Happy Friday!

Today we are soaking in another chance to hang out at a coffee shop for the afternoon. We're really trying to take advantage of this time we have before kids! Hanging out in coffee shops for hours isn't exactly going to be an option for us soon. And in our childless ignorance, we're REALLY okay with that! Not exactly bad trade-off considering what we're being called to do. We just pray we never forget that when the kids are screaming all hours of the night!

A quick note about our financial status for those who have given and are curious! Our overall costs for the adoption should fall somewhere in the $27,000 range. To date, we have raised $15,000 of that. And another $2,000 for Erin's mission trip to Rwanda last fall. So we have raised a grand total of $17,000 in with only $12,000 to go!

Unbelievable! As you can imagine, the organizations that provide grants for adoptions are overwhelmed with requests for money, so that hasn't exactly been a successful method of income for us. And yet, God has still provided faithfully...just in other ways! Please be praying as we are about to put in our application for a $3,000 matching grant...and just for our remaining $12,000 in general.

Oh, and btw, we are designing shirts today that will be up for sale soon! We'll post them on our site when they're ready!
