No Hands But Ours is committed to encouraging, informing and supporting families as they pursue adoption through the special needs program in China. In an effort to be more purposeful in supporting in-process families as they stretch financially to adopt, we are now featuring one fundraising family per month. If you would like your family to be considered for a future post on NHBO, please complete the short form here.
We would love to introduce you to the Berry family. They are a family of six who is in the midst of growing by one. Their current adoption will the Berry’s third special need adoption in three years which, as you might imagine, is a huge financial stretch for their family.
The Berrys began this adoption knowing they would need to fundraise every single penny needed to pay for the adoption costs. They hit the ground running and raised the first $15,000 needed in just a few months. They have hosted countless fundraisers to get up to that initial amount, including selling super cute “Wo Ai Ni” t-shirts, soaps, beautiful handmade necklaces, hosting an online auction, and a slew of other fundraisers.
Despite their tireless work, they still need to raise $25,000 to be fully funded.
Any sized donation is appreciated, and when you donate through Into the Field’s Loved from Afar program, your donation is tax-deductible.
Would you like to meet the newest Berry?
Here he is, sweet Ridge who turns two in July. Worth every single second of their fundraising effort. How sweet is he?
