The Howes Adoption

Lindsey Howe
Lindsey Howe OJAI, California

Adoption has captured our hearts for many years. After 9 years of being married and having a biological Daughter of our own we have decided to pursue domestic infant adoption. We are excited about bringing another little one into our family. We are 2 years into the process with a completed homestudy and lots of paperwork to get to this point of fundraising. Shiloh asks everyday “when’s my baby brother or sister coming?” We are excited to answer her back with “soon” as we are getting closer to picking up our little one.

We would love to join hands and do this with you. It takes a tribe to raise a child. We feel so honored and blessed by our community and the support we have received in this journey. We are so thankful that we can provide for this child’s daily needs and surround them with love. The reality of adoption financially is hard. There are lawyer bills, agency fees, and birth Mom support that we are responsible for to bring this child home. We received a $10,000 matching grant from Lifesong already. We have applied for others grants and have invested our own funds for the process so far. Anything, big, or small will be a blessing to us and this child. Thank you for partnering with us. We will keep this page updated with travel, timeline, and specific prayer requests and as they come.


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 “Howe #8968”, 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.

Garage Sale Success!

July 18, 2021

We had a productive and fun weekend with back to back garage sales. What joy it was talking to our community about our adoption and hearing so many stories from others of their journeys and experiences with adopting. We raised $800 and this will be doubled with our fundraiser.

Thank you all who helped and donated items! Were getting closer to bringing baby home 🙂
