Davies' Adoption Fund Step 1 of 3

$8,428 of $8,200 goal

Raised by 33 people in 31 months

We are Mark and Maritza Davies. We LOVE being parents and we have the opportunity to bring  a little girl home from Colombia.

Check out our blog post to read more of the story.

Adoption has been something we have thought about for a number of years and for the last year we have been making preparations. Seth, Samuel, and Tirzah can't stop praying for their "new sister in Colombia".

We are starting this fundraiser now because many of you have asked how you can help us complete the adoption journey. We are about 12 months away from bringing our 3-6-year-old daughter home. Your gift to our adoption fund will be such a blessing to her life and our family.

We are on our way through the USA home study  and next we'll start on the approval from the Colombian side. (This process ensures that we are fit to adopt.)

As you may know, adoption can be costly: There are home study & processing fees, adoptive parent training tuitions, official document translation, medical costs, immigration and identification fees, travel, hotels, agency, and legal fees.

We would feel so honored if you would join in the story with us by giving toward our adoption fund. We thank you in advance for your generosity and love. Our family will never be the same again!

We deep gratitude,

Mark, Maritza, Seth, Samuel, and Tirzah Davies

+DAY SIX of SEVEN+ Fundraising challenge.

Why are we adopting? We already have three great biological kids... so why add another?

Great questions! Our short answer is this: We LOVE being parents and we really want to share family with a little girl who hasn't had the chance to be in a family.

Additionally, we are hopeful for the dreams that God has for this little girl and are confident that she will bring a lot of joy and love to our family.

So, will you join us on this journey? Help us give the gift of family!

You can help by doing the following: GIVING, PRAYING, SHARING OUR POST and REFERRING your friends.

NOTE: When we started this seven-day challenge we were already at about $7,000 on Gofundme. Our goal is to add $8,200 to that total. Let's get to $15,000 by the end of this week! We can do it and you can help!

Please help us get closer to bring our daughter home. Be a part of her story!

Thank you and bless you! Mark & Maritza + Seth + Samuel + Tirzah
