If you thought about donating, now's the time!

We are getting down to the wire before sending our dossier to Ethiopia. Before we do, all our balance must be paid in full.

If you've considered donating to our process (tax deductible, eternal impact!), now would be the time to give! Here's how much we have left:

$10,350 if adopting 2 unrelated kiddos
$7850 if we end up with 2 biological siblings

If you'd like a further breakdown for how our expenses have been paid, here's the update. Adopting our little ones will cost a total of $30,000.

  • Over $9000: Brian & My Contribution. We've pretty much drained our assets on this.
  • $7550: Friends & Family Contributions! We've been OVERWHELMED by the gifts - large and small - toward our little ones.
  • $2500: Newsong Contribution
  • Airfare: Someone's offered to cover our airfare to/from Ethiopia.
  • We are applying for 3 grants to help with our balance. Please pray with us that we'll be granted money from Shaohannah's Hope, Lifesong for Orphans, and ABBA's Fund.

Thank you for being a part of our journey in every way!
