The Story

Help us bring our "A" home to stay! 

In December we participated in an orphan hosting program.  We brought a 9 year old little boy into our family for Christmas.  We had no idea that we would form such an undeniable bond within just a few short weeks.  "A" fit into our family like the missing puzzle piece.  We are so happy to embark on this journey to bring him home!!  

We have been so blessed by an outpouring of support, and although there is a significant amount of money to raise, many of the expenses are already accounted for!!!  God is so good!!  Please help us raise the remainder and bring him home to stay.  We are so grateful for all of your help!

We are eating this elephant one bite at a time!  We are so grateful for all the support we have received so far.  I cannot tell you how much it means to us!  We are currently ready to send our i800a application to immigration.  We are about $800 away from being able to put that in the mail!  It will take 6-8 weeks to receive approval, so we are anxious to get that underway.  In the meantime, we are working on our dossier documents in preparation for the next big hurdle.  We're moving along slower than I'd like, but progress is progress right?!!

Okay, I have updated the amount again!!  Through generous donations, we COVERED THE ADOPTION AGENCY COMMITTMENT FEE!!  That is super exciting, and it keeps us moving forward.  The final Home Study documents will be submitted to the Home Study agency on Monday August 28th, and we will be full steam ahead!  Our next project goal is to submit the i800, and the Dossier by mid-September.  That keeps us on track to possibly get him home by Christmas!  While all of this is FANTASTIC!  It also means we will need another agency payment of $5,000 in just a few months.  This will be due before we make the trip to Europe to bring him home.  We are trusting God to provide!  Please help with anything you can.  Even sharing the link is helpful!

I have updated the amount on the fundraiser to reflect our next goal!!  We are starting from $2383 in this account (which has already been paid out to the Home Study Agency) and pushing for the $2700 Adoption Agency Commitment fee.  Our goal is to be able to pay this by the end of July!  We need to move fast in order to get travel dates this year.  If we don't get travel dates this year- we risk losing him. Let's move fast!!
