A Little for the Leonards

After two years of trying to get pregnant and two early miscarriages, Heidi and Brandon Leonard lost their son at 24 weeks to a fatal heart condition. They named him Phelipe - which means hope. They of course were heartbroken by the loss of their son. In times like those, it is difficult to understand the plan God has in mind - but they knew He was guiding them to a path of adoption. 

Their hearts are open to love a child and to raise them in a supportive nurturing environment. Their dream to fill their home with children also comes with an overwhelming financial burden. A domestic adoption can cost upwards of $50,000. 

To help ease this burden, we are asking for your generous donations and prayers. 

A benefit and silent auction will be held at Queen City Exchange in Cincinnati on October 14th, 2017 from 3pm-7pm. We are also selling t-shirts for $9 before the event and $13 the day of the event.

If you would like to pre-order a t-shirt, please leave a message on this page with your sizes. All payments and donations can be made to this gofundme page. 

We want to thank you for your generosity and hope you will join us for the fun on October 14th!
