The Story

The Meiklejohn family is adopting!!!
To read more about our journey, see our blog. http://lattesandsunshine.blogspot.com/
We are on a journey to adopt a little girl and a baby boy from Africa as God has called us to do. We've already had several fees to pay for: our application, two different adoption agencies, home study, fingerprinting, passport renewals, investigations, referrals, attorneys, etc. and we have more fees due very soon because we leave in June for our court date! Several of you have already asked us how you can help, and this is it! The international adoption process is very expensive, especially adopting two children at once. We have to pay country fees, travel & flight fees, more agency fees... the costs really add up. Our total costs are estimated to be around $40,000.
If you make a donation through this page, we will write your name on a puzzle piece. Once we have all the puzzle pieces claimed, we will assemble the puzzle and put it in a clear double sided frame so we can see our completed puzzle as well as all the names of the people who have had contributed to our adoption.
All donations go directly into our separate adoption savings account.
Our growing family would really appreciate your donation. Thank you for being a piece of our journey!

On our way to Uganda for the 5th time - we're bringing baby A home! Still waiting on R's case to catch up.

UPDATE - we are still waiting for Raziya & Adanijah to come home! After court last June and July 2016, we've run into many roadblocks including missing paperwork and documents and other random delays. We are still praying them home! In February 2017 we got to go visit them for just a couple days and to take care of a small detail in the adoption. We have now taken 4 trips to Uganda and have 1-2+ trips left to go. We don't know when they'll be home but we are praying fervently! All the delays has cost us extra money, not just time. So we are still raising money for as long as we can. Thank you for your support!

We have had court for both A and R and the judge granted guardianship for baby A! We are still waiting for the ruling from the judge for R. Due to having two separate court dates for the children, we've made two unexpected trips to Uganda (on our second trip we went for R's court date and it was pushed back 12 days so we had to come right back home and fly back the next week) so we've had extra added expenses. Since June 15 we have flown nearly 60,000 miles, been on 16 different planes and taken 3 round trips. We have a lot left to do before we can bring A and R home: passports, visas, paperwork filed and approved in the US, etc. All of the waiting and flying back and forth has added to our financial need. We reached our original goal of $40,000 (WAHOO!) but have lots left to raise. We have a very large fee due in just a few days and we are about $1300 short of that fee. Please help us reach our goal! Thank you for all of your support; we couldn't do this without all of YOU! Let's bring those kids home!
