Hi, I’m Carlie! My journey to adopt started back in 2020 when the world shut down & I had time to take a breath. I felt deep in my heart that now was the time to fulfill my dream of being a mother & having a family of my own. I returned home to Denver, CO to be near my family as I embarked down this road to motherhood & haven’t looked back. Earlier this year I was blessed with a match & got to be present at her birth, it was such a beautiful experience to witness. While this match failed, I believe it was God putting me there to help the birth momma through & to assure me of His Miracle that will be coming into my life.
I am pursuing domestic adoption and am currently back in the process of presenting my profile across the U.S. to expectant mommas. My mom (soon-to-be grandma) and I can’t wait to bring our little one home. I am hoping to raise $15,000 to help with the adoption costs.
Hello, we'd like to take the time to tell you about a great women named Dorothy, whom we know from our congregation at Ascension Lutheran Church. Dorothy grew up in a small town in Nebraska on a farm. It was in that small town where she met Daryl Nelson at a church function & they later moved to Colorado in 1964. They were married for 48 years. Her husband sadly passed away in February of 2008. Dorothy & Daryl were lucky enough to move in to their home in CO in 1972, where they raised all of their children. Dorothy has been an absolutely amazing mother to 7 children. A grandmother to 10 grandchildren & a great-grandmother to 9 children.
As the original owner of this home, it brings us & Dorothy much joy that we can help bring her home back to life with a fresh coat of paint during our project with Both Hands.
