Happy ICLW- Grants and Speed Dating

Hello everyone.

Parenthood for Me is a non-profit whose mission is to provide financial and emotional support to those building families through adoption or medical intervention. Since 2010 we have given away $26,000.

We are currently accepting grant applications for both adoption and assisted reproductive technology. The grants will be announced in June of this year.

Visit our grants page for more information and to download the applications. Please read the FAQ first. It should answer all of your questions.

For those of you who are visiting for the first time I am an adoptive mama of two. My husband and I founded PFM in 2008; that is when this blog began. This is my 301 post. I have not been writing much lately because my youngest son came home from Korea right before Christmas. He is 20 months old and we are all in love. I have two boys now and they are the cutest darn things in the world.

But I it has been a long road to get here. The first few days Wee was home were somewhat unbelievable. We would be driving together and I would just look at my husband and say, "Well, it took us 8 years, but we're here."

We are a family of 4- five with our dog, Lulu.

More posts to come this week. I have many stirring in my mind. Just need to get them written in full.

Happy ICLW, Erica! Thanks for visiting my blog! You know what's funny? I'm pretty sure I applied for this grant last quarter...time to apply again! :) What wonderful work you do...I can't believe you've given away $26,000 in such a relatively short period of time! Makes my heart sing. :D

Hmm didn't even know this sort of thing was out there. My family jokes that I should just write a letter to Ellen or someone like that because there is just no way we could ever stomach 20K per cycle for IVF with PDG that would be needed to help our chromosome issues...*sigh*

So we just continue to keep Faith and Hope that it will happen with out all that...
