Jason and Jonathan's Adoption Journey

My brother, Jason and his husband, Jonathan have been together since 2012.  Jason proposed in November of 2015, but thoughts of a wedding were put on hold when Jason was diagnosed with cancer January 2018.  The original diagnosis was stage 3, but further scans and testing revealed it was in his bones, elevating the status to stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. 

Jonathan was Jason's rock and caregiver during his treatments. He was there for him every day and at his lowest points. After months of rigorous chemotherapy, Jason walked out of his final chemo treatment July 5, 2018. Today he is cancer free! 

In 0ctober 2019, they were given their dream wedding! Their love story and surprise wedding is featured on the Netflix original series, called 'Say I Do'. They were able to share their love story, and have the wedding they both deserved, and weren't able to have, due to the medical bills deplenishing their savings. 
The next chapter of their love story is starting their adoption journey! During filming, they were fortunate enough to be able to meet with an adoption attorney to get more information on the process of adoption. The attorney informed them that cost would be in the mid-$40,000 range. Again, with no savings from the cancer treatments and medical bills, the boys are back to square one trying to save to start their family. 

They are the best uncles! They would make the most wonderful father's! I want more than anything to help make their dreams of being parents come true! I can't think of a more loving home and family for a child to be brought into. Please help them become the father's they soon hope to be.
