We are home with Amos, Daisy, Lee and Violet! Meanwhile we have jumped in again for one last very special girl. If you would like to help with that, you can make a non-tax-deductible donation HERE that we can access immediately. You can also make a tax-deductible donation HERE that we can use once we receive travel dates. Or by donating HERE you can help provide her and other children at her orphanage the care and nutrition they desperately need. See all of our current fundraisers HERE. We are thankful for any support you can offer!

2 More!

If you've seen our fundraising page lately, you might have noticed something new. We wanted to wait until we had our homestudy draft to be sure we had four approvals. Now that we have that, we have some very exciting news. We are adding both Lee and Violet to our adoption! They each get their own post! Go check them out! Here is Lee's, and here is Violet's. We are so happy to add them to our adoption plans!


Now that we know how many kids we are planning to adopt and we can guess where we will be heading, we can make some cost estimates. Lee and Violet are both over 10 and eligible for the new $10,000 grants. That is hugely helpful and was a very unexpected surprise! These numbers are all estimates, but they give us a much better ballpark to shoot for.


Costs for Amos $20,000
Costs for Daisy in another region $15,000
Costs for Lee at the same orphanage $5000
Costs for Violet at the same orphanage $5000
Extra flights between trips $2500


That would bring our total to approximately $47,500. The two grants take off $20,000. That means our FSP needs to read $27,500. Right now we are at about $1500, but our account will soon read $3000, thanks to our amazing matching grant and everyone's support. We have quite a ways to go. We still have a few shirts for sale, and I can run another printing if we have enough interest. We are doing some local fundraisers in the meantime. As we post new fundraisers, feel free to share them far and wide!
