Starry Night Adoption Fundraiser


We are Erin and Tim Deets.  We are a young at heart and loving couple from a small town in Illinois.  We have been married for 2 years and we are ready to start our family.  We have some struggles in our way and after much prayer we feel that God is leading us to open up our family and adopt.

We will be adopting a newborn domestically.  We have signed up with an agency, taken all of our classes, got our license, and finished our home study.  We are now in the waiting period.  During this time we are just waiting for a birth mother to decide that we are the best family for her child.  As we wait we are doing everything we can to prepare both mentally, physically, and financially.

Adoption is a wonderful opportunity but it comes with a cost.  After everything is done the adoption will cost near $20,000.  Although we feel strongly that we are being called to adopt and that we are following God's plan, we do worry about the expenses. 

We are asking you from the bottom of our hearts to please consider helping us with our Puzzle Piece Fundraiser to help raise the money to support the adoption costs. 

For every $10 donated, your name will go on a star for our starry night picture ($50 will get you a medium star and $100+ a large star).  The starry night picture will then be displayed in the baby's star themed nursery as a reminder of all of the love and support he or she received during this adoption process.  Please include a special message as well that we can share with Baby Deets, too. This way, our baby will always know how much he or she is loved and cared for.   Please write and let us know what name you would like displayed on the star.

We thank God every day for the amazing opportunity that has been put in front of us to adopt and we would love so much to have your thoughts, prayers, and support as well.  We know this is a long process and that everything will happen in God's time, but it is nice to know you are there during this waiting time as well. 

Thank you so much!
Erin and Tim Deets
