Thank you for listening to our story. We have long wanted to adopt and long wanted a little girl. We have finally gotten the chance to achieve both of those dreams when we were matched in August 2019! Our little girl will be arriving in December and we couldn’t be more excited. We are looking to get the last of the finances together that we need for this dream.
We have been awarded a $3000 matching grant from Hands of Hope Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. This grant will go a long way towards helping us cover our final agency and legal fees with no more debt. We are hoping to have all of our fundraising done by Thanksgiving so that we can then focus on physically preparing for her at that point. Thank you for your prayers and for your donations!!
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”.

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.
