Earlier this year, we announced that we were adopting from South Korea. It's been an incredible journey marked by so much love and support along the way. As we've detailed in a variety of ways over the past few months, it's also a journey that comes with a bold, audacious and somewhat crazy price tag.
Prior to announcing, we invested a hefty portion of our savings to get off the ground. Then, once we announced, we were blown away by an incredible show of support from so many in our community. It's lifted our spirits and has brought so much joy to this young man's life — all before he is even in the United States.
In that process, an anonymous donor recently approached us to help us close the $12,000 gap. They shared that for the remainder of 2019, they will match 1:1 any donation to the cause — so that's our goal. If we can raise $6,000 before the end of the year, our adoption will be fully funded.
Couldn’t pass up the matching !! Merry Christmas 🎁

Adoption is a blessing to both parents and child. The Smith Family and Declan will be blessed by each other.

29 years ago two amazing people were born. They lived just down the road from each other and came to be great friends as their moms traded off babysitting. Today in honor of their 29th birthdays I am donating their combined ages. I sure hope Mr. Declan Smith finds a great childhood friend just as Aimee and Aaron(Ernon) did. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I chose 33, the number of weeks I waited to meet Margo and Charlie. Although very early, I was ready. My journey to become a parent started similar to your struggles becoming parents. I am beyond elated for your family to be complete!
