Hi! We are Jon & Jenn and many of you have been along for the ride these past nearly 6 years of our adoption journey. Adoption is a long road that would have been impossible to walk without your love, encouragement, and support, and we are grateful!
When our second daughter Charlotte was just about 4 months old and we were still having social worker visits, I jokingly mentioned that I could do this again, you know, have another newborn right now! Jon said,”I’ve actually been thinking the same thing.” WHAT?
During our next social worker’s visit, we asked how long we have to wait until we began a third adoption process, so here we are now. We are currently pursuing our THIRD open domestic infant adoption through Bethany Christian Services.
We are incredibly blessed to have been awarded a matching grant of $4,000 from Lifesong for Orphans Adoption Fund! That means that when you so generously give to our adoption fund, it will be matched up to $4,000. As you know, adoption is expensive and is a tremendous financial burden. Your donation will go toward post placement visits from our social worker, supportive counseling for birth parents, services at the hospital, helping us navigate open relationships with birth parents, and preparing for finalization of adoption and court hearings.
We can’t wait to add another little one to our family, to tell them the story of how YOU helped to bring him or her home. You are a part of our story, our journey, and we are so thrilled to have you along for the ride.
STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction). Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”. In the memo line please write “Sato 08942”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40, Gridley, IL 61744.
Lifesong has been blessed with partners who underwrite all U.S. administrative and fundraising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.
