Adoption and Raising Funds....

Our Family has been on this journey for just about 3 years. Paper work started in August of 2007. May 08 we received our referral for the most beautiful little boy in Liberia.♥ We are unsure when Liberia will let us continue with the process. Marcus will turn 4 next month!! My heart is so full of love for him, with out even holding his little hand, feeling his little head of hair, smelling his sweet, probably dusty skin! I think often how this is what God's love is like...unconditional! We are not giving up on Marcus!
This past spring, we let God work, and let Him take us where He wants us to be.
I ask of your prayers, as the time is getting closer, but also for funds to fall in place. Mark and I asked yesterday what the cost would be and where a blown away. If anyone has any ideas, or advice, we welcome them!

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me--put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:8-9

T-shirt sales, raffles, - I'll keep thinking. Have you applied to Steven Curtis Chapman's organization?

I've heard of: tip night at the pizza ranch, garage sales (where others donate their items too), gift of adoption (grant), Show Hope...praying for you!
