Mike and Aerika Adopt

Aerika Katip
Aerika Katip Huntington, Indiana

We are Mike and Aerika Katip. We own a house in Huntington, Indiana and both work in Fort Wayne. Mike is a Marketing Specialist and Aerika is a Social Worker. We have been married a little over two years now. Our adoption journey began in January 2021 when Aerika found out she could not have biological children. God has led us on our journey and continues to provide. A domestic adoption averages between $30,000 and $50,000. We are hoping to raise $40,000 to help our family grow! Raise the Dough has offered us a $6,000 matching grant! We pray that you are willing to give to help us match this wonderful gift!!


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 “Katip 09520”, 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.
