Adoption Expenses

We have BIG news!

We are adopting a child!

We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a beautiful new life into our home. As part of our adoption process, we have started this crowdfunding campaign.

We have both had a heart for adoption for a very long time, and are excited to begin the process.We are hoping to "officially" begin around Christmas time, but we will need several thousand dollars to even begin the process. It is our hope that we can raise part of that money via fundraising. 

It may surprise you to hear that adoption related costs can easily total up to $35,000 or more. Adoption is expensive, but the reward far outweighs the cost. We appreciate each and every dollar our friends and family are able to contribute. It truly takes a village, and YOU are our village. <3

If you are unable to donate, please consider helping by sharing our fundraiser! We appreciate you all so much. We can't wait to hold our baby in our arms one day soon.

With Love,
Tom & Kristen
