Hello!
For those who do not know us we are Zack and Valerie Valentine, and we are in the process of adopting a baby that is due in July 2019! 
We had been pursuing a family for several years, and for some unknown reason God did not allow us to conceive. In 2018 God stirred our hearts to the journey of adoption. We did a lot of research and decided that private infant adoption was the path for us. Zack and Valerie both have a strong pro-life background so it was the perfect fit for us. Once this decision was made we found the best adoption agency for our needs and the process began! It has been like drinking from a fire hose to try and learn all we can about this process! We learned about the agency fees and legal fees that came with a private adoption, and we also learned that when we would be matched with a birth mom there would be additional cost to take care of her physical needs during pregnancy and recovery. 
One of the beautiful things about private infant adoption is the impact we can have on our birth mother. Every birth mother will have different needs depending on her situation. 
With all of this information we formed a plan of how would pay for all of the required elements of our adoption. As God often works, our plans did not quite happen the way we thought. 
First, we were blessed with a match within a few short weeks of contracting with our agency!
Second, our birth mother has a significant financial need. It is not our place to explain these details but it was more than we had planned. 
At first Zack and I wondered if this was the right match for us, but we quickly knew this was the baby God had for us, and we also knew that He would provide the financial help that we would need to bring ourbaby home! 
We have started with our own budget and eliminating any of the extras and we are pursuing grants that are available to a few adoptive families, but those funds are quite limited.
So that gets us to today and why we are setting up this Give Send Go account. We have had many people ask us what they can do to help us in this adoption process and honestly participation in this fundraiser would help eliminate our greatest need! 
We are asking for anyone who feels led to take part in a special fundraiser to help us bring home our missing piece!!
We have a special puzzle that will hang in our sweet babies nursery! Each piece of the puzzle is worth $50, or $25 for a half piece. We will write the name of the donor on the back of every sold puzzle piece! So our little one will know all of the people who helped to make their adoption possible!  
Once all of the pieces are sold we will reveal the puzzle picture and hang it in the nursery!! 
We are so thankful for all who have taken the time to read our story, pray for us in the process, and for those that are able to support us financially!

Our adoption puzzle is starting to take shape!! 

This has truly been a faith journey! It has been so incredible to hear people story’s about adoption! It has a huge blessing for us! Zack and I would love to know if/how your life has been affected by adoption! Leave a comment or message us!! It is such an encouragement to hear from others impacted by this journey!

It has also been humbling and a blessing to see how God has used people to supply our needs right when we need them! 

Currently we have sold 185 pieces all going toward our adoption fund! This has allowed us to pay a portion of our adoption expenses and the first two months of our birth moms expenses! We are so thankful!
The puzzle has a total of 500 pieces. If every piece is supported it will cover a portion of our total adoption expense. We are pursuing grants, employer assistance, and personal budgeting to cover the rest. 

Puzzle pieces are $50 or $25 for a half piece!

If you feel led to contribute financially by assisting us bring our baby home we have 3 opportunities
1. Support via our Give Send Go account 
2. Give via PayPal (private message me for details) 
3. Send a Check (private message me for details)

We are so thankful for those who have helped already! It has been so humbling to receive each and every investment in a babies life and our families future!!
