The Story

Help us bring Our Daughter Home

Hi!! My name is Erika and I have been married to my husband, Chadd for 20 years. We have three amazing boys, Benjamin, Zachary and Jonathan!!  When Chadd and I were dating we dreamed of getting married, having two or three children and adopting. Chadd finished school, we got married, we (eventually, after years of infertility) had three children of our own… but the final piece, adopting, just never seemed to work out for us. We looked into international adoptions, local adoption agencies, foster care to adopt, it just didn’t seem meant to be. My prayer started to be, “OK Lord, if this is something that YOU want and not just something that I want then YOU will have to work it out. Clearly, I am having no success at arranging this.  So, if this is YOUR will then please have someone call us and let us know that they have or know of a little girl that needs a home.”  That became my prayer.

That takes us to this month. To a Friday night a couple weeks ago when I got a text from a friend.  “… we know a lady… pregnant… can’t keep her… do you want to adopt a baby girl?”  The answer to a prayer that had been prayed for years.  We talked to each other, we talked to our boys, we talked to God, we laughed, and cried and felt pretty much every emotion all at the same time.

We have been given the amazing privilege of adopting this sweet baby in March but adoption is not cheap and we need help bringing her home. We need over $20,000 total to complete this Christmas Miracle!! We are saving money where we can and cutting expenses. My hope is that many of you will want to be part of that miracle! If a couple thousand of you would be willing to help by donating $2, or $5, maybe you can afford $25 or more, then if you would SHARE this on social media, I think with your help we can make this miracle a reality! Whatever the amount, we would be so grateful for your help in bringing home our daughter!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!  

With Love and Gratitude,
Chadd, Erika, Ben, Zack, JT & Anneliese

It's OFFICIAL!!! We went to court last week and the adoption is finalized!! Whoot-Whoot!! I cannot put into words just HOW exciting it is to know that we are a FOREVER FAMILY!! That Anneliese is OUR DAUGHTER, to love and protect for the rest of our lives!  Thank you to ALL of you who have supported us, and if you haven't and would like to... there's still time... we haven't quite paid off all the bills just yet. Please share our page and pray for our family. God Bless & Many Thanks!! 
I LOVE this picture of her with the judge!! LOL I'm pretty sure she is asking if it's over now. She wants confirmation she is forever ours!! (ok, that could be me projecting. She might just be wondering if she could grab the judges sparkly earrings)

It has been a LONG, stressful, EXCITING year! I have added some new pictures for you to see! Anneliese was born in May in Ohio. I stayed out there with her for 3 weeks until we were allowed to cross state lines and come home. I cannot even put into words how much we LOVE this sweet girl!! She is such a blessing!! Her adoption finalizes in a week! One week!!♡ What a relief that day will be!! We are still short on money to pay the rest of her expenses. There were some last minute changes when she was born that added over $5,500 to our legal fees. The total expense now will be over $21,000. If you can help with any amount it is greatly appreciated! Please share our story on social media! Thank You & God Bless!
