Thank you for wanting to come alongside us as we trust the Lord to bring us to our son or daughter! We are so excited to become parents through adoption, and we are also excited for the opportunity to involve our friends and our community in this story.

Here are some ways you can support us:


adoption puzzle fundraiser

To help us remember all of the people who have been a part of this story, as well as to create a tangible fundraising goal, we are ‘selling’ puzzle pieces that will become a framed piece of art to hang on the nursery wall. We have a 520 piece puzzle that we will slowly put together as the fundraiser progresses!

We are "selling" each piece for a minimum of $10. If every piece were purchased for this amount, we could raise $5,200. We feel even $10 is a significant contribution! However, in order to reach our goal of $25,000, our prayer is that some will choose to give $50, $100, or even more to “purchase” one piece of the puzzle.

You can give a tax-deductible gift through Adopt Together (click “Make a Donation” below; please note that this will not work if you are accessing from Instagram’s browser - you will need to open in Safari or a similar browser) or send money through Venmo (samanthacbarnes).



We are overwhelmed by our need for the Lord as we walk this path, and we would love for you to cover us in prayer! Here are a few specific things you can be praying for:
