Adoption update and a new way to help!

The silence over here doesn't necessarily mean nothing is going on.  Lots has happened since our boy's 1st birthday!  We passed court, passed the appeals period, filled out lots more paper work, moved houses and M actually moved to the capital of DRC too!  With each step and each new photo, we fall more and more in love with our son.  We are very hopeful that our boy will be home in time to celebrate our Savior's birth!  (Pray with us please!)

In the meantime, we will continue to prepare for his arrival!  Last week, we received word from Lifesong for Orphans that we have been awarded a matching grant!  We are so thankful and so excited to see how God provides for the last leg of our journey!

A matching grant is a wonderful thing!  Ours is a $2500 matching grant-which means that we have a chance to raise $5000 for our adoption!  Lifesong and our church, Living Hope Baptist, have partnered to make this happen.  We are so thankful and are ready to work hard to make this happen!

Our first fundraiser for our matching grant is "Cards for Cousins".  As many of you know, my sister is a consultant with Usborne Books and they have a fundraising program called "cards for a cause".  We are excited to work together (Lara and I) on this fundraiser to bring COUSINS home!! (Hence the name, Cards for Cousins!)  Basically, you will have the chance to purchase a set of adorable cards-30 cards for $30!  Your purchase will help fund our matching grant as well as Lara and Nathan's!

Please consider purchasing a set of cards to bring these sweet cousins home!  Great deal, great gift, great cause!

Tune in tomorrow for more on the matching grant :)
