The family and friends of Jordan and Sharla uniting to raise money to help them adopt their first child!

Please read if you love Jordan and Sharla, or love adoption!

For those of you who don't know me or my Husband Josh, we are long-time friends of Jordan and Sharla. We were in each others' weddings 5 1/2 years ago and have been together through many ups, downs, trips, adventures, states and now long-distance friendship. Anyone who has had the privledge of knowing Jordan and Sharla knows they are amazing friends!

What you might not know yet is that they have been trying to grow their family for several years now without success. The emotional roller coaster of infertility is well known to them. They have now decided through much prayer and consideradion to pursue a child through another beautiful route, adoption. They are pursuing domestic adoption. The most recent projected cost they have received from their adoption agency is $25,000-$40,0000. If you guys are like us, you don't have that much extra money just sitting in the bank collecting dust.

I just wanted to let anyone reading this know what led me to set this site up for them. I have been walking with them throughout this long, lonely, discouraging, and now hopeful journey, as I know many of you have also. I know a lot of you feel like I do, wondering what you can do to show them how much you love them, care about them and support them in this beautiful decision to adopt. I have prayed for them, thought about making a quilt for their future child and shared encouraging words with them among other things. All these are wonderful, needed things, but I wanted to show them in a tangible, self-sacrificial way how valuable they are to me and how much I already love and care for their future child!

Neither Jordan or Sharla, or anyone else asked me to set this site up. This is simply a humble request from one friend who loves Jordan and Sharla to another friend who loves them. If this is you, please prayerfully consider joining this truly incredible story of a beautiful child, created in Gods very image, being united with the loving parents God has created for him or her.

Please feel no pressure to give out of guilt or obligation. This is really a celebration in advance of God's provision in giving loving parents to a priceless child, and a celebration of God's provision in beautifully answering Jordan and Sharlas' prayer for a child to love!

Some of you may only have an extra $5 to give, please know that is of exceeding value! Some may have $20 or $100. Some may have more. Any gift is perfect and I speak for Jordan and Sharla in saying they appreciate every penny! Thank you for reading this and for joining me in celebrating our friends Jordan and Sharla and their precious future child!

I just wanted to say a few things about giving on this site. My dad has instilled in me an obsessive caution about using a credit card online. I just wanted to let you guys know this company is legit. They are accredited with the Better Business Bureau, having received an A- rating. The minus is just because they have only been a company for 3 1/2 years. They have recieved 0 complaints with the BBB since they've been members. You are also able to pay with paypal. You can check out all the details about how everything works on the home page at www.giveforward.com. Thanks!
