Adopting A Bundle of Joy

Hello and thank you so much for stopping by and checking out our page! We are Mike and Ashley from Arkansas and we are so excited to be adopting! Ashley and I have been praying for a little bundle of joy. Although this process is extremely stressful, we are very excited to see what God will have in store for us.

Ashley found out last year that she will not be able to give birth to our children. We were informed that all of her eggs have been depleted. Fertility doctors have informed us that we have a less than 4% chance of concieving a child. We are so excited to take this journey to bring a little bundle of joy into our home.We are confident that we will be amazing parents and will provide a happy, healthy and spiritual home to a little boy or girl!

We have been working with a really great a adoption agency in town a and we would like to continue working with this agency. We are very excited about the possibility of finally having a family of our own.  We are both happy and ready to begin this journey. Anyone who knows anything about adoption through an agency knows it is not a cheap process and as pridefull as we both are, we need a little help.

Our agency bases their fees on a sliding scale. Based on our income, we are planning for our adoption to cost around $18,000.This includes agency fees, legal fees, and birthmom pregnancy related medical bills. What we love about our agency is that they truly view their role as being a ministry to birth families. Birth families do not pay a dime for the services they receive and the agency is adamant that they are not in the business of taking babies away from their families. They are in the business of helping birth families make the decision that is right for them, by either keeping the baby and giving them the necessary tools to do so successfully, or by finding a loving home for the baby to grow up in. We are just hoping and praying that our birthmom will feel as though she is making an good decision by blessing us to start a family.

We are so close to the finish line, but we really need your help to bring them home. Look for the Donate Now button on this page. Donating is quick, easy and secure. By ourselves, this mountain seems insurmountable, but together, we know it can be done. If everyone who sees this would sacrifice cost of one dinner out or a couple of coffees, we'll reach our goal before we know it.

Ashley and I cannot thank you enough for considering supporting our journey! Any and all donations will be greatly needed and appreciated. We love you all for the role that you about to play in our lives and the role you will play in our child's life one day! Thank you for being such a blessing to our soon to be family!
