adoption process.

Maybe one day, God will bless us with a tiny human to care for and raise as our own, but now isn't the right time. There are so many moving parts in our lives right now, that I think we wouldn't be able to fully enjoy everything a child would bring. I know that most folks that can have their children naturally sometimes don't get the luxury of choosing when it's the right time for a child. I understand that. The way I see it, God took away my choice of that, for reasons I'll never understand. So, now that I do have all the time in the world to really position ourselves correctly before getting a child, why not take advantage of that?

So, that's why I switched my sponsorship to paid only, because the money from the sponsorship was going into an adoption fund. Now, I feel like the money needs to go straight to charity. Why not give back something if at all possible, right?

I will offer a guest post, or highlight of someone for a day on my page, in exchange for putting my button on your blog, for those who want a free option of sponsorship from me. Otherwise, it will be the paid option.

OR, if you have any ideas, please email me! I love meeting and working with new people! Check out my Sponsor tab at the top!


  1. I'm sure that wasn't an easy decision to make, Jessy. I am praying that when the time is right, you will be blessed with that tiny human. God knows when that will be. Until then, enjoy each moment with your hubby. ♥

  2. That is very brave of you to make the tough decision. So many people think a baby will solve problems and make them happy. Very strong wise choice. You will know when it is your time.


  3. i imagine that had to be such a tough decision to make! but i think you are right when you say that you do have the opportunity to fully prepare before having a child & it's awesome you guys are taking advantage of it! :)

  4. Aww Jessy! This just tugs at my heart. I'm praying that God will provide and give direction on everything. When I'm up to posting regularly I will love to sponsor you. Have you thought of allowing proceeds to go towards other parents hoping to adopt? I know a few and it'd would probably be a great ministry to step into.

  5. Such a difficult decision to make, I'm so sorry. Stay strong! God has your best interests at heart, and faith in Him includes faith in His timing. Praying for you & your family!
