Luke & Kelly G.

Adopting a special needs baby with Down syndrome ​


To assist the family and their adoption provider with the financial resources they needed to bring their family together forever.

Every family and journey is different and we can offer support and guidance in all cases.


The employee needed guidance around adopting children with special needs.


We helped them connect with an agency that would help them navigate their specific family plan.

Online video library, resources and live coaching provided the support this family needed to create a comprehensive financial plan for their adoption journey.


Vesta helped parents to secure $41,920 through grants and fundraising efforts.

The family was able to adopt twin girls with Down Syndrome.

“VMLY&R is a strong supporter of adoption, and we were looking for a solution to help our employees navigate the complicated world of adoption. In partnering with Kelly Ellison and her team, we were able to help create and pilot a solution that would help to educate our employees about adoption and to help them reach their ultimate goal of growing their family through adoption.”
