Operation Adopt “Lil Owl”
Our first sibling pair was reunified. And it was hard. Many tears were shed. But ultimately, we knew in the long run it was best for them.
Then we took in “lil owl”. She was only 6 days old. We took her in, not knowing if it would lead to adoption or not. We weren’t looking for a specific child to adopt. But even though they said it most likely would lead to permanency (adoption), we couldn’t let our hearts get excited.
She has now been in our home for over 15 months. We have been trying to be approved to adopt her for over a year. We keep hitting speed bumps that are being made into mountains. We have reached a point that we need to hire a personal lawyer to represent us and try and get to the bottom of this.
We have created this page to raise funds for our lawyer’s fees and other court related costs. Any money over the amount needed will be split between a college fund for our “lil owl” and donations to help other foster families create forever homes.
We cannot thank you enough for reading our story! Any amount, prayers or encouragement is so appreciated as we face this battle. But we are not giving up! We also thank our friends and family who encouraged us to set up this page because they wanted to do more. Thank you!
