The Kok Family Adoption

$3,355 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 4 months

WE ARE ADOPTING!!! We are thrilled to announce that, Lord willing, we will be opening our home and hearts through international adoption. This is something both Daniel and I have desired to do since before we were married and believe God has finally opened the door. We are looking to expand our family by adopting two siblings from Haiti.

International adoption is very expensive and we need your help. We have already raised the $12,000 needed to cover our homestudy, PRIDE courses, psychological assessments and the initial payments to the agency and hope to cover the third and fourth agency payments through tight budgeting, local fundraising and grants but need your help raising the money for our second agency installment.

Everyone who donates, no matter the size of the gift, will have their name written on a heart which will then be placed in a shadow box frame (made by my father) to be given as a gift to our children. If you wish to give anonymously, you can always email or message me your name afterwards. 

We would like to thank you all in advance for sharing in the joy of our adoption journey.

Love Daniel, Jennifer, Eliana and Seth

Just thought I would write an update as to where we are at. We are currently waiting to hear back from the ministry. If we don't hear from them by the end of this week asking for more information, we should receive approval in 2-4 weeks. We will be sending our dossier to TDH for translation along with our second payment early next week. Translation of our dossier into french takes about two-four weeks. Once this is done our dossier then gets authenticated and certified and it is ready to be sent to Haiti.

I am busy getting ready for our garage sale. I made a flyer which my brother Peter cleaned up for me. I have sorted everything and started pricing. I am also busy crocheting as our yardsale providentially falls on the same weekend as a large craft sale in town and I want to take advantage of this fact.

Lastly our gofundme has reached $3,250! We thank God for the generosity of family, friends and even strangers and are praying that He will bless our future fundraising efforts.

Love the Koks.

Our homestudy has been submitted and we are working on getting our dossier together. I am busy crocheting little animal stuffies and dolls to sell in our local second hand stores as a fundraiser. We have also planned a bake/garage sale for May 24th and 25th. I will be making cupcakes, donuts and caramel corn to sell along with donations from our friends and family and what we have left from our online garage sale. Our GoFundMe has hit $1150 mark and we are very grateful to all who have donated or shared our page so far. Daniel and I are continuing to save every month and were even able to put extra aside this month as Daniel received another raise as well as some backpay. Please continue to pray for us, especially since all the business is starting to affect not only Daniel and I, but the kids too. Love the Kok Family.
