Baby McLain

Carley & Andy McLain
Carley & Andy McLain Dallas, Texas

We are so excited to be on the journey toward adoption! We have talked about adoption our whole relationship - since we started dating. We always thought adoption might be a part of our story but we weren't sure exactly when or how.

The Lord has used many people and things in our life to push us toward serious prayer regarding adoption and He has made it clear to us that this is what He has for us at this time! We are really thrilled to see what comes next for our family.

The main barrier we faced when deciding if/when we should adopt was the financial aspect. Adoption can be very expensive. Our total adoption costs will be around $40,000. We could NOT pull this off without the support of our family and friends. We feel extremely lucky to have people in our lives supporting us and encouraging us in this process.

The funds raised in this account will go directly to our adoption agency to fund our adoption. We are so insanely grateful for every single dollar and more importantly, every single prayer for our family in this process.

We are anxiously waiting to find out what tiny little human will be joining team McLain very soon! We are in love already, that is for sure.

 

Love,

Carley & Andy
