Averhoff Adoption Fund

Dear Family and Friends,

We are thrilled to announce that, after many years of struggling to grow our family, we are expanding our family through adoption! Our son is so excited to be a big brother, and has asked for years when he will have a sibling. We believe that a child should have a sibling, and that every child deserves a family.

Over the next year or so we will be hosting fundraisers to help us through this process. The fundraisers include this website, a garage sale in May and an ongoing baby bottle change collection drive, as well as other events to be announced at a later date.

We are hoping to raise $25,000 with the help of family, friends and random strangers. Please consider supporting us with your prayers, donations, and by sharing this page with your social network. We would appreciate your help and support with our journey.

The money raised will go towards any adoption or child related expenses, which include the home study, match fees, placement fees, legal/court fees, birth mother fees and medical fees.

GoFundMe.com is a great website to link with social media to get the word out. It also allows family and friends an easy, hassle free, opportunity to donate. However they do take a portion of the donations (5%)... please also consider mailing a donation to us directly. All donations (online or offline) will be posted on this site. Please check back often to monitor our progress and learn updates about our adoption.

Thank you for walking this journey with us. Adoption is a long process that can take several years with many ups and downs along the way. We are excited to walk the path of adoption knowing that a child is waiting to join, and complete, our family.

We covet your prayers as we patiently wait for the placement of our newest family member.

Our sincerest thanks and blessings,

The Averhoff Family
