Kyle and Emily's Adoption Fund

Donation protected
We are overjoyed to be on the journey of welcoming​ a child into our family through domestic infant adoption. Welcome and thank you for learning more about our story!

We have come to realize our desire to adopt is born of our experience of community over the last ten years. In each place we've called home--Maryland, North Carolina, DR Congo, and Minnesota--we've received the gift of true kinship beyond the bonds of genetics and biology. We have been the ones welcomed into new cultures and new homes. We have been loved like family. In light of this, adoption is our overwhelmingly clear next step.

We're pursuing open domestic infant adoption through CHLSS of Minnesota. Open, meaning we're open to having some kind of ongoing contact with our child's birth family. Domestic, meaning a child born within the US. We can't wait to welcome a child into our family and offer them a home of love and belonging.

Funds raised here will be used directly to support adoption expenses (agency fees, matching fees, legal fees, medical fees).
