Look at all these beautiful faces!!! If you bought a shirt or shared our campaign on social media this month, thank you SO MUCH!!! We sold 163 shirts and raised $1938.89! We are completely blown away.
I took some time yesterday to sort of get my head around our adoption stuff again. While our girl is never far from our thoughts, we hadn't thought about money and deadlines and fundraisers at all these last two weeks. I knew we had made progress, but I wasn't sure exactly how much.
Almost unbelievably, when I totaled up all that we have saved, raised, or been given, we have enough money for not one, but three major milestone payments: all three payments due before we are eligible to apply for grants.
These hurdles felt impossible, and yet we are clearing them. We are three steps closer to having our baby girl in our arms, and this happened during weeks when we could hardly move our feet at all. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for you, reader, and the ways you are proving to us that our hope is not in vain. Thank you for reading, praying, cheering, giving, and sporting your shirts while we work To Get Her, for good. We love you.
Josh and Emily
We hope that by sharing our steps, challenges, and milestones of our adoption, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as she grows up.
