We're adopting! Thank you so much for visiting our funding website, we're so thankful that you took the time to stop by and consider being apart of our adoption journey.

To provide some background, we struggled with infertility for 2 years. This was a painful season in our life where our expectations were crushed and our eyes were opened to the reality that not everyone gets pregnant as easily as society leads us to believe. After months of prayer, processing, and grieving our diagnosis of unexplained infertility, we decided we were ready to open the door to adoption in October 2021.

Months of research went into this decision and through that process we discovered that on average, domestic infant adoptions in the US cost $40,000-$60,000. A large portion of these fees go to agencies who handle mountains of paperwork, marketing, medical and living expenses for the expectant mother, travel, and legal fees. Through research, we decided to hire Christian Adoption Consultants who will prayerfully help us apply to multiple agencies in hopes of being matched with an expectant mother sooner than the 2 year average most families wait to adopt.

Although there are slightly less expensive routes to go, through prayer we decided it was best for us to hire full service professionals who know the adoption world better than we do. God has faithfully provided for us through our photography business to not have to stress about the finances of all this, but we are still seeking your help if you would like to partner with us on this journey to grow our family. Adoption will likely drain us of a lot of our savings and because we have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, we will likely need to adopt again soon after we are placed with our first child.

Partnering with us to begin our family through adoption looks like 1. Praying for us and the expectant mother we will be matched with. Pray that we would match quickly, and that the mother we do match with would receive all the support she needs to bring a healthy baby into the world. 2. Invest in one of the items on this page to help us start our family.

We will continue to add items to the wishlist as costs incur. Additional costs not yet listed include..

Agency Fees- We'll apply to 3-6 agencies which will all have different application fees ranging from $500-$5000, just to be presented to an expecting mother. This includes administration fees, reports that are required for home studies, marketing & networking costs, overhead, administration, insurance and licensing costs to run an adoption agency.

Expecting Mother Expenses- We are expected to pay for all counseling for the birth parents, living expenses, housing, transportation, maternity clothing, groceries, toiletries, utilities, as well as, prenatal care, labor and delivery, if a birth mother is not fully covered by insurance. This number can range greatly as we don't know if the mother we'll be matched with is 12 weeks or 8 months along or if she has health insurance or not.

Travel- We will likely be traveling out of state and required to stay 7-14 days in the babies birth state until state paperwork is complete. Flight, accommodations, etc.

Legal Fees- Legal expenses include hiring an attorney for us and often the birth parents to ensure the adoption is handled legally and ethically for all parties involved. It also accounts for court filing costs and representation.

Finalization, Post Placement Visits, Birth Parent Relinquishment Services, Interstate Compact Fees- $500-$10,000

Latest Update

We're approved! After a little over a month of paperwork, background checks, and visits from our lovely social worker, we're officially home study approved! This means we can begin applying to adoption matching agencies who will be able to connect us with an expecting mother looking to make an adoption plan. Please continue to pray that God would give us wisdom as we decide which agencies to apply to. All of the agencies are estimating fees ranging from $20,000-$60,000. A child's life is, of course priceless, so please pray these numbers wouldn't be a hurdle to God creating our family. Thank you TREMENDOUSLY to everyone who's already given to our adoption fund (thank you notes coming soon).
