We have accepted the referral of a waiting child!!! A sweet little angel with big brown eyes and a full head of hair!!
I know what you’re thinking — how on earth was such a beautiful baby girl on a waiting child list?? Well we’re shocked too! She has some special needs and therefore she didn’t match any of the families in the agency advocating for her. We learned about her, fell in love, prayed about it for a few days, and said, “we’ll be her family!!!!”
So now what?
First, we are racing around this week to complete our dossier – some of our paperwork transferred agencies just fine… but some is agency specific so there’s a few things we need to complete. We NEED to get it in this week because we NEED to be submitted to court to beat the rainy season (August-September) because court isn’t open then.
Second, we are praying to hear back from the grant agency we applied to this week! We NEED the grant badly at this point.
Third, we are going to start fundraising like crazy because we find ourselves needing the bulk of our payments asap! Not to mention travel fees.
How can you help?
Please pray!! Pray that we would get our dossier finished in record time! Pray that we would be submitted to court ASAP! Pray that we would get a court date before the rainy season! Pray that we would be awarded the grant we’ve applied for and that all the funds we need would be awarded or fundraised in record time!
Give if you can!! This little girl needs to come home SOON! If you feel led to make a donation you can do that via paypal through the button right up there in my sidebar! SHARE SHARE SHARE!! Don’t forget that for every $5 donated you get entered to win THIS GIVEAWAY!!
Thank you for sharing in our joy! More details on how this all came about soon — it’s a GREAT story! ; )
