We Will Be Forever Thankful

Read a thank you letter from an adoptive family who received an adoption grant from Holt’s Families Not Finances program!

To our generous donors,

With grateful hearts we would like to extend our thanks to each and everyone one of you who made the Special Needs Grant possible for our family! We are currently a family of four with two little girls, soon to be family of five with one little girl in Taiwan!

Adoption has always been a part of our lives as we have many family members who have joined our family through adoption. Adoption has always been a dream of ours and we knew we wanted to pursue it sooner than later in our marriage. When we submitted our adoption application in December of 2020, we had no idea what was ahead of us, but we were so excited to be on this journey.

Although she has many unknowns in her diagnosis, we felt wholeheartedly that she was the one for us.

In September of 2021, I had a strong desire to look at the waiting child photolisting on the Holt website. It was then that we saw her sweet little face. Although she has many unknowns in her diagnosis, we felt wholeheartedly that she was the one for us.

On March 2nd (It was March 3 in her time zone, which is her birthday!) we received word that we were officially accepted by her agency and we could begin the paperwork to bring her home!

Your generosity has taken a significant

burden off of us as we continue to

meet our financial obligations.

We are now in the process of more paperwork and waiting periods as well as paying all of our adoption fees. In the meantime, we have been setting up and decorating a bedroom that she can call her own, preparing and educating our girls for their “sissy’s” arrival and enjoying every minute of our monthly Skype calls with her!

Your generosity has taken a significant burden off of us as we continue to meet our financial obligations. We will be forever thankful for this generous gift as you have helped to bring us together as a family of five!

Warmly,
Kevin, Julia, Addy & Anna
