During our journey to Gideon, so many of you supported our little family. For each person who gave, we wrote your name on glow-in-the-dark stars, which still hang on Gid’s ceiling. Those little stars have reminded us so often how faithful and good God is.
After seeing how much Gideon loves his stars, we decided to have Stars for Sam too. We want this sweet boy to also see how loved and cherished he is! For those of you who have asked to give, you can find links to giving platforms and our Amazon list below.
Then we’ll add a star with your name on it to Sam’s new room. No star is too big or too small. Each and every one is a reminder of how amazing our tribe is and how good our God is. We are so thankful for you all, and we love you guys so much!
We decided to earmark all gifts for the China Orphanage Fee (a portion of our required adoption fees), which accounts for about $6,000 of the $45,000 total for this adoption. Our little Sam will have been cared for by the same orphanage for several years by the time we travel to bring him home. The orphanage fee ensures that kids have food, shelter, and education. It also covers medical care and the cost of preparing files so that more children have a chance to find families. We are so thankful our boy was loved and cared for all this time!
