Hand in Hand Matching Grant!

We received notification from Hand in Hand Adoption that we were awarded a matching grant up to $8,000. Hand in Hand will match dollar for dollar up to $4,000...so if we raise $4,000, they will match it! Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!

We are beyond excited about this grant and its timing! As many of you know, we are in the waiting phase of our adoption process and could receive THE CALL any time. When that happens, within just a few weeks, we will need to pay the first installment of our international fees plus pay for our travel arrangements. To date we've paid out over $15,000 with approximately $35,000 still remaining. This grant ($8,000) will make a HUGE dent in the amount needed to bring our daughter home!

If you would like to participate in this matching grant, please let us know. We will send you a letter describing how the grant works. Oh, and your contribution is tax-deductible, too.

We still have an application out for the Lifesong Adoption Grant, and we should hear back on that grant within the next 2-3 weeks. Please pray that, if it's the Lord's will, we will receive a grant from them as well.
