God's faithfulness. -- Author Unknown

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one

An update on our adoption stuff.
We submitted our immigration papers a few weeks ago. We are currently waiting for a fingerprint appointment. We are compiling our dossier.
We had a bump in our fundraising efforts. I had a lasagna dinner last weekend and made alittle over $200. I was hoping for more but that was good. I had mailed out some fundraising letters as well before we went for Prasun's surgery. We have had a couple of donations. I adjusted our thermometer just now. We are getting close to $6000 raised. As soon as I finish our dossier I'm going to start working on grant applications.
I have a few fundraisers in mind for the next few months. We know God will provide for our need. We just keep praying for hearts to be burdened. We know that they are because we can see the attacks from Satan not just on our house, but on others as well.
If you feel lead to donate, we have an account with Reece's Rainbow. All donations are tax deductible. You can either click on Valerie's button (the Red one) or you can donate through the Chip-In under the red button. All of the funds go to Reeces Rainbow. The difference is that I can see who donates through the Chip-In and don't know who donates to RR. Donations can also be mailed to Reeces Rainbow

This helps avoid the 3% in paypal fees.
Thank all of you for following our journey. Also a huge thanks to all who have donated to our adoption fund. We appreciate your sacrifice to change the life of a child. I'm humbled by your support.
