Are we overwhelmed? Excited? Prayerful? Wanting your partnership? YES!
While all the above are true, we are ultimately so thrilled to be stepping into this process and know that God is preparing our hearts, minds and home to welcome a child into it. We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of our community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up.
As part of our adoption process, we have started a crowdfunding campaign. It may surprise you to hear that adoption related costs can easily total up to $50,000 or more. This is why we have set a goal of $37,000 to help ease the financial burden. Would you consider helping us raise this support so that we can grow the Neises family in the way that we feel God has called us to do?

In the memo line please write “Neises 10017”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, Gridley, IL 61744.
