When we adopted Asher, we were able to do it independently and save us a little money, but last year the U.S. passed a law that required all American citizens pursuing an international adoption to now go through an agency to adopt. So we currently have an agency, but every time we have to send money it's so hard because I feel like I could be doing this work and save money on fees. (And please don't give me the "Well, why don't you adopt domestically, then?" speech because I will tell you the "kids in other countries need forever families, too", speech. We have lots of people willing to adopt here in the States but kids in third world countries don't always have people stepping up to care for orphans. Many of them are doing good to take care of their own families. I say that in love, of course!)
So here is a list of upcoming fundraisers for our adoption. Thank you SOOO much to everyone for your support. You have no idea how much we appreciate it!
