A Few New Adoption Situations - November 4

Happy Adoption Month to you all:) I love that there's an entire month dedicated to celebrating the miracle of adoption. I've found in the last few days that not only am I celebrating my daughter's birth, but I'm also praying more often for her birth family and holding them close in my heart as I remember what they went through to give our daughter life! We've been looking at the life book we made about our journey and it's amazing how that opens the doors for conversation - I worried so much about how to talk to our daughter about all of this, but it's awesome how natural it comes when it's part of your daily life and something you're proud of as a family! How are you celebrating Adoption Month? :)

The following are a few situations available to our clients from the agencies we work with:

Caucasian baby unknown gender due in Jan. Agency fees of 23,000 plus legal and 5K in expenses to mom

Caucasian/Hispanic baby unknown gender due Dec. 25 Agency fees of 23,000 plus legal and 5K in expenses to mom

African American baby girl due in UT on Dec. 25 Agency fees of 16,500 plus full medical (5-7K)
