We Are Adopting!

Mario & Cynthia
Mario & Cynthia LA, California

We have BIG news… we’re adopting a child!

This has been a long time coming for us, almost 15 years to be exact. One of our greatest desires is to be parents to a child of our own. We are beyond excited to share our journey with you.

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 $50,000 or more. That is why we set our goal of $35,000 to help with the financial lift that often overwhelms adoptive parents.

We have been awarded $7000 in matching grants from Cheerful Giving Adoption Fund + Lifesong for Orphans. We want to make sure we give credit to our faithful private fund partners.  

We would love to invite you into this journey and hope you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows.

We know with all certainty that we are meant to be parents. We have so much love to give and are entirely dedicated to following this path of adoption.

Thank you so much for your time and support. God bless you!

Hello Family and Friends,

Waiting is one of the hardest things to do in life. In particular when you don’t know what the outcome will be. Right now, as we wait to adopt, we will trust God with our journey. Please keep praying for us and thank you for donating to our dream.
