We have been open to adoption from the beginning, really even before we started trying to get pregnant we had talked about adopting or fostering at some point. In the last few months we have felt a complete shift from adoption being our last option for baby #1 to it being our hearts desire.
We are completely over the moon about this decision and know it is right for our family. We have the most amazing support system in our family and friends and know you will all be just as excited about this as we are.
As you may or may not know adoption is quite expensive. Specifically for Columbia the average cost is between $26,000-$30,000. We are humbling ourselves and reaching out for help in this process.
We truly appreciate your love and support in whatever way you are able. We love you!
