Posted on January 28, 2017We are at 1200 shares and need $4000 asap (we are $13,770 from being fully funded!) Would you consider donating to support us on this amazing journey to unite 4 precious siblings? Would you share this post and help us get the word out? We are in awe of how much support we have received from family, friends and complete strangers. All glory to God!
This $4,000 is needed for our upcoming trip to Congo to file paperwork at the US Embassy and meet the girls. The cost to visit Congo is extremely expensive. We have already paid for our flights to Congo but still need the money to pay for fees to enter and leave the country, expenses of translator and driver in Congo, hotel and food. And likely unknown costs that will come up.
We leave in 22 days and are so excited to finally meet Julie & Bea. It is hard to believe they are legally ours and we have never even met them. Please pray for our journey!

Posted on December 15, 2016It's been a busy week full of good news which isn't always the case with international adoption!
First we need to thank everyone that participated in the adoption raffle. We raised $4,000! Thank you for your involvement and generosity!
One of our big concerns was that Ada tested positive for TB while in Congo and it delayed her coming home 6 months as she was required by the embassy to take 6 months of medication before issuing her visa. We were nervous that Julie specifically might have been exposed if Ada had been. Yesterday we received the good news that both girls tested negative!! This is a huge answer to prayer!
Last night also brought us the good news that our lawyer in Congo will be able to have our adoption court date the end of this month! We are SO excited as this is at least 1 if not 2 months earlier then we had expected!
Our issue is that within 3 days of passing court we have to pay out the remainder of our lawyer fees...it isn't cheap ;) We have a lot saved up from the auction and raffle but still need $9,000! Will you help us with this? Can you pray that the funds will come in? Will you share our story? Will you pray for more generous givers to support our journey?
We trust and belive live that God will provide. He brought these girls to us and we won't let us get this far and not be able to move forward. We know his plan is to unite these 4 siblings and become Sangster party of 7 with us.
