Jasper Speaks:

I said I would let you know about other ways to help and here is a fun one. We are selling t-shirts to raise adoption awareness. A portion of the sales (a good sized portion) will go to our adoption fund. Please consider buying one for each member of your family. My dream is to have our child meet everyone who already love him or her in one of these shirts someday. Please consider helping us in this way!

Here is a link to the page and a picture of the shirt:

Home Study

Jasper Speaks:

We are finished with our part of the home study. We are simply waiting for the caseworker to complete it. Things got very real last night when our agency called to inform us that there was a little boy they wanted to match with us. Unfortunately,we don't have enough funds available  just yet. We will need about $14000 for agency and in country fees for the next steps.

Work has begun on  our dossier. I cannot tell you how much paperwork it will take to see this thing to the end. It is worth it thought, knowing we will have a new addition to our family when all is said and done.

The home study must be complete before we can apply for any grants. This puts us in a waiting period where we are trusting God to do amazing things. Thanks for giving. We will be coming up with a couple of new ways for you to partner with us soon as well. As always, Pure Charity is your tax deductible way to give. All money here will go directly to our agency (European Adoption Consultants) which is a 501(C)3 non-profit.

Please continue to pray for our adoption path. God is in this and we feel like we will have a wonderful testimony of his grace when this part of our story is complete. When we come up with other opportunities for you to help. I will post them here.
