First and foremost we would like to thank you so much for being a part of our lives! For those of you that don't already know, we would like to add an addition to our family. We have decided to adopt an older child (7-10 years)!
The uncomfortable piece of all this is the fundraising, but we're committed to it.
Phase 1 - Training
The training is designed to teach us to become parents. To develop the skills necessary to understand the mind set of the 7-10 year old who is coming from the foster care system. The challenges he/she may have faced, and how we can help them succeed in life.
Cost $350 - $500
Adoption Application: $350 - $500
Phase 2 - Home Study
For our second phase, the plan is to save/raise the costs of the first big expense in the process, our home-study, an estimated to cost $1,500-$2,000.
Phase 3 - The Search Begins.....
At this point we will start keeping you posted and the wait begins.
Phase 4 - Placement
Phase 5 - 6 month waiting period
Phase 6 - Finalization of the adoption?lt;br />
We have a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle called Attic Treasures, which is posted here. The attic is full of interesting and fun things, but seems to be lacking one thing.
For every $15 that is donated for this fundraiser you will be contributing 1 piece to our puzzle. You can purchase as many puzzle pieces as you wish! We will then write your name on the back of each piece to symbolize your partnership in making our dreams of bringing our child home. When the puzzle is finished we will display it in a double sided glass frame in our home as a constant reminder of all the people who have helped bring our family together. 100% of funds donated will go directly to adoption expenses.
