We received the donation from The Little Pearl Foundation! Thank you SO much, Maureen! What an impact you have had on our family and one little boy’s life 🙂 We are so grateful to you and your precious Olivia who inspired you to reach out to help other families. May your foundation be blessed in the future to make an impact on the lives of many little ones who wait for a family to call their own! You are such an inspiration to me!
We just wrote out a check to Lifeline, our agency, for $3344.46! That’s how much we raised from the giveaway! Holy moly, we are STILL amazed at this incredible total!! So many have reached out and supported us in our efforts to bring Shepherd home, what a huge blessing it has been to us to witness, and we can’t wait to share with Shepherd how loved he was even before he officially joined our family!
There was another benefactor who has helped our fundraising efforts in a wonderful way. The family wanted to remain anonymous, but I know she follows our blog, so I wanted to send out a huge, “THANK YOU!!” to M. and her beautiful family. Thank you so much for blessing us and little Shepherd!!
So that leaves us way ahead of where we were just a month ago! Truly amazing to see how God is at work!! Chris and I have been crunching the numbers, trying to get a handle on the exact total amount we’ll have to raise in order to bring Shepherd home and as of now, we are less than $3500 short of the total amount we’ll need! Praise God!!
Stay tuned, I’ll be posting about a brand new giveaway soon… 🙂
