Waller Adoption in Uganda, Africa

Our Family, Our Heart
We are Doug and Brooke Waller and we have a heart for the orphan. We have been blessed to adopt two amazing children from Ethiopia. Henry, age 5, has been home for four years. Theodore, age 3, has been home about a year and a half. Despite our blessings, our hearts still ache for children that do not have a family. We feel called by God to continue adopting.

The Journey
The journey to adopt each time has been arduous, yet always worth it. Along the way we’ve encountered barriers, experienced policy changes, witnessed adoption laws change, lost big sums of money due to adoption agency bankruptcy ($20k+), and waited out long delays. Nonetheless, our determination to care for the orphan has enabled us to persevere.

What’s Next?
We are adopting again, this time from Uganda! We look forward to bringing home a two year old little boy and a one year old little girl. Hooray! They are sweet as can be.

Your Part
This is where we need your help. International adoption is expensive and grueling. Pray for us! Help fund us! Here is the breakdown of cost for adopting two children form Uganda:

Total Estimated Cost: $66,000
Home Study: $3,000
State Department: $2,000
Adoption Agency Fees: $15,000
Uganda Adoption Fees: $25,000
Travel Expenses (2 trips to Uganda): $10,000
Foster Care: (for 2 children): $6000
Medical Care: (in Uganda & upon arrival): $5000

Here We Go!
Will you join us in this journey? We pray that God sends people to help us reflect Christ's love by giving two sweet babies in Uganda a forever family. Thank you so much for your prayers and partnership.
