Well we have huge news to report and don't know how else to say it but we exceeded our goal of $10,000 and raised almost $12,000 for the adoption. Our puzzle is practically full. Incredible. We were definitely the recipients of the blessings of the body of Christ on December 3rd. The conversations we've had since the fundraiser have been incredible as well. Here are some things we've heard people say...
"Last night was so much fun and it completely changed my perspective on adoption."
"Seeing adopted children made adoption more real and was very impactful."
"It was good to hear about adoption in a lighthearted way, it made it seem more positive and showed that the blessings really out weight the stress."
It was a wonderful night. It's encouraging to see people who have a heart for the gospel and therefore a heart for adoption. We were truly able to fellowship around the idea that we're all orphans whether spiritual or earthly and can all somehow be apart of the rescuing process! Thank you to everyone who came and everyone who gave. We are truly grateful! Hopefully with everyones efforts we'll be able to bring home some babies soon!
