THE KOLBYS ARE ADOPTING A BABY!
We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to prepare and 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. These fees cover the following approximate costs:
- Home Study Fee = $1,500
- Documentation Preparation and Authentication = $1,000
- Adoption Agency Application and Program Fees = $22,500
- Adoption Consultant Fees = $1,000
- Attorney Fees = $1,500
- Agency Community Outreach = $500
- Birth Family Counseling = $1,000
- Birth Mother Expenses = $3,000
- Post-Placement Expenses = $500
- Post-Adoption Support = $2,500
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.
With joyful anticipation,
Jeb and Shelbie
Our adoption just got updated to Home at Last by Shelbie Kolby
We have a successful placement! Sweet Niyah Allyn is a beautiful baby girl who was able to celebrate her second birthday with us. We provided respite care for her for a few weeks before being able to sign adoption placement papers for her with her birth mothers blessing on her actual birthday. Such a sweet and monumental day. The emotional impact has not been lost on us.
We are all adjusting and coping well. It seems intentional time together and quality alone time has its place for us all. God is good and His ways are perfect. His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness!!
