We started the adoption process back in 2017 – and we already can’t believe how fast time has flown since! Here’s a short version of our story:

Dear Family and Friends,

We would like to introduce you to a very special little person – Baby Brooks.

We do not know him/her yet, but we are in the process of adopting from Catholic Charities, TN. What we do know is this: He/she needs a loving family, and with your help, we can provide this.

We cannot wait to bring our little one home, to hold him/her in our arms, and always provide a hand for him/her to hold as he/she grows. No words can capture the true joy and excitement we feel as we anticipate the blessing of his/her presence in our home.

We would like to invite you to be a part of our adoption, both by praying for our child, and by giving financially. We have two fundraising goals, the first is to create a community of friends and family both locally and globally, who are ready and excited to welcome our child into their lives as our son/daughter. A community that will pray for, support, and encourage our child throughout his/her lifetime (not just during the months that we spend adopting him/her). Our other goal is $15,000 to bring him/her home.

We trust that God will provide the funds needed to complete this adoption, and one way may be through people like you. With that in mind, we ask that you prayerfully consider donating to our adoption fund ( https://www.gofundme.com/manage/baby-brooks-it-takes-a-villiage ).

Please take a moment of your time to visit our blog as well. In our blog is a chart of the various costs of adoption that we need to be prepared for, which will help you to see where are $15,000 cost is coming from.

Please contact us if you have any questions, need alternative methods of contribution, or would just like to chat. We would absolutely love to hear from each and every one of you!

Thank you for taking the time to let us share our journey with you.

Sincerely,

Corey & Valerie Brooks
