As we have been waiting for the call to return to Honduras for the second trip to complete our adoption, we have been overwhelmed by your love and support. We have had many friends and family ask how things were going, pray with us, and ask how they can help. One friend held a yard sale at her home and others jumped in to bring items to sell. Another friend shared the idea of the Krispy Kreme fundraiser, and many people chipped in to help out with this fundraiser. Also, Lifesong for Orphans gave us a $3000 matching grant and this was met and exceeded. Fabric was given so that Alicia can put together a quilt for each of the children, so they have a tangible testimony of the many people that helped to make them part of our family. Many of you have given of your time, your energy, your money, and your love. We have felt your support, and are overwhelmed by your love. We have been told that our lawyer is meeting with the judge tomorrow to present some final papers. Hopefully this means that we will be traveling soon.
