Let’s Get “Babe” Adopted!

Jason and Sarah had been praying for child for 17 years and three years ago the Washington State Foster Care System placed “Babe” into their home - this was a family match made in heaven. Due to the sensitive nature of “Babe’s” case, her face and name can’t be disclosed on social media until she’s adopted… and so we all affectionately refer to her as, Babe! 

After the longest dependency trial in Washington State history, Babe is finally able to be adopted and couldn’t be more thrilled to make Jason and Sarah her forever-family.  Babe loves school and gets amazing grades.  She’s an avid reader and this darling family of three has made reading together a nightly priority since day one!  Babe is a future scientist that likes math and experiments, loves to bake with Sarah, and shares a passion for playing volleyball with Jason. 

As you can imagine, adoption out of the Foster Care system is a lengthy legal process and will take not just a lot of time… but money as well.  We are boldly asking our friends, family, community and complete strangers to help see this family at heart, become a family in the eyes of the law as well. All funds raised during this campaign will aid in offsetting the cost of this adoption, including attorney fees, supporting Babe with ongoing services and hopefully send this freshly minted family on a celebratory weekend away before the ink is even dry.

Will you help?  We would love one or all of the following:

 1. Prayers. Prayers that all involved will have peace, after all this time. Prayers for Jason and Sarah and they continue to learn and grow as supportive, loving parents. Prayers for Babe that she will ALWAYS know she is loved and is with her forever-family, forever.

2. Messages. Jason, Sarah and Babe would love to hear messages of encouragement from YOU.  Please email them through the link on this site.

3. Financial. The initial financial goal is $10,000 to cover the extensive cost of this particular case. We may update the goal amount as the adoption process progresses.  As costs have already started to stack up, we are hoping to reach our goal in just 60 short days!

4. Share. Please repost this campaign on your social media pages and share the love!

Thank you so much for any support you're able to give to see Babe become adopted by her forever-family!
