While on the adoption journey, it can be overwhelming! We were told the cost to adopt from Ethiopia would be between $25,000-$33,000...um I don't know about you but we don't have that kind of cash lying around.
We do however, have the love, patience, and calling to adopt. The money is merely a hurdle while on the journey. We have come across a wonderful program through Lifesong for Orphans that we will be pursing on April 29th -30th. We are SO excited that Lifesong agreed to support us on this journey.
The program, BOTH HANDS, has a duel purpose. Over the course of the project, we will help a widow do some home improvements, deep cleaning and odds and ends around her house. We have a widow we will be helping, and she is spectacular (more on her later). It helps our adoption because the team of people helping us send out sponsorship letters to raise support. Kind of like a 5k run, but we will be doing something that will change the life of a widow and help bring an orphan home by the end of the day.
How amazing is that?!?
