Where We Are Right Now

We have been working hard on finishing our Dossier, we will have all of the Documents we need and they will all be notarized this week!! Woo Hoo!!! We are raising more paper work funds, we will need to have 30 documents Apostilled at $15.00 dollars per document and we will need to wire our translation fee in when we send in our Dossier. So we need about $1,000.00 more for paper work fees. Then we will need to hit the travel fundraising hard!! We are trying to get everything done quickly so we can get to Brian asap. Right now, between Brian's Grant money and our FSP donations we have $5,917.50. It takes about $20,000.00 to $25,000.00 to travel. Lord willing we hope to be able to do a blind referral, which would take another $12,000.00. We appreciate all of the help we have received so far. We appreciate your prayers, we need God to help us each step of the way. We praise God for all he has done so far, it is so amazing to see Him work in our own adoption journey as well as many other families!. Right now, we are still running the BBQ Beef and Lasagna Fundraisers, we will be starting our Dessert Blog Auction this week and we know there are several families from RR doing puzzle fundraisers. We really like that idea, so we will also be doing a Puzzle fundraiser later this week, so right now we are still very busy, it is hard work to rescue an orphan...but so worth every effort!!
