Baby Hanks Adoption Fund


We're on an adventure to find the missing piece in our family! After struggling with infertility and failed fertility treatments, we're very excited to annouce our decision to pursue adoption. 

As some of you may know, adoption is expensive.  Our total costs will be over $35,000. We are hoping to raise $15,000 through a puzzle fundraiser.

Please consider donating. Here's how it works:

1. We've created a puzzle to hang in Baby Hanks' nursery.  Our hope is that this puzzle will be a beautiful way to show our child just how much they were loved, even before they were ours. 

2. You can “adopt” a puzzle piece for $35. You can choose to adopt 1, 2, 3, or 10 pieces! Really, there is no limit - whatever you feel led to give. 

3. Once you purchase a puzzle piece(s), we will write your name on the back (or on a section of connected pieces if you buy more than one). We will post updates periodically through GoFundMe and Facebook so you can see the puzzle progress.

4. Once every piece has been “adopted”, we will put the puzzle together and hang it in a double-sided glass frame in our child’s room. When we tell their adoption story, we will read all of the names on the back of the puzzle and explain how all of these people helped us bring them home!

We’d be honored and humbled to have you be a part of this exciting story. We are already so blessed to have amazing friends and family and we thank God for this wonderful opportunity. We know everything happens in His time and that He has an amazing plan for us. We can't wait to see how everything unfolds!

In the meantime, we are patiently waiting to meet our child and we would like to invite you to pray with us (and for us) as we embark on this journey towards becoming a family. We can't wait to be #HanksPartyof3. :)
