Burundi Adoption - Griffin Family

Our family of four is becoming a family of six! We are currently in the process of adopting from Burundi.

When we got married in 2003 our plan was to add to our family through both biological and adopted children. Jady & I have each been to Africa numerous time and it was clear that God was leading us to adopt from there.

The adoption will cost approx. $35,000 total. We have received some grants and have already paid some of the costs. However, we are still needing $20,000 to complete the adoption.

Yea, we know. Thats a LOT of money, but every bit counts.
We have broken down our costs into two phases. Phase I is to raise $15,000 which will cover legal fees, country fees and our first trip to Burundi.

Thanks for your donation and helping us bring our newest Griffins home!
