Two Mommies are Better than One!
Organized by: Mysti Niermann
As is probably a surprise to no one, the legal system does not make it very easy for two moms when deciding to start a family. What may be surprising is JUST how expensive the whole process is to ensure that our family enjoys all the legal rights, responsibilities, and protections afforded to any other (heterosexual) family. All we want is to make sure that Danielle can adopt our baby boy when I give birth in August! Luckily, we found a great and experienced lawyer who is working with us to minimize costs, but we will definitely need all the help we can get making this second parent adoption a reality, and making sure that Oliver is going to have two loving legal mommies!
If you would rather make a cash donation, just contact me at email@example.com and we can set something up, or you can bring the money to one of our summer baby showers. You can also send or bring a check, OR pay via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org (that option is pretty awesome).
*UPDATE* - Taking into account the donations we've gotten via check and PayPal thus far, I have reduced the funraising goal to better reflect our progress and the distance we have left to go!
