Doug and Heike Riddle

are adopting a child from India

We are so excited to be adopting a little girl from India! Currently, we are home study approved and registered with the Central Adoption Resource Authority in India (CARA). We have initial approval from CARA and USCIS and are now matched with a precious little girl! We are madly working on paperwork to bring her home!

It may (or may not) be surprising to hear that adoption related costs can easily total up to $35,000 or more. This is why we have set this account up if you would like to help ease the financial burden that is often overwhelming.

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 she grows up.

    We are matched with a precious little girl! She has some limb differences and she is beautiful! We can't wait to get her home! We are currently madly working on paperwork and praying that the approvals get processed quickly-esp. through India.

    Thanks so much for all your support, we can't wait to be done with this process and get to introduce you to our new little family member!

    Thanks again so much for all your prayers and donations! We have initial approval now from India and US customs and are waiting to be matched! Please pray with us that God will give us wisdom in knowing whether to say yes or no to the file (or files) we are presented with.

    So thankful for all of you and will keep you updated!

    Love, Heike for us all
