The Story

DREAMS COME TRUE AND LIVES CHANGE WHEN PEOPLE JOIN TOGETHER...

We are Michael (aka "Mike) and Amy Verlennich, and we met 25 years ago. We became best friends, fell crazy in love with each other, and got married two years later. Our greatest earthly treasures are our children... and we wanted more, but after 6 heart-wrenching miscarriages over 2 years (one of which I almost died from), we knew I could no longer carry a pregnancy to full-term.

Mike and I have done some pretty crazy things together and taken some big risks over the years, but when we first started looking into adoption, we realized how "impossible" the whole thing was for us to do on our own. Even though there are thousands of babies waiting to be placed with families, domestic adoption costs range anywhere from $40-50K (a seemingly HUGE mountain to climb). It would have been easy to quit before starting... but we know that anything worth having is worth fighting for... and so we kept moving forward... one step at a time... getting closer to giving two babies a family to love them unconditionally!

We've been doing everything we possibly can... but ultimately, we know that we can't make this happen alone. Running the numbers, we know that our dream to adopt twins could come true if...

  • just 5 people gave $10,000...
  • or, 10 people gave $5,000...
  • or, 20 people gave $2,500...
  • or, 40 people gave 1,250...
  • or, 80 people gave $625...
  • or, 160 people gave $333...
  • or, 300 people gave $166...
  • or, 600 people gave $83...
  • or, 1200 people gave $42...
  • or, 2400 people gave $21...
  • or, 4800 people gave just $10.50.

But, we know how God can do BIG things with very little...

  • little talent...
  • little qualifications...
  • little preparation...
  • little ability...
  • little finances...
  • and even little provision.

We're SO CLOSE to making this dream a reality, and we know AMAZING THINGS can happen when people join together in a common goal... so we are asking...

  • Would you consider giving TWO DOLLARS?
  • Would you share this link on Facebook, twitter, and Instagram and rally others to give TWO DOLLARS?
  • Would you take one step further and ask others to give TWO DOLLARS too? (from where you work, in your neighborhood, in your church, or emailing by your friends...)

We know BIG things can happen when a bunch of people decide to join with others, and we are so thankful to each and every single one of you who have joined in this adventure with us!

Thank you so much,
Amy and Michael and the rest of our family
