Our family had the priviledge of attending our first "Adoption Shower" last night. As many of you already know, we have received a matching funds grant of $5000 dollars from Micah's Hope. Many of Rod's co-workers from the Alabama Baptist Children's Home gave our family a shower and made donations toward our adoption! It was such a blessing to share our adoption journey thus far with our friends and receive their encouragement and support. I was humbled by their outpouring of love! We enjoyed Ethiopian food and Rod was able to give our adoption testimony. Thanks to everyone involved for making it such a special evening!
We appreciate your continued prayers as we wait for our referral. If anyone is willing and able to help us out financially, you can double your donation by sending it to Lifesong for Orphans (the administrators of our matching grant from Micah's Hope). Our goal is to try to raise as much of the $5,000 as possible by October 18th. This is a tax deductible contribution. Just click on the donation link on this blog page and you can make a donation electronically.
If you would rather write a check, you can mail it to :
