Help Stephen & Leah Adopt A Child

$6,712 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 72 people in 35 months

That's right everybody! We are planning to adopt a child and things are progressing to the point where we need your help.

As some of you may or may not know, we have been trying to start a family for a while now.  Despite science's best efforts, several heartbreaks later we realized it just wasn't in the cards for us to have a biological child.  

Luckily, we got turned onto the idea of adoption because Stephen has done a lot of work for a great organization called HelpUsAdopt.org.  They are a wonderful grant organization dedicated to making first time families.  Unfortunately, since Stephen has worked for them for so long, we can't get a grant as it is a conflict of interest, but they have helped us in every other way imaginable during this process and we love them.

As actors who haven't scored that amazing TV gig yet (the struggle is real), obviously we are getting by, but excess funds to cover the insane costs of adoption are pretty high.   They can include lawyer's fees, medical bills, financial support for the birth mother (things like, rent, food, utilities, etc), advertising costs, and the list goes on.  We have already saved a lot, but there is a ways to go.

So, we are asking for you help.  Anything you can give to help us out would mean the world to us.  There is no amount too small or large to give.  And there are some interesting reward levels down below to check out.  Remember, all levels automatically include the levels below them.

Thank you for your consideration and for helping to make our dream of starting a family come true.

Sincerely,

Stephen & Leah

I thought Fairy Godparent was sort of perfect. Don't you? I will be giving more as time passes and money permits but, with Thanksgiving upon us, I thought it was time to say some sort of proper thank-you for helping me when things looked pretty bleak. Eddie has been a Godsend, and I'm eternally grateful. Hope you have a beautiful holiday weekend. Much Love!
