Adoption is something we talked about prior to getting married as a high value for our family, so when Katie was told she could not have biological children due to cancer in 2017, although that was incredibly heartbreaking, it did not change our desire for a family. It just put our hope of adoption into play faster than we originally thought.
As of August 21, We are now officially a MATCHED FAMILY going to pick up our baby girl in Kentucky!!!
The total cost of the adoption is $30,125.
We are so excited to be on this journey and are so thankful for the support of family and friends like you! Through AdoptionBridge.org, we hope to alleviate some of the financial burden associated with the adoption process. Thank you SO MUCH for considering giving toward bringing a future baby home!
-Katie & Jason

I am so excited for you guys!!!! Can’t wait to meet sweet baby girl!!
You two are going to be wonderful parents, your family is growing and this little girl is going to have so much love around her. From you, from your families, from your friends. She's going to grow up with well and loved, and that's the best someone can give to a child. One of my close friends was adopted out of Louisville, Kentucky and she's a handful. I'd imagine you can expect the same :)
We’re so excited for your new family and can’t wait to walk through this journey with you!
