After many agonizing months Dave & I are overjoyed to share the news that we have decided to expand our family through adoption. But we need your help, the adoption process is incredibly expensive ($20,000+). We will be doing some fundraising to help with these costs. I will post the fundraisers on this page. We greatly appreciate your support, we couldn’t do it without you. Please help make all our dreams come true!
We have purchased a jigsaw puzzle, pictured below. Each piece can be “donated” for $10. Each person who donates $10 will have their name written on the back of a puzzle piece. Another option is to donate several pieces and write a message on them. The pieces are not very big so this would have to be 1-2 words per piece.
The puzzle will be assembled one piece at a time, as donations come in. When it is complete we will have it framed with glass on both sides. This way we will always be able to remember the friends, family and caring strangers that helped us fulfill our dreams and expand our family.

After you’ve made your donation please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name or message you’d like on your puzzle pieces.
