Paige, Sean & Aria
There is nothing in my life that I have wanted more than to be a mother and when I couldn’t have children I was devastated. When I started looking at adoption I couldn’t believe the financial costs that came with it. The adoption process was a long and crazy journey but I will never forget the day I got the call not only for our match but for this grant. I cried at both.
Words cannot even begin to describe what Helpusadopt.org has done for us. I applied for the grant the first time and was denied. My heart was broken and we saw our dream slipping away. I applied again and was granted $9,000 which was able to make our final agency fee and help our birthmother with some of her additional expenses. The money assisted and eased our birthmother’s financial burden as it also did for us. We will be forever grateful and appreciative of Helpusadopt.org. I will also be eternally grateful to Nia Vardalos for tweeting me several times and telling to apply for this grant.
I truly believe everything that happened was meant to be and I can’t imagine being a mother to any other child. Adoption has been one of the best things I have done in my life.
