Willie & Ashley Do Adoption

Willie and Ashley are very excited to be growing their family through adoption. They have had a heart for adoption for several years now. Sudden career changes, school and a pandemic have delayed the process a bit; however, they've recently received the news that they are ready to be matched with an expectant mother.

Over the past several months, they've been working closely with Adoption Support Center located in Broad Ripple, a neighborhood nestled in northern Indianapolis. Willie explains why the agency was important to them, "We chose ASC because they focus on supporting and celebrating the decision the expectant mother has made to give their child a better life that they may not be able to currently provide. We love that mission because we know that the expectant mother is making a huge personal sacrifice. Supporting her through the process is a top priority for ASC."

The timeline looks to be around three to six months for a match and possible placement so things are moving quickly with all of the preliminary work done. "It was important to us that we give friends and family an opportunity to be a part of this journey with us," Ashley says, "we wanted to have the opportunity to serve a dinner or in-person fundraiser but the pandemic really made us put on our thinking caps." 

Sticking with their theme "finding our missing piece", Willie and Ashley have converted their adoption announcement photo into a 500 piece puzzle and are selling each piece for $20. For everyone that purchases a piece or pieces, Willie and Ashley will write your name or initials on the back of the piece(s). Once all pieces are purchased and the puzzle is complete, they plan to frame it so that one day they can share with their little one all those who made their adoption possible.

Thanks to everyone for being a part of this awesome experience as Willie and Ashley do adoption.
