Steve and I want to share something with our "family" and ask for your support in prayer and in fellowship which I will explain shortly. The majority of you know the “story” of our blended family. Steve had Connor, I brought Morgan and together we were blessed with Peyton and now our little Paxton. Most of you are also aware that Morgan's biological “father” has been nonexistent for the past 5 years and very sporadic even before that. Steve is, has been and forever will be her Dad. We are a family unit and I couldn't be more thankful for that. The one thing that is keeping our situation from its “happily ever after”—and from giving us closure—is the fact that Morgan's last name is different from the rest of ours.
So....to bring everyone up to date, many months ago we met with an attorney to begin proceedings on a step-parent adoption. I walked away with reassurance that this was possible and actually could be a done deal in 3-4 months. We were hoping to have all this done by Christmas but because of the hefty retainer of $3,000 that was not possible. We continued to pray about it and knew that God would let us know when the right time was. This meeting also brought on a little anxiety because, without going into specific details, Morgan's "biological person" is a very mean, destructive human being and if possible would do anything in his power to make my life miserable. But we plan to proceed nonetheless, and this is where we would like for you to play a big part. Jersey Mike's is teaming up with us and providing an awesome ministry. They are allowing us to have a fundraising day at their store in Nippers Corner on Sunday, June 23rd and they are donating 15% of the total sales to us for Morgan's adoption! We are super excited for this opportunity that God has placed in front of us. Your support, love, prayers and a hungry appetite are what we need the most! We pray that there are no bumps in the road, and that this goes smoothly and quickly. We are trusting that God will guide us through this process, both financially and emotionally, but we need all of your prayers and support as well to make it through this situation. Each of you is important to me and my family, and I thank you in advance for your prayers.
With love & blessings,
Heather & Steve Ulrey
