We are the Glasgows! Jarrod, Mollie, Willow, Wren, and Pippa. We are in the process of adopting our son, Fox, from China. Adoption has always been something our family has been drawn to.
After the birth of our second daughter, Wren, who was born with Down Syndrome, we felt God specifically calling us to adopt a child with special needs.
We began the adoption process in November of 2015. At that time, we had a 7 month old baby, debt from medical bills, and zero extra room at our house. Crazy time to begin the adopting process huh!?! But we did not choose to adopt because the timing was perfect, or because we were financially prepared… we chose to adopt because God’s calling on our lives felt urgent. God was calling us to trust His plan for our family and join Him on an incredible and scary journey. We have had zero regret since saying yes to adoption.
Fox was brought into our lives through a crazy series of events. From the first time we saw his face and heard his story we felt God speaking to us that this child is so worthy of a family.
Fox was born with a complex heart condition and has had to fight so many battles, including two open heart surgeries, in his short two years of life. Never before have I known someone more worthy of love. More worthy to be loved. More worthy to have a family. More worthy to have someone fight for him. More worthy of happiness.
Fox is worthy of it all and we are going to do everything in our power to give him the life he deserves.
We are in the final stages of bringing Fox home (submitting Article 5 today!) – about a month from travel. And we are just $3300 away from being fully funded! We are selling shirts with a powerful message to help us raise the final funds we need.
Initially set to close on the 21st, we added a few days so everyone has a chance to order… and today is officially the last day to order! More Alike Than Different is available in short and long sleeve, in adult, youth, and toddler sizes; all orders will ship within two weeks (plenty of time for Christmas giving!). Visit here to see all the options.
We feel incredibly honored to be Fox’s forever family and so grateful to be on this journey. We cannot wait to bring him home!
