A quick note about fees, they can definitely be overwhelming at first.  Remember that God provides for us.  My husband and I were both teachers before Lily was born; we were in no way financially wealthy.  But, it was amazing the way money became available when we turned it over to God and trusted Him to provide for us.  There are numerous creative ways (bake sales, yard sales, benefit dinners, etc) to raise money along with grants, low-interest loans, and a helpful tax credit.  Also, while adoption is expensive, ethical agencies like the ones we work with use much of the funds for counseling, housing, medical expenses, etc. for the birthmom and the baby.  We were so thrilled to know that our daughter's birthmom received counseling both before and after her birth!  If you'd like more information about expenses or have questions, please feel free to contact me! :)

Consulting

Welcome to A Path of the Heart. Adoption has truly become a part of my heart. As the mother of a beautiful daughter through adoption, I am now thrilled to be working in the adoption field. We adopted our daughter, Lily, sixteen months ago with the help of Amy and Malcolm Young at Christian Adoption Consultants. I consider it an honor to now be working with them to help other couples adopt as quickly and safely as we did. We signed with CAC in Sept and our daughter was born April 2. Our adoption took less than six months!
I hope to use this blog to write about adoption, my experiences as a consultant, and to help others who are interested in adopting. Please feel free to contact me either by email at karalee@christianadoptionconsultants.com or at 502-442-7806. Thanks for being a part of this new journey in my life! :)
