Hello all of you wonderfully generous, kind people! We are so grateful to have a community we can petition to for help with things that are outside of our grasp, and are hopeful you will find us worthy of such generousity!
My husband and I live in a small town in Eastern Canada. Our love story was a long time in the making (meaning we could have met several times over the course of 14 years and never did…until the time was right!), and we have been blissfully married for 6 years now. One thing we both were passionate about even before we met was having a family. Sadly, biological children is not an option for us, but beautifully, adoption is and we couldn’t be more excited!! We have already selected the country we feel compelled to adopt from, and know that we want to adopt siblings so that they can all stay together. We are also confident in the love, support, and warmth we have to pour out on some sweet kiddos that are looking for a secure home!
So, where is our issue? Our issue is that we do not currently own a home that can house everyone, nor do we have the capability (with the cost of living being so high) to save for a proper down payment. We have access to funds for the adoption, but, at least here in Canada, we cannot use borrowed money as a down payment. THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!!!
We would be eternally grateful to you for helping us achieve the dream of owning a home with enough room for us and 3-5 kids so that we can finally bring our kids home to us and live as a family.
There is a modest house that we have found that we love, 3bed/1bath, with an unfinished basement (room for growth!) that my husband, who is a carpenter, can finish and create the rest of the space necessary for us to all live comfortably. The cost of this home is $449,000 so we are asking for help with the minimum down payment which is: $22,450.
Thank you, a million times over, for helping us in this next stage of our lives, and for helping our sweet children (whomever they may be!) who are waiting to be united with us, and us with them, by kindly aiding us in the purchase of our family home!
