The Story

The names of people who donate for this fundraiser will go on the suitcase that will help bring Townes home forever!!

We did well over $4,000 with the puzzle fundraiser! Thank you for all who donated. Okay y'all...Josh and Mandy are in the final leg to this journey to finally BRING TOWNES HOME!! The total cost for them is hitting the $40,000 marked AGAIN... They have MOWA approval and will head to Ethiopia ANYDAY! The plan is for them both to go and meet their sweet boy and for Mandy to stay the 3 weeks until he can come home for good...Here's what we can do. GIVE!! Make this $13,000 burden be lifted from them. Last minute travel expenses (which can not be avoided) and less than mediocre housing while they are there add up quickly. NOT to mention last minute adoption costs.

I am not called to adopt, but know that because of that, I AM CALLED to support those who are. I believe orphan care is mission work...those who provide care, those who adopt, and even those of us who support them financially. But let's face it, we have the easiest job. Let pull together one last time and support the Thurman family in the final leg of their journey! I can't wait to snuggle this little boy and watch him become the young man God intends.

I'm leaving this previous description because I want everyone to know the LONG prayer filled journey it's been:

It has been a long and grueling process and they are still waiting, with open arms, to hold their little boy. There have been times they were told that this would never happen for them. But God knew better!!! He has opened the door once again after it has been shut, not once, but twice. Josh and Mandy have fought and lost the financial war with previous parties and therefore are starting from $0 once again. This family needs us, needs you! The following scripture was one that Mandy posted on her very first blog post in April 2013. It is very fitting to us as supporters today.

"Once our eyes are opened we cannot pretend we do not know what to do.  God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows we know and holds us responsible to act."  - Proverbs 24:12

Pray for the Thurman family and how God wants you to be a part of this journey financially for them. Be open to His answer as to what he expects from you.

The Thurman Family received their MOWA approval today!! This means they could be traveling to Ethiopia in the next few weeks!! Stay tuned for one last fundraiser! We will continue to do it through this site to make it easier on the funds being transferred. The puzzle fundraiser successfully raised over $4,000 for the Thurman family, that's awesome but...for anyone unfamiliar, it takes about $40,000 to finish this adoption from Ethiopia, we the Thurman family is on ROUND TWO of that expense! We went ahead and finihsed working the puzzle with several pieces without names so that we can get it in Townes' room ASAP. The next fundraiser involves your name going WITH Mandy and Josh to Ethiopia!
