About this Fundraiser

My name if Jeremy. I'm the dad.
My wife is Jennifer. She's the mom.

We are adopting from Burundi!

About us:
  • We have 6 amazing kids. Sebastian, Brady, Aeriah, Jenna, Teagan, and Kaden. 2 married, 2 in college, and 2 at home. Plus 3 beautiful granddaughters.
  • We live on a small farm in West Plains, Missouri.
  • I love to bbq, work in our garden, and watch my kids sing, play football, run track, play drums... basically everything.
  • Jennifer loves her chickens, her kids, and her husband. Not necessarily in that order.
  • Movie night with a big tray of vegetables and fruit is our favorite time together.
  • Jennifer and I both volunteer with the youth at our church (Genesis Church) on Wednesday nights.

We have always known we would/should adopt.

We are addicted to kids. We have known from the beginning of our marriage that we would adopt.

A couple years ago we decided to adopt from Ethiopia. I was volunteering with a few different organizations there and fell in love with the people and the culture.

We had just started our home study when Jennifer was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. We got scared and just stopped. We didn't know what to expect. Turns out, with medication, we've got a handle on this thing. So, after a couple years to get over the initial shock, we are ready to begin our adoption journey again. Currently, it can take many years to adopt form Ethiopia and it gets longer every year. This is one of the reasons for the focus on Burundi. I still LOVE Ethiopia. I am dedicated to going back every year and working with amazing organizations like I Pour Life and Carry 117.

Why Burundi?

Less than one-third of Burundi’s population has enough food to eat throughout the year. As a result, nearly 60% of Burundi’s population is chronically malnourished.

Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world. Poverty is widespread: 90–95 percent of the population living on less than $2 per day.

The country has been ravished by disease and a 12-year-long civil war leaving more than 680,000 children orphaned.

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. This is why we have set a goal of $20,000 to help ease the financial burden that often overwhelms adoptive parents.

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.

Thank you for visiting our page. I hope you will consider donating to our campaign and be confident your investment will directly impact a child in need.
