We both value family and love children. As high school and college sweethearts we often talked about how we would raise our children and the kind of parents we wanted to be. We both want to have a big family and a joyful home. Watching Jocelyn’s 6 nieces and nephews grow up, we had a lot of hands on experience with children of different ages. We love every minute with them! After 7 years of marriage, and several expensive and failed fertility interventions, it is clear that we cannot have our own biologic children. However, our experience loving our friends’ children and our nieces and nephews made it clear that 1) genetics is not necessary to make you family and 2) a child does not have to be biologically our own for us to love. Our child will know they were a gift to our family, shared out of deep love and courage from their biological parents. As a family, we are committed to love, respect, and accept our child, their personalities, interests, and heritage. Adoption is truly an opportunity and we are excited for this chance to be parents!

Adoption costs are quite expensive! With adoption agency costs, legal fees, travel expenses, and the variety of background checks, adoption can range between 30-40k!  Your financial help can help us achieve our goal to be parents, and we are so grateful. Thank you for your time and consideration.  

Much love, 

Eric & Jocelyn
