Elton may have the opportunity to have a biological sibling join the family and Desmond could not be more excited !
Unfortunately, in the world of private adoption there are no special allowances or considerations for keeping biological siblings together. It is strictly about the first family to be a “match”, gets the match.
Fortunately we have been preparing for another baby via foster care. The house was set up in preparation for a new baby that we were not blessed to be a forever family to. This is not the first time our hearts have been broken in this way as many of you know.
Though we know and are living proof that biological bonds do not define family, the opportunity to raise Elton with a close sibling from his same lovely first mama would be a life-long blessing to all of us.
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 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.
