We are adopting a child! Yay...our adventure awaits...We are adopting a baby!
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.
We are Dustin and Brittany. We met in high school and have been together for over 15 years (Almost half our lives!) and have always known that we wanted children, but are unable to have them. Watching as a child learns about new things, discovers their passions and becomes an amazing person has always been something we wanted to experience. We definitely had our glimpses of this; Dustin teaches and coaches high school students; Brittany’s passion for children lead her to a career as a photographer, where she spends hours playing with children to create one-of-a-kind lasting memories. We currently have two four-legged children (Pippa and Pippin, which we call the Pips), who are the sweetest, yet quirkiest dogs in the world. If how we love our dogs is any indication of how we will love our children, that love will be unmeasurable.
