We have been completely overwhelmed by the generosity of so many that have given to the Both Hands project to help with our adoption costs. When we began planning for the Both Hands project, we needed to raise about $19,000 to cover the "anticipated costs" of the adoption. We were able to get a no-interest loan for $10,000 to help pay for the dossier fee which was due in mid-June. As we set a goal for the Both Hands project, I recommended that we set a goal of $5000, but Alicia said that we would need about $9000 to $10,000 for traveling to Honduras and covering all of the fees for finalizing the adoption. We set the goal at $10,000. I did not believe that we would come close to reaching that goal. We received an email yesterday informing us that we have received $10,782 toward our Both Hands project. The great thing about this is that now we are completely ready to travel, and any more money that is donated to the project will help us pay back the $10,000 loan.

For all of you that have been praying for us, and for those that have given time and money to help us - THANK YOU!
