Help Sarah Adopt Her Daughter

Ten years ago Sarah and her former wife had a beautiful daughter named Emerson. Though Sarah is not the one who physically birthed her, she is Emerson's mother in every sense of the word... raising, caring for and passionately loving her daughter. 

In 2009 Sarah and her wife seperated. She continued to be an active, involved and loving co-parent. She stayed very involved  financially and spent equal time with Emerson.

However, in 2012 a personal misunderstanding between Sarah and her ex led to Emerson being taken away from Sarah for approximently 4 months. Admist such sadness and devestation, Sarah hired a lawyer and went to court and received regular visitation. From that point on Sarah was to determined to pursue the legal adoption of Emerson.

As of today, through much patience Sarah once again shares equal time with her daughter and is able to proceed with the adoption.   This is very important to both Emerson and Sarah. Yet such action takes funding. Funding that has kept her at a standstill at this time.

Anyone who knows Sarah knows that she is a dedicated, present and loving mother.  She has given her life to being the best mother she can be. In return,  her bond with Emerson is beautiful and strong. That little girl is fortunate to have Sarah always in her corner, loving her and cheering her on in life.

Please help Sarah collect the funds necessary to legalize this adoption. Any amount contributed will help defray her costs and make her dream a reality. Sarah is very hardworking both in her career as well as coaching Emerson's softball team and supporting her through these impressionable years.

Thank you so much for your kindness and understanding. Sarah and Emerson are fantastic people who just want to legally be a family.
