We have BIG news!

We are adopting a child!

After 3 years of fertility treatments and 4 miscarriages, Bill and I are thrilled to announce that we are moving forward with this new journey of adoption! We have plowed through the paperwork as quickly as possible because we are ready to realize our dream of finally becoming parents. We cannot wait to welcome a child home, and we want all of our friends and family to be a part of this dream and help us Meet Melanibaby! 🙂 We are beyond excited and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a beautiful new life into our home.

We have tons of fundraising ideas coming in the future, so be on the lookout for those invitations. But, since most of our family members are spread out across the country, we want to give you all an opportunity to help us find the financial means to bring home our child. As part of our adoption fundraising 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 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!

Hello to all our friends and family!! We are officially one month into the waiting process. and wanted to share an update! At this point, we are simply waiting for our book to be shown, our birth mom to choose us, and our family to grow. This will likely be a long period of waiting, so we continue to pray over our birth mom and future child; for her to be filled with peace of her decision and for our child to be born healthy and whole. We pray with thanksgiving for all the support you have shown us, each and every one of you. And we pray for patience for ourselves and to be filled with calm during this time of wait.

I have lowered the amount we need to raise on this fundraiser to take into account the TWO wildly successful fundraisers that our family and friends blessed us with, as well as some private donations that we have received from others. We want to let each and every one of you know that this simply WOULD NOT be possible without the abundant generosity that we have seen from our village.

WE ARE HOMESTUDY APPROVED!!! We are officially approved as a family waiting to adopt, we know who our caseworker will be, and as soon as we get our first meeting with her we will create our profile book. After that step we will be Paperwork Complete and will be considered a Waiting Family with the Gladney Agency!

Recently some wonderful friends of ours hosted a fundraiser for Baby Melaniphy, and it was wildly successful! We raised about $2000 in cash and checks, and are beyond grateful to everyone who has supported us so far!

Coming soon, in the fall, with the cooler weather, we will host another fundraiser at our home for those that were unable to attend the first event and are planning a garage sale! So, save everything from your cleanouts... you know what they say; one man's trash is another man's treasure!

We attended our orientation at the Gladney Center on Friday, May 19, 2017. We went into the day pretty sure that we knew this was what we wanted to do, but by the end of the day were positive! The Gladney Center ignited in us a passion and a resolve that we WOULD become parents and we can do whatever it takes to reach our goal!

Our first goal will be 25% of our adoption fee that must be paid to Gladney by Monday, June 19th. That number is $9,375. This initial payment will allow us to initiate a homestudy and is the first step (other than all the paperwork!) to officially joining the ranks of Gladney Waiting Families!
