Adoption Fundraiser- bring Cheyenne home from China
Organized by: Linda Hamilton
EVENT DATE Jun 17, 2014
We have been waiting a very long time to adopt a little girl from China. Eight months stretched into nearly 8 years. We are now in the home stretch of the bittersweet long wait, and soon we will need to fly to China to adopt this precious little girl.
Over the years, the cost to adopt in the U.S or internationally has gone up quite a bit since we started the process. We have so many government fees to pay here in the U.S., and adoption processing fees on top of that. Within 8 weeks we will travel to People's Republic of China and will need to stay for a period of 2 weeks. Over the years we have made payments, but now we will need a large sum to complete the rest of the fee/and travel which will hit all at once. After learning fundraisers are often used to help with adoption expenses, we decided to do one too. Any small donation will help. Similar to a baby shower, we will need to get her home to the U.S. and pay for all fees in China as well. Any small help is so appreciated!
