The Adoption Hope Foundation

The Adoption Hope Foundation is an organization in the process of gaining non-profit status.  

Our mission is to help break the financial barrier of adoption by providing grants to people who hope to build their families through adoption. 

We need your help to raise $10000 by April15th for start-up expenses and first grants. 

Our goal is to award our first grants by the end of  2015.  Please help us with our mission.  We believe that every waiting family deserves a child, and every waiting child deserves a family.  

 A message from our founder:

Our road to parenthood was not easy.  My husband and I struggled with infertility for 6 years.  We spent thousands of dollars.  We had 8 failed fertility treatments and a miscarriage.  I prayed every night for a baby and the longing inside my heart was unbearable.  I didn’t understand why God was denying me the one thing I wanted more than anything in the world.  I was angry, bitter and heartbroken.  I couldn’t breathe.  I have often referred to this time as the darkest time of my life.   

When we finally made the decision to adopt, it was like a light in the darkness.  I felt God’s presence every step of the way.  For the first time in so long, there was hope.  The first time I held my daughter in my arms when she was only a few minutes old, I was overcome with emotion.  I felt 6 years of pain wash away, and at that moment, I understood the reason for everything.  This little girl was always meant to be ours, it just took her a while to come to us. 

Adoption is a beautiful gift.  It is a life altering experience that has allowed me to feel the deepest kind of love imaginable.  Not only a love for my daughter, but for her birth parents who so selflessly placed her in the loving arms of my husband and I.  They wanted her to have a life that they could not give her.  We so deeply wanted a child that we could not conceive.  We both needed something so desperately, and we found it in each other. 

“God does notice us, and he watches over us.  But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs.  Therefore, it is vital that we serve each other.”  Spencer W. Kimball

This joy of adopting our daughter is what inspired me to begin The Adoption Hope Foundation.   The thought that some people would not be able to have a family simply because of the financial barrier was heartbreaking to me.  And thinking about babies and children who would not be adopted simply because families couldn’t afford it was unacceptable.  With the average adoption costing approximately $35,000, many qualified, loving families are unable to pursue it due to the high cost.  Please help us break this financial barrier and bring more children home!
