For those of us at Bungalux who are in our 30s, "baby" is a four-letter word.
We’re not allowed to utter it on first dates, second ones or, quite frankly, ever. If a guy asks us, “Do you want kids someday?” the correct answer is, “Between football season, ski season, baseball season, and Ibiza season, when’s there time?” We’ve been instructed not to ga-ga over friends’ kids and look the other way when we pass one on the street. And all that egg freezing and fertility talk? Hocus-pocus, if you ask us.
But that doesn't mean we can't admit here that, despite the toys and the mess and the crayon on the wall (we shudder to think about it), there's something about a child that makes a Bungalux, well, a Bungalux.
To that end, we were absolutely thrilled to stumble across one of the most wonderful new organizations and we felt compelled to share it. Created by Becky and Kipp Fawcett who went through rounds and rounds of fertility treatments but never conceived, Help Us Adopt is a financial assistance grant program which provides up to $15,000 toward domestic, international, foster, or special needs adoption expenses.
The program doesn't discriminate. It provides both couples and individuals the opportunity to adopt, regardless of race, ethnicity, marital status, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. We like that, and if you're one of our fans we’re sure you do too.
We encourage you to consider giving to this fantastic organization. Your gift can change an entire family's life forever.
