Matching Mondays


It has been a few weeks since I posted Matching Mondays.   I got in a car accident almost 3 weeks ago and have been trying to heal and then take care of my family and  catch up on everything that I didn't get done while on bedrest.   Thanks for being patient with me and for your sweet messages!   You guys are the best!

My heart is with these children I am featuring today.  There is a reason I felt I should choose them to feature....I just don't know what will happen next.  Please keep me posted. 
Remember to not let fear get in the way of Love!


Utah

Dakota age 11.
This handsome kids has some really great  things going on with him and he loves many activities including Scouting...please click on his name and read more about him! 


Jasmine age 13.
This pretty, active teen is smart, loves to be active and enjoys animals and young children.  Take a peek!  There is also a video of her that looks like it was taken when she was 12.

Oregon

Epona, Rhyannen and Taliesen  ages 6, 4 & 3.
CUTE!

Check out this link to see a newborn baby boy considered "special needs" because of mother's cocaine use and mental health.   (I personally would snatch this situation up in a heartbeat!)

Many children 0-4 here to view.

Brenda,

One of these sweet kids has been on my mind a lot lately. I think you listed her again today for me.

I have a ton of questions about adopting through the foster system and would LOVE to email you directly. I tried finding an email address for you, but couldn't find one. Can you shoot me an email: nikalo at hotmail dot com.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Is the fee for Spence-Chapin really $1,000.00 for an income of $50,000.00 for their sweet ASAP situations, it sounds to good to be true. I would love to learn more about Spence-Chapin. Do you know anyone who used them to adopt domestically or through the ASAP. heather.nichole.roberts at gmail dot com

THank You,
Heather

There is a friend on a yahoogroup I am part of that has adopted through them. Let me see if she will come and post a comment to answer your questions. I think the fee's are legit. But let me see if she will share her experience with you.

Hi everyone! Robin here, and we adopted out 4th little one (although he's a big 11 now) through Spence-Chapin's ASAP program. They were wonderful to work with and the fees really were very low. I think we paid 2,500.00 for everything except our homestudy and travel. I would use them again in a heartbeat. Feel free to email me a rgoddard4@cox.net if you have any other questions.

We adopted a baby through Spence Chapin in June. We adopted a sweet little girl with Down syndrome...truly an angel among us! She was our fifth adoption...and Spence chapin is hands-down the most professional and economical. Our adoption fee throught SC was $3200 plus homestudy, travel, and finalization. Hard to believe...seems how most adoptions (outside of LDSFS) start at $25,000. Amazing! We hope to use SC again in the near future! I'm not really sure how this blog works...but it looks like she features kiddos every week. That is amazing! How wonderful! I must share my experience though...I always issue a word of caution to those interested in adopting older children. All children need homes...just make sure that you really research many topics...but especial RAD. Again, everybody has to do what is right for their family...just sharing my point of view. But yes...two thumbs up for Spence Chapin!!! jodi2spain@comcast.net
