When Lindsay and Major Colin Culkin met, fell in love and got married, the two mutually decided to pursue adoption to grow their family. The couple — who now live in Carlsbad, California, after spending two years overseas for Major Culkin’s military deployment — received paperwork for two twin girls and instantly knew that they had been called to bring the sisters into their family.
The Culkins officially brought the girls home last summer, fulfilling their adoption dream, but they have still been paying off the associated expenses months after the adoption was finalized.
For those who don’t know, adoption can be an expensive process, sometimes exceeding $30,000 — or more. And in this case, the Culkins brought two children into their home, a more costly endeavor than they had initially imagined.
“We really had not done the financial planning for adopting two children and then we saw these two girls and our hearts just went out to them,” Major Culkin recently told “Indivisible” and “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sarah Drew during a sit-down interview about the adoption.
He continued, “We knew that we had to figure out how to adopt both of them.”
Watch Drew deliver the family with the surprise of a lifetime:
The Culkins turned to Adopt Together, a crowdfunding platform that helps families raise resources to complete the adoption process. And now PureFlix.com is also part of the Culkin family’s journey. Thanks to YOU — the PureFlix.com family — the Culkins’ remaining adoption expenses have been covered in full.
Your support means they can focus on their new family, and that together we can continue helping other families through Adopt Together.
The couple shared the details of their incredible journey with Drew, as Lindsay Culkin revealed why she felt so drawn to adopt in the first place.
