Adoption Expenses for the Keys

Please help Julie and Gary adopt a child! These wonderful people have been trying so hard, for so long, to have a child. They have spent over $50,000 so far, and tried IUI as well as IVF. They have taken out another mortgage against their home, and maxed out borrowing from friends and family. 

Once they decided to adopt a child, they found a highly recommended local Denver agency with affordable fees. They paid $9,850 as an initial fee and went through the complete adoption process, including paperwork. They were waiting to get matched to a birth mother when the adoption agency suddenly decided to close their doors, because of a license suspension with the Department of Human Services that they chose not to fight.

Denver Channel 4 has interviewed the Keys for a news story about the violations against the agency and the fact that the Keys will not be receiving a refund. They now have to go back to step 1 and find another agency to use. Unfortunately, the fees for other agencies can range from $28,000 to $35,000 in total.

Julie and Gary are some of the kindest people I know. It is so unfortunate and unfair that two people who want a child so badly, and would make such amazing parents, have hit as many roadblocks as they have. Please help them continue their quest to adopt a child! Every little donation helps.
