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!!
