Todd & Mary Therese Tranausky

are adopting a child from United States of America

We are adopting!

Life has been a bit nuts lately. Katarina is now 2.5 years old and is begging for a baby sibling. However, secondary infertility is making that much harder than we had hoped. We always hoped and prayed for a large family. So, adoption seems to be the path that God is asking us to take to grow our family.

The adoption process is expensive (an understatement!!) - we are estimating $45,000 at least for agency fees, birthmother expenses, and lawyer fees. We had our home study in early August, were approved a week later, and since then have been waiting to be matched with an expectant mom. We will likely be matched with an expectant mom in the Houston area, although the placement could be out of state. We are eager to take the next steps as we continue to save to come up with the remaining costs, especially after dealing with some medical expenses lately.

If you would like to donate to help us bring a baby into our family, we would be so very grateful. We are trying to raise $25,000. Donations on this site are tax deductible and eligible for most corporate matching programs. Thank you so much for your consideration and your generosity!

Katarina is always asking Jesus for "new baby to get baptized!" She is so ready to be a big sister, and we can't wait to watch her love on the new little one. Thank you for helping us bring Baby Tranausky home!
