Help the Hamiltons Adopt

It Takes a Village:

We are in the process of adoption. Through this process we have learned it takes a village to get a son! We have had social workers, family, friends, congregations, a birth mom and countless other wonderful people help us through the process of finding our son, and soon bringing him home.

Realizing fertility treatments were not going to work, Jay and I knew we were still called to add to our family. Thus began the adoption process. What learning experience! While it has not always been easy for us we knew it was the only way to go. Through this journey we have been blessed beyond words. Our sweet birth mother chose us about two months ago and it has been such a gift to get to know her. We were matched much quicker than we had originally anticipated and because of that have been caught a little off guard financially. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to bring our son home in just a few short months. After much thought and consideration (and advice seeking from family and friends) we've decided to reach out to our village and ask for help.

Most parents would agree that there is nothing they wouldn't do for their children and even though he isn't here yet, there is nothing we wouldn't do for this baby boy. It has been both humbling and overwhelming to have been chosen to parent this child. It is such a blessing. We are so grateful for everyone's thoughts, prayers and financial assistance during this time and we look forward to providing updates as we progress through these next few weeks.
