The Story

We are adopting domestically and are excited for you to join us on this amazing journey!

Our Story:
After getting married in 2014, we started trying to grow our family and have been faced with many hurdles.  We have had two devastating miscarriages and have tried several unsuccessful fertility drugs.  After taking a break and discussing our options, we felt that we were being steered towards adoption.  This decision was a fairly easy and obvious choice, as it does not matter which avenue we take to become parents, but that in the end, we have a child to love and provide for.  We are currently partnered with Christian Adoption Consultants in the hopes that they will help guide us throughout this whole process and match us with an expectant birth mother sooner rather than later. 
The one unfortunate part about adoption is the cost.  It is ridiculously expensive and that prohibits many deserving families from pursuing it. The costs and fees associated with the complete adoption process are astronomical.  In a perfect world, we would not need to ask for help.  Believe us when we say we would love to do this on our own, but it has become increasingly clear that we need the help of our family and friends to make this dream come true.  It is extremely uncomfortable and humbling to ask for financial assistance, but we like to think of it as becoming part of our story and our future child's story. We will forever be grateful and our child will know how each and every person helped with bringing him or her home.
How To Help:
We have a 252-piece puzzle that was designed for our adoption (pictures above).  Each puzzle piece can be purchased for a $25 donation. There is no limit or "correct" way to purchase a piece - buy one, a few, or go in with a friend! Your name will be written on the back of your puzzle piece.  Once our puzzle is complete, it will be placed in a double-sided frame and hung in Baby B's nursery as a constant reminder of the love and community that helped bring him or her home!
*If you are unable to make a donation at this time*
You can still help by sharing our YouCaring link and our Facebook page on social media with your family and friends. The more people we reach, the wider our search for Baby B will grow!
We also ask for your PRAYERS!  Please pray for our journey, that it be a smooth one without complications and for the birth mother, who will be making the most selfless decision possible. We would not be given the opportunity to adopt without their sacrifice. Please pray for our future baby and that the pregnancy will be a healthy one. Pray that God's influence will help all those considering adoption to make the best possible choices for the unborn babies.
Thank you for your continued support throughout this exciting time in our lives.  We are so thankful that you have decided to join us on this journey and can't wait for you to meet Baby B!  Please "Like" and follow our Facebook page, Adopting Baby Barnett, for updates on our process!

Love,
Matt and Kaylin
