We are still in the holding pattern with the grants for which we applied. Things are moving as more and more of them are at least getting back with us about receiving our information. It will be nice if they come back with funds that can get us farther along.
I have completed the I600A that is a form needed for immigration. We are trying to get all the necessary documents together for out dossier. Adoption = TONS of paperwork. I know it will all be worth it in the end. You just feel like you are drowning in the process.
How Can You Help?
Well, prayer is the most important thing. Pray for our child to be safe and experiencing love every day. Pray that the grants will help expedite this process. We need about $25,000 in total for the adoption. It seems like a lot but God owns everything and he has been faithful to the finances so far and we have no reason to lose trust in Him now.
You can give. Gifts can either be sent to us directly or to our Pure Charity Page.
We are also taking donations for a garage sale we will have in late April or early May. Just leave a comment here or on my Facebook page if you are interested.
The outpouring of love for us during this process has been humbling. God is blessing us and it is through the prayers and support of our friends and families that we keep our eyes on the prize.
