Help Shane & Ashley’s Adoption

$8,945 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 16 months
Building a family has always been a desire of ours, but starting a family has been the biggest mountain we have faced together.  Adoption is a calling laid on our hearts.  It is through faith that we believe God's love will move mountains!

After 5 years of doctor’s appointments and month after month of disappointment, we began to pray.  We prayed for answers, we prayed for a child, for a healthy womb and finally, we prayed for stronger faith.  It has been through prayers and faith in God that we have been lead to adoption. 

Adoption is not cheap, and we are by no means wealthy.  We are working hard to raise the money with fundraisers, 2nd (and 3rd) jobs,  but we need help through donations.  

We we are currently working with an agency but are 100% open to a private adoption. Sharing our story is the best chance we have for our birth mother to find us. 

We are so blessed to have you all in our lives: family, friends, and an amazing church family.  We ask that most importantly you remember us in prayer.  Secondly, for your help financially in whatever capacity you feel led.  Please don’t underestimate the power of $5 when it comes in multitudes.   If you would like to reach out to us with questions or words of encouragement please don’t hesitate!  We love you all, and can’t wait for baby Russell to know of the love you've shown.

Love,  Ashley and Shane.

Hey Y'all

I'm so behind on our updates and I'm so very sorry!!! I wanted to send our most heartfelt thanks to all those who came out to support our Yard Sale and a special thanks to our church, friends and family for not only helping us set up but also staying with us and helping through out the sale. We couldn't have done anything without you (pics below!). We were incredibly blessed with the sale and were able to add $3,100 dollars to the adoption fund!!! It was a huge blessing and we are getting ready to do it again! We will have another indoor Yard Sale at Bethel Baptist in Pleasant Grove on October 14th. If you have items you'd like to donate please contact Shane or I either via phone or Facebook. Also, if you have extra space and could help us store stuff until the sale we would be forever grateful! Shane and I have turned in our required paperwork and background checks and we are now working on our profile book for potential birth mothers to see. We are meeting with our social worker on the 15th for one of our home study interviews. We'll have 3 more interviews and then our profile will start being shown! Thank you all for staying with us and looking for our updates (I promise they will come sooner next time) we love you all and the continued support and prayers mean the world!
