****************************************************************************************************************

We, John and Hailey Dunne, are adopting! We don't know who this child will be, but we have so much love for her (or him) already! Read on to learn more about our story, and how we ended up here...

Some time ago, we decided we were ready to have a baby. We tried and waited, and waited, and waited some more, and it didn't happen. This was hard, because all the while people we love around us added babies to their families, and we were happy for them, but our longing grew and our hearts ached. After a while I talked to my medical provider, and she referred us for some basic tests. Thus began a string of bad news. With every test, and every next step, and every anxious wait, we hoped for hope. But then one January day another test result dealt the final and fatal blow in the hope for having children that would be biologically ours. We mourned this loss. We waded through grief. Thankfully, we were not alone. Family, friends, colleagues, and our community supported us, and loved us. You can read more about that in this blog post Hailey wrote. 

Eventually somewhere in the darkness, a sliver of hope appeared softly, like a door cracking open in a black hallway. It widened and brightened until we saw that there was another way, another room that we could go to. This room looked ok, it was warm with light. The more we looked at it, the more beautiful we found it. Then I had a dream about finding a baby in this room. This hope, this light, was the promise of adoption. 

We don't know who this child will be, but we love her (or him) so much already.

Adoption has a cost. It is expensive. There are different ways to do it, and different cost structures, but it comes down to the fact that it involves peoples' lives and big sacrifices. It involves lots of people working together with different agencies and families to ensure the best possible outcome for all involved. And we need some help. In addition to crowd sourcing and other creative fundraising, we are saving in a special bank account, working to get our finances ready, and we can also apply for grants and look into adoption loans.

We are currently working with an adoption agency, so as we work on paperwork (so much paperwork), and get the resources together, wait with us, help us if you can, pray for us, send us your best juju, and follow along to find out with us just how much adoption rocks!
