Molina Family Adoption
is adopting from United States
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 $40,000 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. It truly takes a village to raise a child, and we hope that you will join us in forming our village that will raise our child to be a loved and cherished member of our family.
While we are just starting this journey, we hope to continue to update you on the progress as we embark on this adventure. #ittakesavillage #BabyMolina
Home Study approved! by Amanda Molina
As of April 4th, we are officially home study approved! Now we just have to submit our next payment ($23,500.00) and create our profile book to go active with our agency. Our adoption loan just went through, so minus that and other funding, we currently need about $6,000 of this payment left. We have a garage sale this weekend and we pray for giving hearts to get us closer to making the rest of this payment. Please pray that we get closer to this payment.
Our adoption just got updated to Paperwork Complete by Amanda Molina
We are done with our home study!!!! Woohoo!!! We now wait to get in contact with our assigned social worker who will help us develop our book and move to active status. We have a payment due this month that we have most of it in an adoption loan set up but we still need almost $6000 for it. We are having a garage sale next week in North Dallas and hope to raise at least a few thousand through the fundraiser. If you have anything you’d like to donate, please let us know.
Our adoption just got updated to Paperwork In Process by Amanda Molina
Good evening everyone! So much as been going on in the last month or so. Wyatt and I have been chipping away at all our paperwork and as of tomorrow, we will have the last piece of paperwork completed for Gladney. I am getting my fingerprints done tomorrow and then uploading them to our online portal. We will be moving into the home study next month. Our agency notified us that our next payment will be due at the completion of the home study which they estimate to take about a month. We will have 30 days after the home study is complete to make the payment of $23,500. We have already applied for an adoption loan and have a little more than half of this amount already. We will still need $10,000 out of the $23,500 and then our last payment ($11,700) will not be due until we are matched with an expectant mother. It has become much more important for us to fundraise as much as we can to meet these goals. Tonight we will open a t-shirt fundraiser with Bonfire and we will soon host garage sales at both of our parents' homes in Richardson and Lubbock to help raise the funds we need to bring Baby Molina home. Thank you to everyone that has helped in some way so far. We plan to request funds from our crowdfund here to help with our next payment.
