The Story

We started our process for our second adoption in 2013 and just got on the waiting family list in April. On April 20th we recieved a call that a birth mother picked us to adopt her son that was born on April 19th and we will pick him up and welcome him into our family in a few days! We've been saving towards our next payment but since it was so sudden we haven't been able to come up with it yet. We still need to raise our placement fees of $12,000, so far we've paid the initial $6500 in fees. You can read our entire story on http://www.alinkadoption.blogspot.com

Thank you so much for all of those that have supported us through this adoption! It's been almost 3 months since we brough Josiah home and he is the happiest little boy. Always smiling and giggling. He's fit into our family like a missing puzzle piece! His big brother is always concerned with how he is doing and has been a great helper.

We raised just over $7000 for his adoption and our local bank graciously gave us a loan to cover the rest of the amount. If you are interested in helping us remove this extra debt from our finances you can email us at [email protected] Although our income situtation has changed suddenly in the last month we've still been trying to work extra jobs to pay off this debt.

We feel so blessed by all the support we have recieved and Josiah is now legally free for adoption (it takes about 2 months from birth) and we are in the process of setting up our court date for October (6 month waiting period). Although he is already very much a part of our family we are anticipating this day when he will legally become a member of the Alink family.

We've shared our joy of adoption with so many and have been approched with a great many questions about the adoption process from other interested individuals. This is such an amazing high calling and we feel honored to help in the process of any family match, even if it's just encouragement for their journey.

Thank you again for being part of our adoption journey. Your donation means more to us than you will ever know!

Today is the last day of our fundraiser! We've had amazing support so far and been able to raise over 50% of our total needed. 

Baby boy is doing well and he's been with us for a week already! Today we are headed to another doctors appointment to make sure he is still healthy and growing well. He's had a little trouble with sleeping the last few days so we think there is some kind of growth spurt going on!

Please share our fundraiser today if possible to help us reach our goals!

We are back home and settling back in this week. Everyone is doing well although we are still trying to wrap our brains around the whole thing! Baby is healthy and seems happy and has another doctors appointment on Wednesday. He loves his swing and being swaddled!
