Deadline Almost Here!

I can’t believe that our first matching grant’s postmark deadline is almost here!  So far, we have raised $270 which will be matched (so $540).  We have potential to raise $7000 total (which would go towards the agency fees of about $10,000 we still have left to pay).  All we need are generous donors to step forward and mail gifts postmarked by May 31st to Hand in Hand.  We lack only $3230 to meet our matching grant challenge which will then be doubled to make a grant of $7000 towards our agency fees for our adoption of 2 precious kids waiting for us in Latvia!

Confused about how to make a gift to our current matching grant challenge? Please send all gifts made payable to “Hand in Hand Christian Adoption” postmarked by May 31, 2013 to: (for tax purposes please include our name on the outside of the envelope only…DO NOT PUT OUR NAME ON THE CHECK). If they receive gifts after that date, it will go towards the general adoption fund for their matching grants and not to us.

We are in waiting stage right now a little longer than had been predicted due to delays with translation of our dossier (honestly nothing we could have done to have prevented it).  Praying that our dossier’s translation will be completed THIS week and that it will be submitted to courts on Monday 5/27/so that we can be considered for the official referral of the children.  At this point not sure if we will be able to travel in July as we had hoped.  It may be in August.  We appreciate your prayers, encouragement & gifts while we are in “the waiting room.”
