We have BIG news! As many of you know we are adopting a child from Colombia!
We have now identified a child who we are pursuing to adopt and we hope will be a part of our family soon! He’s the sweetest little 2 year old boy with a big smile. We aren’t allowed to share any pictures until the adoption is final so you’ll just have to believe 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 our adoption related costs will likely total $42,000. We have spent $10,228 of our own money already and easily have about $31,000 left. We need to raise $7,650 in the next month in order to send in our dossier. This is why we have set a goal of $20,000 to help bridge the gap in finances. As we received a referral much earlier than anticipated we truly need your help in order to bring this sweet little boy into our family.
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 hope that you feel comfortable asking us any questions about our adoption and the ways we have been preparing.
