Bera Family Adoption
We have BIG news!
We are adopting a child!
We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a beautiful new life into our home. As part of our adoption process, we have started a crowdfunding campaign. It may surprise you to hear that adoption related costs can easily total up to $35,000 or more. This is why we have set a goal of [$5,000] to help ease the financial burden that often overwhelms adoptive parents.
We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up.
The child I am trying to adopt is currently in Cedar Rapids, IA which is a 3 hour drive each way. In order for me to spend as much time with him as possible so we can move forward with the adoption I have to pay for gas and motel stays over the weekend. Although the state has limited funds available to help with these expenses, they do not cover everything. My only source of income is Social Security so funds are very tight and I will only be able to see my potential adoptive son, once or twice a month. I would like to be able to travel every weekend to spend time with him.
He has been in the foster care system for most of his life and has lived in a residential facility. He is a wonderful teen and so wants to be adopted. And, I so want to adopt him.
Any amount you can help with will be greatly appreciated.
