The Flanik Family Story

eva and momLindsey and I met out on the riverfront in Wilmington, Delaware.  We started dating and quickly learned that we were meant for eachother.  Our love grew every moment we spent together.  The long nights, crazy conversations, weird songs we'd make up, and just the time spent together made our love grow more each day. With our love for eachother bursting through the seams we felt it was time to expand the family and thats when our beautiful yorkipoo Eva came into the picture.  After proposing to Lindsey at the same spot we met and a beautiful wedding in Lake Raystown, Pennsylvania, our love continues to blossom.  Our travels and life journey have brought us to Charlotte, North Carolina where we were able to start the process of putting down some roots.  While our love continues to blossom, we feel its time to share some of our love with a baby of our own.

weddingThe struggles with infertility have been hard on both of us.  But with all pain and dissapointment comes a time to stand up and persevere.  Adoption not only is the logical step but it just feels right.  We are excited and more than ready to adopt a baby of our own.





We have signed a contract with Adoption Network Law Center (ANLC) and have taken a loan out for some of the money, unfortunately the costs for a domestic infant adoption are truly high and we cannot afford all the costs which can include:

  • A Homestudy $1,500-2,000
  • Agency Fees $10,000-25,000
  • Birth Mother Expenses $3,000
  • Attorney Fees $1,000-6,000
  • Travel Expenses $500-1,000

insert babyOur Ultimate goal would be to receive $20,000 but a more reasonable $3,500 seems more realistic for this crowdfunding and would truly help us out!

We would spend the money on paying for the adoption fees, any travel expenses to pick up our baby and any additional fees we don't yet know about.

In lieu of any birthday, arbor day, valentines day, easter or christmas gifts, we are asking for you to donate to our adoption fund on here!
