Paperwork In Process
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 $20,000 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.
Thanks for being part of this with us.
What a whirlwind! by Ashley Greeno
If you've been following our story at all on social media, you've probably seen that we are cookie making MACHINES right now. haha We made a goal to sell 10,000 cookies to help us reach our fundraising goal... and people have shown up! We never imagined it could take off like this. It have been incredible to be supported and cheered on by strangers and loved ones all over the country, and we're feeling exhausted but SO grateful! At this rate, we should reach our financial goal right around the same time as we're home study approved (fingers crossed). We submitted all of the paperwork and applications, got our fingerprints and background checks finalized... and then ran into our first glitch. We forgot to ask Courtney (who rents our basement apartment) to get her fingerprints done! Since she technically lives in the house, she's required to be approved as well. But it's all good. As soon as her's come back we're ready to set the visits! We've also made some new friends with couples that have adopted or ARE adopting like us. 🙂 It's starting to feel REAL and so exciting that next Christmas we could be sharing it with a new Greeno babe!

Thanks again for loving and supporting us through this wild ride.
Here we go! by Ashley Greeno
If you're here on this page, it's likely you already know the Greenos and the story of how we decided to adopt... but just in case you don't: HI! Thanks for being here. 🙂 We are Ashley, Hunter & Lily.
Hunter & Ashley have been married for almost 10 years and Lily is getting ready to celebrate her 7th birthday! When she was about 2 1/2 we started trying for baby #2... Lily came as a big (wonderful) surprise so we weren't sure what to think when we didn't get pregnant after awhile. After another year of tests and procedures, we ruled out lots of options and realized we have what they call "Secondary Infertility". So we looked into adoption and realized it's ($35,000+). WHAT?! So that scared us away for a bit, but we came back around and here we are. 😉
We've explored LOTS of options and domestic infant adoption felt like the best fit for growing our family. The cost is a big hurdle, but we know it will be worth it! We're looking into all kinds of "side gigs", including an in-home cookie bakery (www.tenthousandcookies.com) and we'll be setting aside as much as we possibly can from our personal savings as well. This page is intended as a spot for anyone who wants to contribute (THANK YOU in advance).
We chose AdoptTogether because it gives you an opportunity to make tax deductible gifts + we like the accountability of the organization. You can only withdraw the funds with documentation of adoption related expenses. If you have any questions about our process please reach out. We love talking about it (especially Ashley haha)!
Thank you for your love and support!
