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 $20,000 or more. This is why we have set a goal of $3,000 to help ease the financial burden that often overwhelms adoptive parents. Because we have been saving for several years and have enough to cover the remaining adoption fees, we are fundraising $3,000 to donate to the Birth Mother's Fund through catholic Social Services of Montana. Birth families do not receive any money when they make an adoption plan; however, if they need assistance with paying rent, buying groceries or needing money for gas, the adoption agency will provide them with gift cards to help fill their needs.
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.
