We recently asked folks to join us in raising $475 in just 5 days, what we lacked to meet our next hosting fee payment. Well, God decided to surprise us by providing us with what we lacked for our 11/1 goal AND our 11/15 goal--$1735–which means our hosting fees are covered and we’re now fundraising for the rest of our connecting flight fees for the kids(which means we only lack between $135 and $400.We’ll know by mid-November what the exact cost will be of the connecting flights). We are so grateful to a generous donor to New Horizons for Children for this gift and for a friend we’ve never met who advocated for us to receive this surprise gift. ). Want to help with connecting flights? Give through this site this week or mail check to us. http://www.youcaring.com/fundraiser_details?url=brandtfamilyhostingorphans&fundraiser_id=7020

After we raise the connecting fees, our fundraising site will be closed and we will officially start our homestudy process (which is about $2000) and sign with an international adoption agency,http://www.opendooradoption.org/ . We will post another link and we can still take donations but they will not be tax deductible unless they are given (in our name) to our agencies or we find another organization willing to accept them on our behalf.
We are totally blown away by God’s provision for these 2 children to come spend Christmas with us! We give Him the credit for moving hearts to generously share with us so they can be welcomed into our family. We are praying that the kids’ will be receptive to our love and care while in America and that God will provide for us as we embark (hopefully) on the adoption process.
Thank you for your kind words, prayers & generosity!
