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 the link 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 are so excited and humbled to share that we have been awarded two matching grants: $5000 from Lifesong for Orphans and $5000 from the Tim Tebow Foundation! That means that every dollar given to help bring Sam home – up to $10,000 – is matched dollar for dollar. $10,000 becomes $20,000…which is almost half of the total for this adoption!
Adoption expenses include the home study, agency fees, immigration applications, dossier preparations, visas, travel, and the orphanage fee, which ensures that kiddos like Sam 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!
