All Envelopes GONE!

What an amazing fundraiser this has been for our family! We are so overwhelmed with the outpouring of support, encouragement, and generosity that has been the result of this fund raiser. Within less than a week, all 144 envelopes were gone! It's incredible.

We have had support of so many friends and family members. There were also complete strangers that joined in and got involved after reading our story. I have been so blessed with getting to hear stories of other adoptive families, adoptees, and so many others who have hearts for orphans and a love for the Lord!  As I stuffed the envelopes, I marveled at the magnitude of support and thanked the Lord.

It has been absolutely amazing to witness how the Lord has moved the mountains with regards to the financial burden of our adoption. We cannot even express the gratitude we feel to each person who came along beside us on this journey of adoption, and who so generously gave to help bring home our kids. Thank you Lord. Thank you for bringing all these wonderful people into our lives to help us bring home our children. I pray that they will be blessed abundantly.
Our family prayed over all the envelopes before mailing them. We also prayed for each person who committed to helping us with our adoption funds that they would be blessed and rewarded by our Heavenly Father.
Audriana came out with me to mail the envelopes, and she wanted to say another prayer when we put the letters in the mail box. (I couldn't resist snapping a quick picture of her).

The envelopes have already started returning. I will try to continue to update our thermometer showing our adoption funds. If all the envelopes are returned, there will be over $10,000 raised towards our adoption! Alleluia! What an AWESOME God we have!

Thank you to everyone who made this fundraiser a success. Thank you for your support and your generosity. Thank you for sharing our story and our fundraiser and for advocating for our adoption. We could not do this without your help. You have truly been an answer to our prayers and an instrument of the Lord's provision. Thank you. May the Lord bless you!
