Since I was 10 years old, I’ve known that I wanted to adopt. The time has finally come! A birth mother recently contacted me to ask if I would adopt her unborn child. Baby Liam is due December 20, 2014.
I love my job as a special education teacher and certified trauma specialist in a local public school. My love for children is deep-seated. Recently, I was named "Foster Parent of the Year" by a local nonprofit. I know that I can provide Baby Liam with stability and love. As my friends and family know, I have a lot of love to give and have been waiting a long time to share it!
As with many things, the costs associated with adoption are quite high. For this reason I am reaching out to family, friends, and “friends I have yet to meet” to help with the necessary costs to bring Baby Liam home.

$8,500 Initial lawyer's fees

$2,500 Home study

Your love lights the world!
