Adoption Donations For Steele Adoption

About Steele Adoption

We started our adoption process in December of 2012.  This website is to provide an opportunity for those of you that have been asking how to donate.  Please - do not feel pressured!  You are all still our friends/family whether you give or not!  :)  But your prayers are greatly coveted.  We had no idea how we would even get to the point that we have, but somehow, God has managed to show his awesome faithfulness at every point.  
  Thank you for being part of the process of adding to our family.  We can't wait to see what the future holds!
UPDATE: We are officially on the waiting list for a child (or children) as of June 12, 2013.  It makes it feel so real!  
Crazy and good at the same time.  

UPDATE 12/16/2013: We have our court date!  We are going to Uganda to pick up our awesome little girl at the end of January. It may be another few months before she actually gets to come up with us, but at least we will get to meet her.  

UPDATE 03/06/2014: As most of you know, we have been to Uganda for 30 days already.  That was our "court trip" where we appear in court and apply for custody of Manu.  We don't have the official documents in-hand yet but we have heard that things went positively so that's a happy thing!  We will be going back to arrange for her legal travel to the U.S. as soon as we hear from our case worker.  They've told us that our return could be anywhere from 4 weeks to 7 months out.  
If any of you has an idea about a specific fundraiser to help our with our adoption, you can add specific fundraisers from this page.  

THANK YOU!!!      

Adoption Donations Details

A place for people to donate to our adoption effort...but only if you feel like you want to.  We appreciate each and every one of you whether you are able to give or not - so thank you for your support, prayers, and donations.  So many of you have been a very important part of our journey through a variety of ways and we can't thank you enough!  
   Just a little bit of info: We are adopting from Uganda through Holt International.  We have just submitted our dossier and are awaiting referral.  We wanted to leave the door open for whatever child God wants to give us so we don't know if we're getting a boy or a girl, one child or a sibling group!  Exciting stuff!!!
