Help us adopt our baby daughter!

Please help our dream come true! We (Dan & Lyn Jameyson) were blessed beyond measure with the adoption of our amazing son Ronan in 2005. Now we dream of the day when we will complete our family with a newborn baby girl. To make this happen, we will need to raise at least $23,000:

Application Fee: $100

Home Study: $1700

Criminal Record Check: $100

Agency Contract Fee: $2500

Match Fee: $1000 (this will be duplicated if we have to be matched more than once!)

Acceptance Fee: $3000

Attorney Fee (us): $2000 (could be more)

Attorney Fee (birth family): $4000 (appx.)

Birthparent Living Expenses: $3000 (could be more)

Birthmother Medical: $600 (could be more)

Birth Family Counseling: $1500 (could vary)

Finalization Fees: $2500 (could be more)

Travel/Food/Lodging: $1000 (wild guess; depends on which state baby will be born in)

 

Unfortunately, the total of these fees comes to more than 50% of our annual take-home pay. Needless to say, we will need the help of our family and friends to make this dream a reality. So far we have saved $4500 of our own money to put toward the adoption costs, and we continue to add as much as we possibly can to the fund each week.

 

We will also be holding an Adoption Benefit Concert entitled "It Takes a Village" on our 12th wedding anniversary (Sunday, September 30) at our church. More info may be found on the Events tab above. Some families hold garage sales or spaghetti dinners to raise funds for their adoptions; our hope is that our concert and this crowd-funding page will lead us to our goal. Please consider a gift to our adoption fund; ANY amount--no matter how small or large--will be gratefully accepted and appreciated. Every dollar donated brings us one step closer to a baby in our arms and a sister for Ronan!

 

Even if you are unable to donate financially, you can still help us by using Facebook, Twitter and email to spread the word. And you can keep us in your prayers and send positive thoughts our way as we embark on this journey to complete our family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
