Whichever Shoe Fits: Adoption

For months, we have been secretly filling out paper work, learning Spanish, doing trainings, and preparing our home for our families next chapter. Now our paperwork has been approved, and we can go public. So...

The Tancks are ADOPTING!!! We are beyond excited that we have the joy of growing a family AND the privilege of providing a home to children who need one. It is something we have been hoping and dreaming about. We. Can. Not. Wait.

We also know that it takes a village to raise a child. Especially given all the complexities and challenges of international adoption. One of the challenges is financial.

Included in the over-all cost are travel fees, visas, attorney fees, and agency fees. While that's a small price to pay for the gift we'll receive (honestly), and we have been saving like crazy people, we know we're not alone in wanting to give homes to the orphan.

We have started a puzzle with 1,000 pieces--all the pieces that came together to bring our new family together. Once completed, we will frame it and put it on the wall, as a reminder to our family of the love that surrounds us, and the pieces that made this possible.

You can become one of those pieces. Purchase as many pieces as you'd like, at $10 a piece, and we'll put your name on the back of the puzzle piece/s.

Thank you for whatever ways you're able to support us as we enter this new chapter of our lives.
