About this Fundraiser 

We have BIG news!

We are planning to adopt a child!

We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a beautiful boy into our home. As part of our adoption process, we are hosting an orphan for 4 weeks through a hosting organization, Host Orphans Worldwide. To do so comes with expenses so it was suggested to me that I start a crowdfunding campaign through Adopt Together. It may surprise you to hear that adoption related costs can easily total up to $35,000 or more. 

We have matched with a 9 year old boy from Ukraine named Roman . He will come to stay with us for 4 weeks in January 2020. He arrives January 23rd and will have to go back February 19th. We can then pursue adopting him. It is our hope that we can provide a better life for a child outside of orphanage walls. The statistics of what happens with these kids if they are not adopted is absolutely heart wrenching. I am happy to share that with you if you are curious. 

Oh and did I mention he looks more like Ben than his own kids do?!?!

So this will be step one in our adoption journey.

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 grows up.
