Sawubona (Hello in Zulu)! We are the Denie Family and we are raising money to help with some of the costs for our second adoption.
Our first trip to South Africa was in 2015 with our non-profit organization Legacy One. We have now travelled to South Africa on 4 different occasions (for work and our first adoption), and South Africa has rooted itself deep in our hearts. We are so excited to expand our family again.
Before we adopted our first child we had no idea what was involved with the adoption process and the cost. Every country has a unique adoption process with varying costs. In our experience, the cost was $50,000 including all file preparation and processing, travel to South Africa for 5-7 weeks, child placement and follow-up.
It's no surprise that adoption is expensive. We understand that this is our choice to step into parenthood this way and we do not expect anyone to feel obligated to give. That being said, we want to give you an opportunity to be a part of this journey with us. If you want to donate to help us cover the expenses we would be extremely grateful.
