Boos Family Adoption Fund

Thank you for reading our story.

Throughout these past years, we've known that we truly want to share our love with a child, to be parents. Before we received confirmation that a biological child would not be possible, we decided to pursue building our family through adoption. After a couple false starts, we found a reputable agency and dove in.

We have been pre-matched with two siblings from Thailand. They're about the age Bobby was when he moved to the US from Thailand. The little boy and girl are healthy. We are excited to go on to the next steps which is to complete our home study, compile our dossier and send it off to the Thailand Government.
Update: 2/16- we are almost done compiling all documents for the home study, have taken two classes and have one more to go plus some e-learning). We are researching which grants to apply for and are meeting with a financial counselor for advice on budgeting, savings, and loans. We considered closing the gofundme, because maybe we can figure it out, but decided to leave it open. If someone wants to give, we are thankful. If adoption fundraising is not your thing (maybe you think it's in bad taste), we have talked about that point of view and share some of that discomfort. We understand not giving due to any reason or no reason at all.

Any donations we receive will go to an adoption savings account that is restricted for those purposes. This will assure that every penny donated will go only towards the adoption and nothing else.

Thank you for your support. More than anything, we're glad you're in our lives and some day our kids' lives, too.

We have been busy working on our home study, which involves tracking down lots of legal documents, filling out paperwork, reading books and articles online, attending classes, meeting with social workers, and eventually having a social worker come over to our house and check it out.

Update on financials: We met with a financial counselor to discuss the framework of our budgeting and how fundraising fits inside the overall budget and our strategy to finance the adoption. We are researching grants that we can apply for and looking at financing options. We continue to save money from each paycheck.

What an amazing journey this has been. It started out feeling so huge and overwhelming but as the year has gone by, we've grown more comfortable in this stage.
