are adopting a child from China

Hello friends and family!

As many of you know we have been on our adoption journey since we first saw Levi's face on our agency's advocacy page a year ago. Our journey to bring him home included hosting him in our home this summer for 2 glorious (but way too short) weeks.

Many of you bought gingerbread cookies last December to help us cover the expense of hosting and we are so thankful for that support. We also have been so encouraged by your prayers for us as there have been many ups and downs, and long waits for files, approvals, etc.

We are finally at the point in our adoption where bringing him home is on the horizon. We are beyond grateful that thus far we have been able to cover our expenses, which have totaled close to $20,000, but as we embark on the last portion of our process we would love your support financially, as we have only covered half of what our total adoption will cost.

We hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of bringing Levi home.

Any donation made will be tax deductible, which can be helpful this time of year for those looking for ways to increase charitable donations. AdoptTogether is a project of Hoping Hearts Foundation Inc, an IRS approved 501c3 organization. There is no charge for our family to create a fundraising profile. A 5% transaction cost is deducted from all donations. The 5% covers costs incurred processing credit cards and transaction costs to process checks. If you prefer to make a contribution to our family's adoption by check, you can email Darby at [email protected].

With sincere gratitude,

Justin, Darby, Morgan, Paige, and John Martin Stickler
