Lifesong Grant Total

We received word today that our grand total for the Lifesong grant is $5,000 (well, $4,992, but I'm rounding up). $4,000 of that will be matched so we have a grand total of $9,000!!! Praise Jesus!! We cannot thank you all enough. This money will go towards our agency fees. We still owe the agency a few more thousand dollars and then we'll have travel expenses (which we estimate to be $6,000 for Matt & the boys). I can't believe we are so close to paying for it all. When we started this second adoption we had about $2,000 in the bank because we had just finished paying off the loan we had to take to bring the girls home. I told our agency director that we were happy to take the boys but had no idea how we were going to pay all the fees. She said, "Don't worry, we've seen God provide miraculously before." What blessing to have such a great adoption agency (we love CCI!) I'm also in awe as I look over our donor list that many of our friends who are themselves in the midst of an adoption journey, contributed to our adoption. I know that God has something amazing in store for our boys as so many have given sacrificially to bring them home. Thank you again!!!

Remember our next court date is the 14th!
