Moranton Family Adoption

Please help the Moranton family of Joel, Jody and Andrew grow.

Our family is currently three, Joel, Jody, and Andrew. We would love to grow our family by adopting a sister for Andrew. It was always in our family plan to have one child naturally and adopt one. We even shared our mutual desire to adopt a child on the first date. When we found out Jody was pregnant, on the first day of a 10-month, 30,000-mile road trip/work adventure, it was a welcomed gift. However, the pregnancy was not an easy time, it was stressful and resulted in Andrew coming eight weeks early. Our family’s first 22 days together were spent in the NICU, and the doctor recommend not getting pregnant again. We took on these challenges together and now are thriving; it was hard to hear we couldn’t get pregnant again, but we moved on quickly as it was part of our plans/goals to adopt.

Time flys when having fun

We have had 8 awesome years together and 4 quick fun years with Andrew. It is time to take the next big step in our lives. Andrew has been asking for a sister and we want to make that happen. He is very sweet, quiet, caring, and loves to laugh, even tells jokes. He is in preschool and speech therapy due to delayed talking but loves doing both. He is smart as could be, and requests to be read “learning” books all the time so we read about bugs, nature, the body and more.  We go to the library for story time most weeks, he loves to go to gymnastics and is looking forward to karate lessons when he is old enough. As a family we love to go camping, be outdoors, take road trips, go off-roading, play Legos, play games, and do fun crafts.

 

We have investigated several avenues to get this adoption process started and this is where we are. We are asking for your help in locating our next family member. We would love to adopt a girl under the age of 2, if possible, as the goal is to grow our family and help a young child.

How can you help?

Simply keep your ears open, if you hear of a mother weighing her options, please let us know. If you know someone who has been through this and might be about to share some advice, also, please let us know.

If you would like to help with the high cost of adoption, we are not looking for handouts. You could simply read and share some of Jody’s blog posts or tell your small business owner friends that Joel is a great website builder and marketer. If you really want to contribute to the goal financially, our details are at the bottom.

Professionally, Joel runs a small business where he builds websites, helps with marketing, does product photography, and write articles for magazines, all mostly for the off-road truck community. Jody is a stay-at-home mom and has a blog about animal care and diseases, where she uses her knowledge from being a veterinary technician for over 18 years. She loves to teach people how to help their pets be happy and heathy.

If you want to know more about the numbers, this is where they are. It seems that unless you spend about $100,000 it is not possible to have an agency assist in finding a mother looking to go the route of adoption. If we can find a child with the help of our community, family, and friends then it would only be in the $20,000-$30,000 range. This is much more manageable number for our family. We have looked at the foster care system, but in our state, it is not going to work for what we want right now.

Thank you all for everything!
