want to help?

If you haven't gotten a chance to read more about our adoption story, please click HERE. If you would like to help be a part of our adoption process, there are a few things you can do.

- Pray for our future daughter from SA and our future child in Ethiopia, for protection and health throughout this entire   process
-Pray for the special people who care for our children, so that they will have renewed joy each day as they do their jobs and give care to children.
-Pray for the court & embassy process ahead, that God would be glorified and that we would be able to move forward quickly to bring our children home. 
- Pray that we would remain patient throughout this entire process.
- Pray that the Lord will shape us in our preparation to be great parents.
- Pray that this adoption will be a clear picture of the Gospel to those around us.

Spread the Word
Tell people about our blog. Get them in contact with us. We would not be considering adoption if it were not for our friends who have shown us how adoption is a picture of what God has done for us. We hope that others will be stirred to care for orphans through our own adoption.

Give Financially
We have saved and worked hard so we could afford to begin this process.  It is indeed very expensive, but we are trusting in the Lord that he will provide the means to bring our children home. However, if you would like to help us fund this adoption there are a few ways that we have made that available.

1. Set up a Photography Session with Jessa Anderson Photography! All proceeds from each photography session will be going directly toward our adoption funds! Each session is a maximum of 1 hour including a disc of 50 fully edited photos. Click on Jessa Anderson Photography for more details!

2. Donate Flyer Miles! We will have to travel to South Africa for 6 weeks and Ethiopia twice during these adoptions. Any donation of Flyer miles would be a great help to us. Please email us at jessa.n.anderson@gmail.com if you are interested.

3. Buy Fair Trade Coffee!! If you know the Anderson's, you know WE LOVE COFFEE!! So we thought...what a great way to fundraise! And through a company called Just Love Coffee, we can do just that! Click HERE to go to our Just Love Coffee Roasters store!

4. Ascend For The View Marketplace on Etsy. As we journey through this process, we will be making items for sale on our Etsy shop - Ascend For The View! All items being sold will go toward the support of our adoption! Check out the store HERE

5. Donate through PureCharity! It's tax deductible! WAHOO! Click HERE to get THERE!

Please let us know if you need our mailing address by emailing us at jessa.n.anderson@gmail.com!
