Today we received notification from Hand in Hand Adoption that we were awarded a matching grant up to $10,000. That means that Hand in Hand will match dollar for dollar up to $5000. If we raise $5000, they will give us $5000! WOW! What a start to this next phase. We are very excited about this grant. And, this is only the first grant application we have heard from! If that were not enough for one day, we received an email notifying us that someone had given $500 today through our blog's "donate" button. We are simply overwhelmed.
If you would like to be a part of this matching grant, please let us know. We will need to send you a letter describing the grant and how it works.
Praise God with us for these blessings.
Now, a simple housekeeping issue: from this point forward, we will refer simply to Africa when talking about where our child will come from.
