$4254 is all we lack now to meet our 2/14/13 fundraising goal(this is our first fundraising goal for adoption expenses–homestudy, dossier papers, USCIS approval etc that are involved in first stage of paperwork)! Our kids will NOT know we are trying to adopt them until after we make it through these first paperwork hurdles. If 22 people could find only 20 of their friends or family members to give $10 each, we’d meet this fundraising goal easily! Helping 2 older orphans find their forever family is a cause that is surely work giving $10!

You can also make a tax deductible donation towards the fees with our international adoption agency, An Open Door Adoption Agency. To mail to our international adoption agency, please include a note saying “We wish to make this contribution to An Open Door Adoption Agency. We would “like or prefer” that the funds be used to aid the adoption process of the Heather & Alan Brandt family. An Open Door Adoption Agency, Inc., P.O. Box 4, 218 E. Jackson St., Thomasville, GA 31799.
We’ve officially begun homestudy! This makes the 3rd one we’ve done since 2007-08. I wish I could say they get easier (or cheaper!) but they really don’t. Please pray it is finalized quickly (neither of our other 2 were so maybe 3rd time’s the charm?) and that God will provide what we lack for our initial paperwork stage. We cannot let the host kids know we are serious about adopting them until after homestudy is finalized and we get USCIS approval.
Want to make a difference in helping us to add our host kids to our family as soon as possible? Please share this with others you know on fb: If 30 of us could find just 20 friends to give $10 each, our first adoption fundraising goal would be met easily. Please consider sharing with your friends so that we can (1) let the kids know quickly that we want them in our family through adoption & (2) so we can apply for adoption grants. $4404 is all we lack now to meet our new fundraising goal to be raised (we hope) by February 14th, 2013. If 30 of us could find just 20 friends to give $10 each, this goal would be met easily. http://www.youcaring.com/adoption-fundraiser/Bringing-L-E-Home-from-Latvia/38396
