We were heartbroken. We did not even know where to turn. We had paid this lawyer in full. The money that we had saved for this process was gone. After a long worrysome weekend we contacted a new lawyer on Monday morning and set a consultation for Tuesday.
After meeting with the new laywer we found out that the little bit of stuff that the original lawyer had done was not done the correct way and that there is more to it than the original lawyer made it out to be. We found out that we have to have a home study done which costs approximately $3500.00! Our new laywer, who has done several adoptions before, will cost approximately $3000.00 for their fee's and court costs. Totaling around $6500.00.
Here is where we need your help! We had several friends come forward with fundraising ideas and all of those were greatly appreciated. After researching into this we found a very special adoption fundraiser. It's called an adoption puzzle fundraiser. Here is how it works. We are going to purchase a puzzle with a family picture printed on it. We will then be on the hunt for people who would like to help sponser Harper's adoption puzzle. To sponser a puzzle piece it's $10. When you sponser a piece we will write your name on the back of the puzzle piece. How you put your name on the puzzle piece is your choice. If we wanted to sponser a piece we could put ''The Hilliards'' or we could sponser 3 pieces and do a piece with each of our names on it! Once we finish putting the puzzle together we are going to frame it and put it on the wall in Harper's bedroom so in the years to come we can take it down and show Harper all of those who helped make her puzzle complete.
If you are interested in being a piece of Harper's puzzle we have made this GoFundMe that you can goto to donate. Please include in the message what name is to go on the puzzle piece. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Please share this! Have a blessed day.
