It’s Go Time!
Friends and family, I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am to share that we are going to India… THIS TUESDAY!!!!
We received word today that the girl’s passports are ready and we have been granted permission to travel immediately. We are blessed to be working with an organization called Adoption Airfare which has secured us humanitarian rates and are booking are flights right now. Julie is franticly working on setting up our appointments with the orphanage and the U.S. Embassy. We are so excited, we can barely think straight!
We still need a little help financially.
In all our planning, we never for a moment thought that we would be able to travel to pick up the girls as a family. But recently, an anonymous donor has contributed specifically to cover the expense of one of our kids. They were hoping we could get enough to cover the other. Julie and I have saved and pinched every penny and we are almost there! All we need to cover is airfare for one kid! We are about $2,000 short to be able to travel as a family and experience this growth all together. I can’t imagine how much this will affect Winter and Noah, both in connection with their new siblings, but also as they have a chance to see a much bigger world.
I recognize that we are asking above and beyond for help. You guys have done so much to support us in this four year quest. But my heart can’t help but hope that we could reach this last goal. If you could help in anyway, I would be eternally grateful and I believe it will pay life long dividends as my kids are affected by this life changing opportunity. If we have offended anyone by our asking, I beg that you would indulge a father who wants the best for his children and forgive me this offense.
Please be praying for us! We will keep everyone informed as we move forward! Be prepared to have your Facebook blown up next week with about a million pictures! Next stop - India! These two beauties will be in our arms in less than 10 days!!!!!!!
