The Barkley Adoption Story

Josh Barkley
Josh Barkley Cary, North Carolina
Hi! We are Josh, Brandy, and Amelia Jane, and we are in the process of adopting a baby. We have been led to adoption throughout our marriage and we are walking through the process daily. We can’t wait to be matched and meet our sweet, brave birth mama and eventually meet our baby! Our desire is to love and care for a child or sibling set and birth momma through adopting. We are excited to partner with Faithful Adoption Consultants to connect us with a birth mom and our future child(ren).
 
 
One of the things most adoptive parents do to prepare to be placed with a birth mama and baby is find creative ways to cover the many costs involved. The total cost of our adoption will be between $30,000 and $55,000.
 
 
We’re working hard to cover as many of these expenses on our own as we can. We have been awarded $10,000 in matching grants from Harvest Church + Lifesong for Orphans.
 
 
-PRAYERS: This is by far the most effective way you can support us! We know so many people are praying for us, for our birth mama, and for our baby. It means the world to us to be supported in this way.

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 “Barkley 09982”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, 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.
  • *3.5% fee for donations given with an American Express card
