Hello everyone, After many years of trying to conceive and numerous medical treatments, we realized that our journey to become parents will be different than what we imagined. The heartbreaks we have been through didn't stop us from wanting to be parents; the love we have to give is leading us forward. We both have loved ones in our families that were brought to us through adoption. It's something we already value and see as a good and positive choice. Since God has not brought a child into our lives through the "old-fashioned way," we believe He has a different plan for us. The costs for adoption are immense and we have found it challenging to keep up. We are seeking financial help from anyone and everyone, so we can finally have a baby in our home, in our lives, and in our arms. We sincerely are grateful for any kind of support you are willing to share. God Bless, Christopher and Elena Hoops
We are in Kentucky and we have met our son and we adore him.
Please pray for his mom and her family and that the transition and legal proceedings smoothly.
We made it home last night. Alexander got to meet his grandma for the first time and the two were in love! We are so grateful for the donations we received so far. Please share our donations page regularly and to as wide of a group you can, so we can meet our expenses.
The amount says $10,000, but in reality, we will be about $35,000 all in. We will need to pay about $21,000 in the next 10 days. So please, donate if you can!
I am very excited for you two! This will be a hard and wild ride but it will be ssssooooo worth it in the end!! I wish you both all the luck in the world through this amazing journey!
You guys will make great parents. Good luck!
Blessings from a fellow Orthodox Christian in California. :)
Wish you guys the best of luck.
This is such a great cause and I really want this to work out for you both.
I wanted to see you guys get 10% of your goal so this is the reason why I donated twice. Plus, I want in on this time share option you got going with the future Robert Jr ( yes he will be named after me) :)
Love you both, prayers for this journey!
Because of parents like you the future of the kids will be bright ????
Did I win yet?
We wish you all the best in the journey! -Miles and Emily
