UPDATE GOD ANSWERED PRAYERS ALL THE MONEY HAS BEEN PROVIDED AND IS PAID IN FULL FOR HOME STUDY, IMMIGRATIONS FEES, FBI AND PASSPORTS. GOD IS FAITHFUL. 3-17-11
My heart is so heavy and burdened with the weight of knowing what must happen in order to make this adoption to work in Cole's Life and destination. God is showing me that only he can open these doors and close these doors. When you focus on the issue at hand and the goal that is there it can seem impossible but my God tells me all things are possible through Christ Jesus. Regardless where you are in this walk of life the main situation at hand is a little boy named Cole is an orphanage and turns 16 March 9. This child's life can be changed and touched by each one of you with a simple act of kindness donating 5.00 or $10.00 to help get the ball rolling for a home study and a FBI clearance along with more forms due to the Immigration as well as him coming for Christmas. This all has to get done before we can start looking for grants to help fund the actually adoption.
Let me break all this down for you so that you can see what I am talking about.
visit: 2500.00 we have 1784.43 needing to raise 518.57 more
Home Study 1500.00 need to raise 1500.00
FBI clearance and fingerprinting 92.00
Immigration form and more finger printings for the other country end -720.00+170.00=890.00
Whoa you think that sounds like a lot well it sounds like that to me too and I know that isn't even a pinch of it but we are taking it one day at time and one step at a time..
As I broke this all down the totally amount is 3197.57 for this part. I have 302 wonderful awesome friends on face book who I love so. I did the math and if everyone donated 10.00 it would bring us to about what we need to get past this 1st hump of this process. Isn't that amazing what a little can do to make such HUGE IMPACT in the rest of this boys life.. The rest of his life could be a long time.
If 10.00 is to much I understand there was a time when 10 was too much for us and I so understand. If you can even do 5.00 or 2.00 even a 1.00 no amount is to small I promise you God can take it and multiply.. I keep hearing the words A LITTLE CAN MAKE A LOT.. You do what you can and the rest will work its self out.
If you feel lead to donate more I promise you it will be all used solely to get him here for good we are looking at a little over 40,000 to adopt their is so many that say well there is so many that is cheaper, closer, less hassle ect we have heard it all and we did not go looking for this Child he found us meaning- his picture, his face, his name, everything just started to fall in place and we knew this was the one even threw the hurdles and hoops we are going to have to go through to get him secured be for he turns 16 that is the intensity of this situation and we believe it was all divinely orchestrated and we are living out the faith I preach and walk everyday. If you want to donate large amount or want tax deduction let me know we are working to where it would be tax deductible. Also any charity up to 500.00 is automatically tax deductible if you keep receipt of what it was and turn into your tax person.
I do genuinely love you guys I love my time on face book and looking forward to meeting you each day and seeing how your lives have turned you are part of my family of friends. I hope you seriously think how just a little can make such a big difference in the grand scheme of things. Thank you again for everything in advance.
If cant give than please just pray that is just as IMPORTANT IF NOT MORE for those who can and will I pray that it will be multiplied and blessed.
I BELIEVE IN MIRACLE AND I AM EXPECTING ONE FOR KOYLA.
