Our family is in the process of adopting a child! We have always wanted to have multiple children, but infertility arose and we began to have concerns that we would not be able to have children. In 2014 we got lucky through the IVF process to have our son, Joshua. However since then life has thrown us a curve. The second attempt at IVF was successful however we suffered a miscarriage in the loss of our daughter in 2017. Since then we discussed how to move forward and had fears of losing another child. We wanted Joshua to have another sibling and we wanted to have another child. As a result adoption became the option for us to grow our family and give our son the opportunity to be an older brother.
We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a beautiful new life into our home. As part of our adoption process, we have started a crowdfunding campaign due to the costs that arise with the adoption process. It may surprise you to hear that adoption related costs can easily total up to $35,000 or more domestically in the United States. This is why we have set a goal of $25,000 to help ease the financial burden so we can achieve our dreams of having another child and a sibling for Joshua.
We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up. We sincerely appreciate your visitation of our campaign and hope that you will help us achieve our goal and dreams.
