The Barnes Adoption Story

In September of 2014 the lives of my wife and I changed forever! That's when we found out that one of my relatives wanted to place her child for adoption and that we were her top choice! We were able to be a part of the pregnancy and to be there at the hospital during labor and delivery.

Our little man, Jude Myron Barnes, was born on January 21, 2015 and we've been with him every second of his life since then! We set up our Continue To Give fundraiser to help us offset the many costs of adoption. There are legal fees and social workers fees in two states. Then there are the fees associated with an interstate adoption. And, lastly, there are the numerous fees that go into the adoption finalization process. Add to all of this the financial complication of paternity leave and you get a very tight situation.

But thanks to the generosity of so many of our friends and family can see the finish line! We just have a few final steps to go! Thanks so much for the time you took to read this and our family truly appreciates your support in whatever form it my come (prayers, encouragement, babysitting, and/or donations).

Thanks a million!

Matt, Alida, and Jude Myron Barnes
