Adopting Baby Mango

Kait & Jonathan
Kait & Jonathan McCordsville, Indiana

Family and Friends--it is surreal that you are even reading our story, really. We have been talking about adoption since our first date! And years later, we are on the brink of becoming parents. God has taught us a lot since then, about family, about His hospitality and provision, and about navigating the bittersweet gift of adoption.

We have completed the paperwork, been home study approved, and our profile is active for expectant moms to view. It's all up to timing, now! While we wait, we are praying and trusting God with our finances necessary to make our adoption happen.

Talking about money can be uncomfortable. We are "savers" by nature and have been able to invest well into our adoption up to this point. But we need help! While we are prepared to add a child to our family, the cost of adoption is more than $30,000. We are excited to announce that we have been awarded a matching grant through Lifesong for Orphans provided by Hands of Hope! The first $3,000 donated to our adoption fund will be M A T C H E D by Hands of Hope as we work toward our fundraising goal of $10,000.

Would you consider being a part of our story and contributing to our financial goal? We are humbled by your continued encouragement, support, and prayers. And we're grateful you are a part of our community!


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 “Mangano 08656”, 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.

  • In following IRS guidelines, your donation is to Lifesong for Orphans. This organization retains full discretion over its use, but intends to honor the donor’s suggested use.
  • Lifesong is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Individual donations of $50 or more and yearly donations totaling $250 or more will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Receipts for donations under $50 will gladly be sent upon request.

“Our lives have been forever changed and blessed by adoption. God wrote our story long before we were even ready to open the book. Our family of 4 has enjoyed your adoption journey and we pray for you, your baby and the birthfamily who chooses you. We love you both dearly and already love the baby who will make your dreams of parenthood a reality. ❤”

“We're praising God in advance for this little one that will be added to your family and blessed to be part of your journey! "But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!"~Habakkuk 2:3”
