It's that time again. Our letter of acceptance is heading our way and we have huge agency fees due when it comes. How much you ask? Well, around $8900.
And while that seems like an awful lot of money, we know with God all things are possible.
So that brings us to our one and only giveaway for this adoption.
Why a giveaway? Well we don't want to pressure you into donating.....If you feel called to donate, that would be wonderful, but if you do not, you can still enter to win the prizes listed below.
The way it will work, you can donate any amount you choose, either through our "donate" buttons on the blog or in this post or by sending a check to our agency for a tax deductible receipt.

Now a little about the reason we are asking for your donations or help in spreading the word......
Joshua Christmas 2011 in Zigon Sichuan
We first saw Joshua's sweet face back in July of 2008, he was just a little bitty thing, a file in my inbox....a child I had helped advocate for while we were in process to bring Gracie home.
I thought for sure he had found his forever family. His needs were not to difficult, he was young and goddness, just look at his handsome face!!
I didn't really think any more about him, maybe a passing thought of "i hope he is happy and his family loves him".
Imagine my surprise when we saw another little guy this summer that looked vaguely familiar~ the smile maybe was the same, it couldn't possibly be the same little guy, right? Surely he had not waited four long years for a family and was still waiting, right??
But he had, and Kerry and I knew looking at his face that he was meant to be our son. And we would do whatever it took to bring him home.
Thank you for praying and supporting us on our last journey to China.
