We are Caleb and Allison Gildner, and we’re adopting!
Our adoption journey began in 2013 with an application to the Ethiopia program through America World Adoption Association. We started “the wait” in November 2014 when we submitted our dossier. We waited, and waited, and waited for a call that never came. Finally in January 2018, Ethiopia closed international adoptions. We were forced to start over. Fortunately we were able to switch fairly seamlessly to the India program through America World. We have been at peace with the switch; it was the right decision for us. Since then our adoption has taken a very different turn! Pieces have been coming together quickly.
We were matched with a 5-month old baby girl on March 15, 2019. We’re on track to bring her home in just a few months! With each step closer to finalizing the adoption, more costs and fees are due. As we enter the final push to finish this long process and finally become a family, we welcome your support through prayers and donations. Pure Gift of God has graciously extended this resource as a way to bring in funding for those final fees. They have agreed to match $2,500 in donations, for a total of $5,000! That means any donation made to this campaign will be doubled! We are grateful for this support and excited to finally become a family of three!
