Gift of Adoption’s mission is to fill the void that separates child from family through adoption assistance grants that give vulnerable children a permanent home and the chance to thrive. 100% of proceeds from this family 5K and Fun Run event will go toward completing adoptions for families in Georgia.

About Us

Doug Munster and Kecia Tomlin developed the Adopted By You 5K & Fun Run in 2017 and chose to
partner with Gift of Adoption based on the amazing success GOA has with providing grants to so many
deserving children and families over the past 23 years. Doug and his husband Brent are no strangers to
adoption. They now have a beautiful 4-year old boy named Sawyer and a new baby boy named Shepherd
who they adopted through the open adoption process. During this process, Doug and Brent saw firsthand
how expensive it is to adopt and how upfront costs of adoption can often delay or prevent adoptions from
happening. They realized how fortunate they were to have the means to afford adoption, but their hearts
ached for the children waiting and qualified parents yearning to bring them home. Doug and Brent wanted
to find a way to give back and help adoptive families with the last bit of financial support they need to bring
their waiting child home. Doug discussed his idea with his close friend Kecia, and she immediately jumped
on board. On June 10, 2017, Doug and Kecia hosted the inaugural Adopted By You 5K & Fun Run (in
partnership with GOA) to support the many children in need of a forever family.


The Adopted By You 5K & Fun Run team has been able to raise over $50K since the inaugural race with
the help of all the amazing sponsors, race participants and volunteers. Corporate and private sponsorships
represent about $25K of the total funds raised. Funds from the Adopted By You 2017 and 2018 race events
have helped 19 children join their families in Georgia. These include both domestic and international adoptions.
