Hamstra Family Adoption

Hey everybody!

We have some BIG news. We are ADOPTINGAGAIN!!!

As some of you may or may not know, we have been in process of adopting our son Daniel through the foster care system. Well, we are thrilled to tell you that his adoption will finally be completed in the next few months.  After a 5 year journey, Daniel will officially be a Hamstra!!

With this adoption becoming official, we feel like it’s time to work on getting #BigD a sibling!  And we've decided to do this through traditional adoption.

We have actually been working on this behind the scenes for quite some time.  As some of you may know we were matched with a birth mother back in April and sadly that didn't work out.  

So we took a few months to catch our breath & to figure out our next step, and we are thrilled to announce that we are now matched with another birth mom who is due in April of 2019!  

So many of you have already partnered with us through prayer and encouragement on our journey with Daniel as well as with our last adoption match (all of the funds we received from the last adoption that we received back have already been applied to this adoption).

Words cannot express how grateful we are for each and every one of you.

The reason we established this fundraiser & The Hamstra Family Adoption Fund is to see if you may be interested in partnering with us again this time to help us bring Hamstra baby #2 home to Chicagoland.

If you are interested in partnering with us, here are 3 ways you can do that:

1. GIVE >>> By the time this adoption is all said and done it will end up costing about $45,000. The GREAT news is we already have had generous generous donors come forward & we have raised $30,000!  That’s leaves $15,000 more that we need to come up within the next few months. If you are interested in partnering with us and supporting us financially for this adoption, click the give button on this page and follow the instruction. 100% of all gifts will be given directly towards adoption fees & expenses.

2. SHARE >>> Every social media share helps. In fact, it’s estimated that every share generates $37. You can partner with us by clicking the share buttons and sharing this page on your various platforms!

3. PRAY >>> We believe in the power of prayer! We are looking for a team of people to be praying not only for our new baby, but for the birth family, provision, and that God connects all the right dots.

We are so thankful for all of you and honored to do this journey with you. Thanks again for all the continued love & support. We are forever grateful for all of you and love you all. If you have any questions feel free to contact us.

Thank you for your time, 

Sam & Taylor

ps…Daniel says thank you in advance for a helping him get a new little brother or sister :)
