Every morning, i wake up to Google Alerts.
“Intercountry Adoption” and “Adoption Fundraising”.
I read up on what’s out there and see if there is anything new happening in the adoption space.
December 4th there was something new.
The Lundberg family.
They concocted a wild-eyed plan of selling their Seahawks tickets on eBay for $32,000 to fund their adoption.
It was a crazy story.
A couple, so bent on growing their family through adoption, they attempted great feats to jump the financial burden set on every adoptive parent.
It was a short story.
No one bought the tickets.
People rallied around them, but in the end, no one could afford the high ticket to the Seahawks game. And the Lundbergs were left with two tickets to a game far away, and a $32,000 bill between them and the new addition to their family.
It’s not the end of the story.
