Snyder Adoption Fund

Mariah and I have been together for over 5 yrs and married for almost 3 yrs. We love kids and were raised in solid homes with stable families, which is exactly what we want to offer to children of our own. With how family oriented we are, it has been emotionally challenging knowing that we will never be able to give birth to a child, but we greatly look forward to adopting a child into our family!

I work for a State Farm agency and Mariah teaches 3rd and 4th grade at a private Christian School. It would be our greatest joy to be able to raise a child in a secure home with loving parents. 

We have no idea what it would be like to be in a situation where we would need to consider placing our child up for adoption, yet for those who may be facing such a difficult decision we have one dire request - please do not consider aborting the child! We ask this because we know that life is precious and because there are people who would love and cherish your child. We know because we are 2 of those people.

The cost of adopting a child today is extremely high, and the last thing I would want a set of parents to have who are taking on the responsibility of a child is a large amount of debt. The average cost of an adoption within the U.S. is over $30,000.

We would love to have a large family someday and your support for our children would be greatly appreciated! All of the funds raised will go directly towards the attorney fees, placement fees, homestudy, and birth-mother expenses. If we somehow raise more than needed for our first child then we will use the funds to continue adopting more children!

Thank you so much for your support!
