Earlier this week I announced that and I are adopting (http://goo.gl/KyLH4O). We are overjoyed at the opportunity to provide a loving home for a child who would otherwise be on their own. While we are eager to bring home our new bundle of joy, the process includes many obstacles.
The primary obstacle is funding it. A private adoption situation like ours still includes the cost for the attorney. We also have the filing and review fees with the state, and of course, medical costs, travel costs - you get the picture. We will find a way to make it work, but I can’t deny that it will be quite the financial challenge.
If there's one thing I've found, it's that I can place my trust in the good hearts of people. Time and again, my friends and followers both online and offline have come through in support of my family and the people I love. So I come to ask for your help.
Will you consider helping us bring the joy of another child into our home, and give a family to a child without one?

I understand if you’re not be in a position to offer a donation, but would you share this post and help us spread this message? Most of us aren’t rich, and none of us are perfect, but I know that so many of you have a warm heart, and I thank you for your support.
