Fundraising Milestone

When we first said, "It is time to adopt," we had worry in our hearts about many things, but mostly about the costs in adoption. We did not have the money saved up. We feared having to take out a gigantic loan. We did not know if we would feel comfortable "fundraising" for our adoption.
Today, one year later, we have been blessed by family, friends, and strangers through two garage sales, a brat fry, donations, our Etsy shop, jewelry sales and basket auctions at Mama Z's Bakery and Java Hut, and a lot of prayer and encouragement.
We are praising God today and thanking all of you for helping us to reach $10,000.
This is 25% of our adoption expenses!
Wow. Thank you.
We are amazed at what happens when hands reach out to help. When prayers go up on our behalf.
We are learning to not fear, but to rely on God and His promises.
All glory be to God!
