It is more blessed to give, than to receive.

This is a hard truth from Paul’s lips, paraphrasing Christ in Acts 20:35, that we have been given much so we can be equipped to give much. We are not able to afford the cost of her adoption on our own. We’re asking our friends, family and even strangers to partner with us to bring Ana into our family through praying and consider giving financially to our adoption fund. To complete our adoption, we need to raise a total of $22,000. We trust that God will provide for us in this need through people who will also feel this burden of caring for the fatherless. There are several different ways you can give:

Donate to Ana's FIG FUND

Your Financial Donation to Ana’s FIG Fund through Project Hopeful is 100% Tax deductible. Donations can only be used for Ana’s adoption costs and we cannot use them for our personal expenses – this accountability means that if for some reason we cannot adopt Ana, the funds are still available for her. If you work for Microsoft, Amazon, Google, or another company that offers charitable gift matching, your donation may be matched. Ask us how.

Shop at

Do you buy stuff through like we do? Use our Affilate link, and for every purchase you make at Amazon, the Matalie Adoption Fund will receive a portion of your purchase. Be sure to add this link to your bookmarks bar and use it every time you go to Amazon! MATALIE’S AMAZON AFFILIATE.

Donate Gift Cards or Airline Miles

If you have a credit card that accrues Points or Airline Miles, you may be able to donate either a gift card or miles to our family to use for travel and other adoption related expenses. Gift cards to places like Amazon, Ikea, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Gap or other retail stores will allow us to prepare our home for Ana. Airline miles will help our family make the two required trips to Eastern Europe and back.

Get photos taken

Hire Natalie G. Photography for family photos! She will be setting up some very special Adoption Mini Sessions so you can get your family some great professional photos and at the same time, support our growing family. Check out Natalie’s photography work at All profits from her biz will go to the adoption, and we can claim this income as a refund on our tax return through the Adoption Tax Credit.
