Children have always been central to my life.  I was a babysitter, children’s musical assistant, and nanny.  I’m the oldest of 14 grandchildren, the aunt of 9, and a godmother.  I’ve taught dance, art and Sunday school.  Now I have the privilege of teaching elementary art everyday.  While I do not know if marriage is in my future, I know I am ready to be a mamma.  I believe God has lead me to this season in my life and called me to adopt.

It’s been a roller coaster ride getting to this point.  I am excited that I have been matched, and my daughter will be born this fall!  I’ve been doing lots of things to get ready: sewing, tutoring, nesting, and -you guessed it- applying for grants.  Adoption is a calling and I know God will provide a way for whatever He’s asked of His own.  But sometimes we have to put our pride aside and let Him work.  The initial cost of adoption is staggering (40 – 50,000).   It’s an awfully big speed bump to get over.  So I’m here to asking for help.

My future daughter and I are so grateful you’ve thought about our family and taken time to stop here.  If you decide to donate please know that we are beyond thankful; your help in our journey to become a family is incredible.  Either way we wish you all the best.

Sincerely,

Leigh
