Young family adoption raffles: Introduction to the Cause

Dear Friends and Family,
We write to you today on behalf of our sister and brother, Neil and Jill Young. Some of you might know, and others may not, that Neil and Jill have recently begun the journey of adopting a child. They have chosen an agency based in Oklahoma City called Deaconess Pregnancy and Adoption Services. Neil and Jill's hearts desire to be parents again.
After years of struggling with infertility, God has led them to adoption. They both believe that this is the means by which God will expand their family. However, the financial cost of adoption is great ($20,000.00+) and all the money is simply not there at this time. They believe that God's desire for them is to pursue adoption, but they need the help of friends and family in order for this to come to fruition. They have decided to act in obedience to God and trust Him to provide for every need.
Here is one way that you can help! Please consider donating any amount to help offset some of the cost of their adoption.
We want to thank each of you for your willingness to participate! Whether you know and love Neil and Jill, have a heart for adoption, know the pain of infertility, WE ARE SO GRATEFUL.
Thank you so much,
Bryan & Sara Wise, and Addison Grace (Jill's sister and Neil's sister and brother-in-law, and their niece)
Michael & Lauren Wells (Jill's sister and Neil's sister and brother-in-law)
Ran & Heather Whitnah (Jill's brother and Neil's brother and sister-in-law)

We're the Wells family. We currently consist of Michael (husband and daddy), Lauren (wife and mama), Evangeline (daughter and princess), and Samuel (son and prince). We live a pretty simple life loving the many blessings that God grants us each and every day.
Mike is a genius carpenter/contractor and works throughout neighboring counties. Lauren stays at home with Eva and Sam most of the time, but works a few days a week as a therapist.
More than anything else, we love being together as a family- trips to the gardens, swimming at Grammie and Papa's house, and bike rides & walks are probably our most frequent activities. We're surrounded by our family (siblings and parents); they all live within 30 minutes of us!
That's us in a nut shell.
We're thankful you dropped by our site!
