Well, folks, the time has come. We’ve tried to look at things from just about every angle and it boils down to this: we need your help.
We’re not thrilled about the fact that we have to ask for help but really feel that this is a “takes a village” sort of thing. And to that end, we’ve created a crowd funding campaign to help us fund the renovations that need to be done in the attic to give the kids some permanent living space. Our goal is to build it out to be a four bedroom, two bath expansion.
Currently, we are registered with an agency and going through the training to go through a foster to adopt process so that we can take in an additional three or more children. We have the room to handle it in this house but we simply don’t have “the rooms” to do it.
So, with that said, please go to the crowd fund campaign we’ve started and if you’re so moved, feel free to contribute. We know there are about a million other good causes out there, too, so it may be tough but know that every cent contributed will go to the expansion and to benefit the kids.
Attic Construction Fund
Want to pitch in to help us build out the attic? Construction is currently underway to add four bedrooms and two baths so that we can take in another set of siblings (either three or four kids). Sibling groups are the hardest to place and we are passionate about keeping these groups together when the parental rights have been terminated with their biological parents. Adding these rooms will bring our house to a total of 11 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
The total estimate for this project is $140,000 and we have already paid for all but about $20,000. The project is now slated to be completed by Mid-November assuming there are no more delays. Through our Tilt Campaign, you have already donated about $7,800.00 (THANKS!).
