Posted on November 23, 2016We are still dumbfounded by the outpouring of support in our journey to Sammy's sibling. We are $5010 from our original goal on Youcaring and with offline donations we are only $4170 from our first goal. We still have a long way to go before February but praying for some grants and big fundraisers coming in December and January. We have some ideas brewing. We are starting with a LuLaRoe fundraiser happening online this Sunday (11/27).
We have a lot to be thandful for this season. Your support is just the start.
All our love,
The Snyder Crew

Posted on November 18, 2016It takes a village is how the saying goes...and while we reached one milestone in our fundraising but we still need help. This week has been crazy. Starting with getting the most unexpected call on Sunday that our sweet baby boy's first mama is pregnant again and wanted to know if we would consider adopting this biological sibling. Have you seen our boy? He is (to us) perfection and bringing a sibling in to our family that shares his DNA when we never thought that would happen...of course we will put our yes on the table.
Our story is one for the books...we have lost more money with 2 failed matches than I would like to think about. We have enough for this adoption tied up with another agency that hasn't been able to match us in almost 2 years and won't refund our money. Money...ugh. It shouldn't matter but in the adoption world it does and we need a village to help us raise these funds to allow us to bring home Sammy's biological sibling in February. We are thankful for almost 850 shares on Facebook and other avenues and the prayers and the people that have rallied around us. Please keep sharing our story. Praying that pieces fall into place and God moves the rest of these mountains we believe He will.

Posted on November 16, 2016Hi all! A quick update...thanks to the generous donations through Youcaring and off line on top of our adoption savings from previous fundraisers we have just enough for this installment to go through with the adoption of our Sammy's sibling but we still need help!!! Please keep sharing our story and spreading the word. Any donation is a huge help to bringing home a biological sibling in February. We still have a long way to go. This is fully God working and we are humbled by the outpouring of love for our little family.
