On July 28, 2015, we had Jack placed with us due to his mother being unable to care for him. We instantly fell in love with him!
He has became such an important part of our lives and cannot imagine what life would be like without him. We obtained full custody of him in October of 2015. Our goal has always been to adopt Jack, however, the fees and unknown have led us to put off retaining an attorney. Today, January 11, 2017, we took the next step and retained an attorney to help.
As we expected, the fees are astronomical and we have received no assistance from the state or the birth parents since we are not blood relatives and since he did not go into the Foster Care system. Our plea to our friends and family is to PLEASE share with anyone you know that has a heart for adoption and may be capable of helping us. We have plans to try to do some fundraisers with so tangible items. However, if you have the ability to help us $5 and $10 goes a long way to helping us with this goal that seems almost unattainable.
