Megan and Jarell's Adoption Fund

Jarell and Megan Routt are extraordinary people.  They are both educators and coaches who genuinely want to make a difference in young people's lives.  They are also heavily involved in a program that delivers food to the hungry here in Austin.  These two are the most loving, selfless people that I have ever met and despite knowing them for only 4 years, I would absolutely consider them family.   That is why I want to help them so badly.  My hope is that we can come together and raise money to help them take care of the 3 young boys they are adopting. 

Over the past month, Jarell and Megan's life has changed dramatically.  They recieved a call that Jarell's nephew, Jordan, was going to have to go into foster care if they were not able to take him in and quickly agreed as they want whats best for their family.  However, Jordan has two brothers, Zyon and Princeston, who have been in foster care since birth and if there was any chance for these brothers to grow up together, it would have to be done now.  After much deliberation and prayer, they decided it would be for the best to take in and raise all three boys (ages 6, 2, and 7 months).

As Jarell and Megan started going through the process of adopting these children, they were told that they would only be able to do so, if they had enough space in their home.   So, on top of all the changes they are about to embark on, they also need to purchase a new home to make all of this work. 

 A new home, cribs, food, diapers, day care and college are all eventual costs that they had not planned for at all.  I would like to help alleviate anyway I can, as I know that they would do whatever possible to help me.  Bringing together all of the people that share a similar love for these two was the best way I could think of to help.   Hopefully we can all pitch in and help provide a wonderful life for this family!
