Help Josh and Corey adopt a baby!

Joshua and Corey are in the process of adopting a baby girl who will be born in November.  Although this dream has been on their mind for a long time, it wasn't until a few weeks ago that they realized it could soon come true.  They were put in touch with an expectant mother of three who is struggling through hard times, and is not currently able to support another.  She is looking to make a better life for her children, and she recognizes that she too has a unique opportunity to provide a better life for her unborn child through adoption.  

Corey himself was adopted at birth, and is thrilled to continue the legacy and help another in need.  He and Josh will give back by helping this child have a successful life, and by helping the mother know she did the best thing for her daughter.   

Having been together for thirteen years and married for one, they are ready to embrace the joys and fullfillment of parenthood.  After hearing of this rare and remarkable opportunity, they've begun researching the adoption procedure.  Although they have steady jobs and reliable incomes for raising a child, the legal fees of adoption are staggering.  The pregnancy is also high risk, and they may face further financial obsticals if there are complications after the birth.  

As Josh's long-time close friend, I am trying to help him and his husband raise enough to supplement the required legal fees.  Your generosity will contribute to the beginning of a new family and a lifetime of love.  Every penny counts, and will appreciated beyond description.
