We have awesome news!
We are adopting a child!
We are so excited about this opportunity and are working hard to prepare ourselves to start this new adventure. Having a family and sharing our love and values with a child has always been important to us. When we were unsuccessful in having a biological child after three years of infertility treatments, we started looking into adoption as a way to grow our family. We believe this is what we are being called to do and cannot wait to welcome a baby into our lives.
Did you know that most adoptions in the US cost $45,000 on average?! We've been so blessed to be given a matching grant through Lifesong for $6,000 to help offset the financial burden of becoming adoptive parents!!
We appreciate your love and support as we go through this process. Thank you for considering donating to our page!
