Yet it makes me feel ungrateful that we have to ask for more. I wish I didn't have to. I wish, like most adoptive families, that we just had the money lying around somewhere just waiting to pay for this adoption.
But we, like those other families, don't. Most people who are out there flying across oceans to adopt these orphans don't have $20,000 or more socked away somewhere. But they do have a love in their hearts for these lost children. They, like us, do have room in their hearts and their homes for more, but don't have the finances to do it alone.
So please, even though our grant has been matched, please continue to PRAY for our family's fundraising efforts, and donate if you can to our FSP on Reece's Rainbow. The link to that is in the upper right hand corner of this blog.
Please also go to our Facebook auction HERE to bid on a variety of wonderful items!
We still have a long way to go, and a short time to get there. The days are clicking by, which is great because that means we are one day closer to hugging and kissing these precious kiddos again. But it also means we are one day closer to needing ALL the money to travel.
A HUGE thank you to all who have helped us so far. It really does mean more than you know. In all of our adoptions our faith has been renewed and strengthened by the outpouring of love we have experienced from others. God has truly shown us in so many ways, the love of His people and their concern for His children- wherever they might be.
There is a great need in this world to find loving families for hundreds of thousands of orphans.... in almost every country. We are trying to step up to do what we can, what we feel God would want us to do, to aid that need. We thank you for your support and help in enabling us to complete this adoption and do His will in our lives. Again, it truly means a lot to us. And more than that, it means the world to these children.
They will have a Mama and a Papa again. They will know love. I promise you that.
