God Removes One Hurdle to Bringing Baby Home…

21 Jul

Praise the Lord!  We received word that we are receiving a grant that will cover the amount we were lacking for our next foreign fees payment for our adoption.  It is due between trip one and two.  We also received some donations through Alan’s ukulele/music website/UTube which are going towards our foreign fees due between trips.  We now lack about $25,000 for our adoption.  We are so grateful to our friends(some who’ve never even met!) and family who have donated so far and are helping to bring our son home from his orphanage in Russia. 

If you would like to learn more about the organization who is given us a grant towards our adoption fees, check out www.shaohannahshope.com.  Alan and I both feel so blessed and honored to be given a grant from Shaohannah’s Hope, which is the organization started by Steven Curtis Chapman and his family to help support families adopting and to help support the cause of adoption and provide care for orphans world-wide.  We respect the Chapman family so much. We would like to ask our readers to pray for the Chapman family as they continue to mourn the loss of their youngest daughter, Maria.  You can learn more about giving to Shaohannah’s Hope or Maria’s Fund at the link I posted above.  The website also has information on how you can start an adoption ministry at church.

God bless,
