Daniel & Laura Scott Madden

are adopting a child from United States of America

We are so freaking excited to say: WE ARE ADOPTING!

We have always thought we would probably adopt at some point, but we feel like now is the time to proactively pursue adoption. Please join us in awaiting the arrival of a cute Madden Kiddo, whenever we get to meet his or her sweet face. We are open to adopting a kid from newborn to 6 years old, so if you know of a situation please let us know.

As exciting as this process is, we have also been shocked by the magnitude of expenses to even start the process. A friend encouraged me to openly share the financial side which can seem awkward at times, because there are lots of people passionate about adoption that would love to partner on journeys like ours. We just got approved through an agency, and are looking at a few other options as well, but it looks like this sweet kid of ours is going to cost between $35-$50K. (you're a pretty penny, kiddo!)

They say it takes a village to raise a child, and we hope that by inviting you into this process, you will see yourself as part of that community that we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up. Your donations through this page will be tax-deductible and will go directly to the adoption agency.

We are excited and thankful for our people and can't wait to meet Madden Kiddo, wherever he or she may be <3
