Help Us Adopt Organization

Guest Author - Brandii Lacey

One challenge when it comes to adopting a child is money. For example, there are attorney fees, agency fees, travel fees, home study fees and paperwork fees just to name a few. It is devastating to want to bring a child into your family, but not being able to afford the process to do so.

Many people hold fundraisers to help offset the costs of the adoption process. Others may sell personal property, or take on another job. However, there’s another adoption that potential adoptive parents need to be aware of. Helpus adopt.org is a non-profit organization offering hope and help to adoptive families.

Becky and Kipp Fawcett learned about the costs of adoption, after experiencing the high costs of infertility treatments. They decided to do something about it, and that’s when “Helpusadopt.org” was born.

According to their website, the organization is a “non-profit 501(c)3 financial grant program that helps couples/individuals (regardless of race, religion, marital status or sexual preference) with their adoption expenses by awarding financial grants from $500 - $15,000.”

Grants are made possible through generous donations to the organization, fundraisers, and through special “Help Us Adopt” merchandise available through their website.

Helpusadopt.org provides grants of up to 15,000 to prospective adoptive parents. Grants are awarded twice yearly. The next grants will be awarded in June 2011, and is expected to total $50,000 for prospective adoptive families.

The Fawcetts are an amazing example of hope, inspiration and determination to make a difference in the lives of countless families. Additionally, this organization doesn’t discriminate based on one single thing. While some adoption grant organizations have strict limitations on who is eligible for financial assistance, this organization is open to everyone.

Helpusadopt.org is hosting a special event on Thursday March 3, 2011 at 6:00 pm at Neiman Marcus in King of Prussia, PA. It’s a great way to have a fun time with family and friends, while supporting an amazing cause. For more information on this event and organization, visit their website at Helpusadopt.org.
