These adoption families amaze me, really, truly amaze me. You have people who are in the middle of their own financial hurdles, trying to raise money to bring their own sweet children home, and they hear we need help, and all of a sudden, our need is on their front burner. My friend, Mandy, created a facebook event called 1 in 1,000 HERE to get 1,000 people to give $10 each, to raise the $10,000 we need right now.
When we posted that we were taking a step of faith, we were expecting a 2-3 week wait before we heard anything back from the country. We just got the call from the placing agency that the country officially matched us with our daughter (in only FOUR days)! Which means the placing agency fees are due in SEVEN days, and we need to have the homestudy started in the next two weeks to provide the country with that initial information.
I've got the fee breakdown on the "Priceless" tab at the top, and I'm adding a second ticker, because the ChipIn ticker only shows what we've received in online donations, and doesn't take into account the cash and checks we've received.
Thank you all for your prayers, support, and donations! Our vacation giveaway is still going, so anyone who donates will be entered to win 6 nights in Pigeon Forge!
