Guerrero Family Adoption
$1,250 of $3,000 goal
After being married for 2 and a half years, we decided that it was time to start trying for a family. At about the 1 year of trying mark, we had to sit and have a discussion about if this is something that we want to continue to pursue. I (Danielle) have a bad back, and this complicated things for us. After prayerful consideration we decided to spring into adoption as the focus of our family. Adoption was never a plan B, just a plan “maybe later”. Being faced with the confrontation of potential issues with having bio kids, we knew this was the time to start this process.
We have an ambiguous answer when it comes to our fertility, and that is something that we are fine with. We don’t need to push and pursue something that may or may not happen. What we do know is that we are called to be parents, and to love a kid as much as possible. We also know that we have amazing family and supports. Our siblings and parents are over the moon to get to meet our future child, and already have this child in their hearts. We also have amazing friends who are anxious to go on this journey with us. We have amazing mentors, who have rejoiced, counseled, cried, and prayed with us as we decided to start this journey now. Finally, we have a Heavenly Father who has shown us love, grace, and compassion and has adopted us into his family, that we may inherit all his favor and blessings.
How can you help?
We have selected and agency and are on their waiting list and are now starting to begin the fun adventure that comes with fund raising. We have some fun ideas planned and some events we will be doing locally, but we have set up this campaign for those who wish to just donate out of their hearts or are not local or near the area we live. With your help and contribution we can be one step closer to reaching our overall goal and open up to the child that is meant to be our own!

And other donation sources. Thank you so much!
Don't forget we are closing this fundraiser at midnight tonight, but there will be other opportunities for other fundraisers kicking in soon.
Deadline for this campaign is July 31st.
We are so grateful and thankful to all of you. At this moment, Go Fund Me did not work the way we thought it might, which is totally OK. We appreciate all the love and support you have all given to us emotionally and otherwise.
When we began this campaign, really we wanted to set it up as a way for people to help if they wanted, but it appears that donations don't stay open forever, we are in need of closing out this campaign by July 31st, so if you would like to donate via Go Fund Me, that is your deadline.
We are about to launch a fun series of fund raisers (starting with an awesome coffee tasting hosted by our favorite house, Beck's coffee!) and others, so there are many other ways to help. We also have a separate PayPal account (link in our website foreverguerrero.com) set up.
Adoption is such a great adventure and we believe hard in working for our end goal and we are so thankful for all the love and support!
Luis, Danielle & Baby G
