We have BIG news!
We are adopting a child!
For those of you who know us personally you know the many things we have overcome to get to this point in our life. For those of you who may not know us as well, we have decided that adoption would be a wonderful blessing in our lives.
We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a beautiful new life into our home.
As part of our adoption process, we have started a crowdfunding campaign. It may surprise you to hear that adoption related costs can easily total up to $35,000 or more and insurance will not help like they would in the case of being able to give birth. This is why we have set a goal of $20,000 to help ease the financial burden that often overwhelms adoptive parents.
If you are curious as to the actual breakdown to what you would be helping us pay for, we would be more than happy to discuss that with you on a more personal basis such as messaging, in person, or phone. If you feel more comfortable without using the website, we can give you an address to send money to and we will put it in our adoption fund. After much research, we have chosen Adopt Together; because, we have learned that all monies donated by people receive a tax write off. In order to use the funds donated, we have to submit what the monies are going to and they verify with the adoption organization!
We hope, that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up. Still unsure? Ask us anything. We would love your help as we expand our family!
