We were completely overwhelmed (in the best way) by your responses to our adoption news! Once again, Jesus is showing us His love and faithfulness through your kind words and support.

As we mentioned in our announcement, domestic adoption is quite expensive, and most families who adopt need to fundraise at least some in order to cover expenses. Many of you have already graciously asked how you can support us financially on this journey towards bringing a precious new member into our family, and we are so humbled by that. 

We are praying that between fundraisers, applying for grants, and working our side jobs, we will be able to cover $40,0000-$50,000 of our adoption expenses. It feels like a lofty goal to reach in a short amount of time, but we know that Jesus put us on this path and we trust He is going to provide. 

So here we are announcing our first adoption fundraiser: a puzzle! We have this beautiful 1000 piece puzzle that we have chosen specifically for our adoption. Scripture is full of creation imagery that we connect with on a deep level, and we particularly love the beauty of Isaiah 61:3(b),

"They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor."

We pray that our kids will grow up to be strong, confident, and resilient men and women because of the work of the Lord in their lives. And we pray that they will come to know Him at a young age, living lives rooted in Him, bringing Him all the glory.


1. We are "selling" each piece for $25. You can purchase 1, 2, 3 or 10! There is no limit.

2. To purchase your piece(s), you can send money through our Paypal link:, Venmo @klackneradoption, or mail a check -- please send us an email at for our address.

3. Once purchased, we'll write your name on the back of your puzzle piece(s).

4. When every single piece has been "sold", we'll put the puzzle together, frame it, and hang it in our future child's room so that they'll always know who has been a part of his or her incredible story. 

If we can complete this puzzle through your generosity, we will have made it halfway to our fundraising goal!

However you are supporting our adoption journey, through prayer and/or finances, we are incredibly grateful for the role you are playing in bringing our baby home. We can't say "thank you" enough!
