The Story

We are on a mission to find our little one through international adoption!  We would absolutely love your support in this journey with us.   
You can follow our adoption journey, and find out what led us to adoption, on our blog yougrowinourhearts.blogspot.com.  We are so grateful for all of the support we have received through prayers and financial donations. Although we don't know who they are yet, our son or daughter is most likely living in an impoverished orphanage at this moment.  We are hopeful that the sooner we can raise the funds, the sooner we can get to him/her! Thank you for helping us to bring our little one home as soon as possible!

Our dossier was submitted to the DFC in Ukraine on April 13th!  We are now waiting for official approval and an appointment date!  We are prayerful we will be able to travel this summer. We still have quite a bit of funds to raise before then though, so are very grateful for everyone's support!  Every dollar adds up and gets us closer to being able to bring our little one HOME!

Our dossier is now in Ukraine and in the process of being translated!  We still have about $10,000 in fees that we will need to pay within the next few months, not including our travel fees once we get our travel date, so have updated our financial goal.  We are hopeful that our dossier will be accepted by Ukraine right away and they will give us a travel date within the next 2-3 months.  This means we don't have too much time to raise these funds though. If you feel led to support our adoption financially, we will be incredibly grateful for your support!  We are also so thankful for all of your thoughts and prayers as we prepare our hearts and home for our little one to arrive home. Remember to follow our blog for more updates!

It's been quite a while since we posted anything here so we're certainly overdue for an update!  Our home study was finalized earlier this month and we are now preparing our dossier (all of the paperwork that will go to Ukraine for their review).  Starting this process has been quite overwhelming as there are so many specifications with every single piece of paperwork we collect.  Everything must be notarized and apostilled which we are learning can be very difficult, expensive, and at times frustrating to do.  We are so thankful for all of the prayer and financial support we have been receiving.  Our next big expense will be sending dozens of documents to the state capital to be authenticated (with an apostille).  This will cost us $15 per document so any donations we receive in the next month will be put directly towards that.  Thank you for following our journey!  Each day gets us closer to bringing our little one home!
