Adam and I have been trying to have a baby for the past three years with no success. We have tried multiple fertility treatments with no success and doctors cannot seem to find the cause of this. We are so excited to take this journey to bring a child home that needs a family. We are confident that we will be amazing parents and will provide a happy, healthy and spiritual home!
We recently went to a class at an adoption agency in town, just to see what it was all about. We grew more and more excited about the possibility of finally having a family of our own. When we left the class, we knew adoption was what we were supposed to pursue. We are so excited to begin this journey. We know that someday there will be car seat in our backseat and baby photos on our wall There is just one uncertainty in our minds: the finances. Anyone who knows anything about adoption through an agency knows it is not cheap and as much as we hate asking, we need help.
Our agency bases their fees on a sliding scale. Based on our income, we are planning for our adoption to cost around $18,000.This includes agency fees, legal fees, and home study fees. What we love about our agency is that they truly view their role as being a ministry to birth families. Birth families do not pay a dime for the services they receive and the agency is adamant that they are not in the business of taking babies away from their families. They are in the business of helping birth families make the decision that is right for them, by either keeping the baby and giving them the necessary tools to do so successfully, or by finding a loving home for the baby to grow up in. We join the agency in their mission by providing that loving home.
We know our child is (or soon will be) out there somewhere. We need your help to bring them home. Look for the "Donate Now" button(s) on this page. Donating is quick, easy and secure. By ourselves, this mountain seems insurmountable, but together, we know it can be done. If everyone who sees this would sacrifice cost of one dinner out or a couple of coffees, we'll reach our goal before we know it.
Adam and I cannot thank you enough for considering supporting our journey! We love you all for the role you play in our lives and the role you will play in our child's life one day!
Adam and Amanda
