Hello to all of my readers. Once again, I am posting something that is not a plug for Etsy. This one is much more important to me, and closer to my heart, than Etsy. Sorry! I really like Etsy, but I LOVE babies.
We have been put in the running as a family waiting to adopt a precious little baby. The baby is due to be born in February, and we have spoken to the birth mom twice now. We will be meeting with her sometime this week so that she can get to know our little family and see if we will be a great family for her precious little gift.
One of the things that comes with having children is the added financial need, and with adoption, it is no different; sometimes it is even more costly. This birth mom is going through an established adoption agency/attorney. She will not have to pay for anything while going through this process. We, however, will be responsible for roughly 1/3 of the costs involved. As some of you may know adoption costs, including lawyer fees can really stack up.
We are trying to put aside some money for our part of things, regardless of whether this particular birth mom chooses us or not. You may have noticed the advertisements on the bottom right of this blog. We are able to make a little commission when you click through to these shops and purchase something from them. We will be adding a few more as we are able. We will be taking all commissions made from these shops and putting them in our "Adoption Fund". Thank you so much for helping us out! We really appreciate your generosity!
Have a blessed day!
