Loving Family Looking to Adopt

We have always longed to be parents. From the day we met, we both wanted to have kids. As many of you know, we have been trying to start a family of our own for more than 5 years. We had a couple options from here. infertility treatments or adopt. We can't stand the thought of spending our money to *try* and make a new life when there are already so many out there who need a loving home. For this reason, we have decided to adopt.

Unfortunately, adopting is VERY expensive. The entire process will cost us between $25k-$35k. Though we have some money saved up, we have a long way to go. This is where you come in. We would like to ask for a little help from our friends and family. If you would like to help us give a child a loving home, please donate. If not, that is okay too. We know not everyone has the means right now. If you can't donate, leave us a message of support and share this page with your friends and family. No donation is too small. Even a meager $5 will help us move toward our goal.

Thank you for any help you can provide and much love to you!
Derek and Alicia
