Fundraising a Family

Hiya folks. I know this isn't book or paranormal related, but I wanted to share this with you.

My husband and I have been trying to start a family for over four years with no luck. (Those hands in the picture are ours-mine is the incredibly pale one!) We need the help of a specialist, and we plan on adopting at some point anyway, so we need help getting our family started, one way or another.

That's why I started this fundraiser. It's not a cry for help for something we could afford ourselves. It's not entirely selfish-we plan to foster-to-adopt, rather than pay someone to have a baby for us. It's something that means so much to my husband and me, but we just can't do it ourselves. Fertility specialists are expensive, and adoption is often even more. While we'd love to have a child on our own, we also want to adopt anyway. See, Andy was adopted, and without his parents having the heart to take him in and bring him to the US from Korea, I would never have met my soulmate. I owe them so much for bringing him into my life, and we've decided to pay that forward. While international adoption is just outside of our means, we plan to adopt a child who needs a loving home. We're going to try for our own first, but in the end, we plan to adopt.

So, in light of this, I am posting this today and asking your help in becoming a family. There are multiple reward levels, many of which will include photos or books, and a few that include both. We're asking everyone to help us become the family we've always wanted either by supporting our fundraiser or sharing it with others who might be able to help. Or both. We welcome both, too. :)

Thank you all for listening and for any support you may offer us.

With love and insanity,
