Thanks to everyone who came out for our “Pork with a Purpose” fundraiser last week. It was a huge success and we’re making our way to raising / saving enough money to get our little guy home. We’re getting so close – both to having our guy home and to having our costs covered – that we have the end in sight. And for that we are grateful!

A quick update on the overall adoption funding. Originally, we thought we would need to come up with $35,000, with $27,000 by the end of the summer. Then, in early Spring, we found out that instead of one trip, we’d need to make two, making our total closer to $41,000. We are thrilled to say that through the generosity of many people (and some a lot of frugality on our part!) that we are right now down to just travel costs. Now, travel half way around the world isn’t cheap (and we now have to double this!) but we are thrilled that God has provided for us through so many of you. Words cannot express how much we appreciate how generous you have been.

Although we are close, we are still not quite there. You can continue to shop on Amazon (use this link or the one on the left) or pick up some coffee. And we hope to have a very easy way to help us to announce very soon. Most of all, we appreciate your prayers. You can join us in prayer by:

1) Praying for a speedy trip through the government for our paperwork.

2) That we would be able to travel by the end of the year.
