In 2009, after only a couple months of marriage, we were told we would never be able to have children. Despite this news, we kept trying. Over the following four years, we had 5 different doctors, 8 miscarriages, and countless failed fertility treatments. In 2013 we agreed that our next treatment would be our last, and with our final attempt, we were miraculously able to get and stay pregnant with our amazing daughter Emi. Since her birth in 2014, we have experienced another two losses and have decided that now is the time to pursue adoption. Though we have always planned on adopting, we are now depending on it to grow our family.
Adoptions is very expensive, and can cost anywhere from $25,000-$40,000. This can put dreams of a family out of reach for a lot of couples, us included. To help offset the cost, we have been picking up extra work, applying for grants, and doing everything we can to cut back and save money.
We are so excited to announce that we have been blessed with a $2,000 matching grant from Pure Gift of God! We ask that you consider joining us in our journey by helping us reach our goal! Your gifts will be matched up to $2,000, and will be tax deductible. *please note: All donations over the $2,000 goal will not go to us, but will go towards Pure Gift of God’s general adoption fund to help other families adopt.*
Thank you so much for all of your love and support!
-John, Lindsey, Emi, and future baby!
