We’ve been matched, it’s time to celebrate!!!!!!!!!

Wow, the last few days have been INCREDIBLE……  Dave and I recently found out that we have been matched with a baby boy who is due around thanksgiving.  If everything goes as planned we will be parents in 7 weeks!!!!!!! Let’s just say this went a lot faster then we thought it would.

In addition to being matched Dave and I have realized how truly blessed we are.  You always hear about the negative things people do well I’m here to say that there are some really awesome people out there.  Chris Egan took the lead and along with many people we know and amazingly several people we do not know he was able to raise 65% of the amount needed to complete our adoption.  Thank you to everyone that came to the dinner last night!  We can never truly thank you for all of the support you have given us.

Wow,7 weeks, we have so much to do to prepare and we still need your help.  We are still in need of $7,000 to bring baby Duraes home.  Please send this to everyone you know, every penny helps. We truly could not do this without all of you.
One great way to contribute is to go to our online auction @ www.32auctions.com/BabyDuraes


Amanda & Dave are Adopting!!!!

After many agonizing months we are overjoyed to share the news that we have decided to expand our family through adoption.

I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I’m able to smile again and mean it. This is a great feeling.

We know this is not going to be an easy journey but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The big question now, is how long is the tunnel?

Dave and I are ecstatic about our next step in this journey but we need your help.  The adoption process is incredibly expensive ($20,000+).  Please visit out fundraising page if you’d like to help us build our family.
