We have BIG news!
We are adopting a child!
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 up a fundraiser 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.
In 2017 we were blessed enough to be able to welcome our adopted son Grayson into our lives and we were beyond excited. Our lives have changed in ways that we never could have imagined. Thru our fertility issues we found that it was not in God's plans to bless us with biological children so we started looking at adoption. It was not something that we had originally considered but after considering all the options we decided that it was more important to us to start a family then it was to actually be pregnant. So, that is when our journey began. At first when we were going to adopt we decided to start thru the foster system since there were so many children that had been neglected. After months of trying to add to our family a miracle happened. Within a week we were notified of a baby, interviewed with the biological mom; she chose us and we were parents to an amazing 1 1/2 month old little boy!
Although we are beyond happy to have one son we feel like we could make a difference in the life of another child as well. So we are on the next journey of our life to expand our family. The paper work is completed and now we just wait until we have a "match"...it could happen anytime so now we sit patiently!!
We are beyond grateful for all of the family and friends that are supporting us in our life's adventure, and thank you for reading our profile
