There is still an opportunity to have your donation to our adoption matched.
We have been approved for a $1,000 matching grant through Lifesong for Orphans! You can use this link to make a tax-deductible contribution to our adoption. The first $1,000 given will be matched, and $450 has still not been given toward that matching. So the next $450 given through their webpage will be matched.
We need to raise $8,014 more to pay all of our adoption agency fees for "A"'s referral. The rest of our goal covers our estimated travel costs.
I started gathering dossier documents to send to Ethiopia this week. There are 24 documents we need to gather, everything from new copies of our birth certificate to a letter from our bank. I worked on gathering as many as I could this week. I still lack 8 documents. Pray for us as we complete these tasks. Every single document needs to be mistake free and notarized. I need prayer for endurance and a good attitude!
We are having another garage sale tomorrow, and I am making wooden signs to sell at a booth at Whistle Stop Trade Days in Clarendon on March 3rd & 4th.
We are getting so close to being in the "waiting for a court date" stage!
