Giving Back


My Story Fine Jewelry was inspired by Jackie's journey to motherhood through adoption. When first starting the process she had so many questions: "Who do I talk to; How do I find a birth mom?" and most importantly "How am I going to pay for all this?"

After finally becoming a mom, Jackie became very passionate about helping others build their families through adoption. "I want everyone who is on this same journey to have the opportunity to provide a warm and loving home for a child that needs it."  Jackie wanted to find a way to give back, and has since become a board member of an organization named HelpUsAdopt.Org

"There are over one hundred million children throughout the world who need homes. Every day when I go to work I think to myself, ‘What happens to these children if families can’t afford to adopt them? And what happens to birth mothers here in the United States if they can’t find the adoptive families they are in search of?’ The answers are grim. This is what fuels us. This is what fuels our donors. Helpusadopt.org is providing a solution to this global problem." - Rebecca Fawcett, Founder & President of Helpusadopt.org

In support of Jackie's passion to help build families and lessen the financial burden of adoption, a portion of all sales from My Story Fine Jewelry is donated towards HelpUsAdopt.org. ***

We thank you for your purchase and hope you find it in your hearts to further support this cause by personally donating to HelpUsAdopt.Org 

xoxo,

Jackie 

 

*** Adoption fact: The average cost of Adoption in the USA is $40,000.00. Since their launch in 2007, HelpUsAdopt.org has granted 274 grants totalling over $2.4 MILLION.

    I ran across your Instagram and jewelry from and person I follow, Allie Darr. I loved the jewelry so I went to your site. What a surprise to learn you are an adoptive Mama just like me! I love how a portion of the sales go towards adoption costs. I read your story and I can also vividly remember where I was, what was happening and the moment I knew our path to parenthood was going to be a adoption. I still have no answer as to why we couldn’t get pregnant or why I couldn’t carry a child (I was told at one of our appointments “you have a beautiful uterus!” -wait, what?!?) it never happened the “normal” way BUT I know that I was chosen and I was suppose to have my son become mine this way. Thank you for sharing your story. It felt nice to “connect” with another Mama and share part of my story.
