Earlier this week, we found out that the final interview needed for Embassy to clear our case is scheduled for September 25th. Hopefully, we will clear that day or the next and then we are ready to go pick up our girl! We hope to travel over to Ethiopia October 4th. Will you please pray with us that everything lines up (air fare routes, costs, work schedules for Peter and his mom who’s coming to watch the boys)? If all goes well, leaving the 4th puts us in Ethiopia the morning of my birthday and I can't think of a better gift than picking up our daughter and not having to leave her again. What a sweet day that will be!
We are also still short on our needed funds. We are $1500 closer to our goal and we are so grateful! If you would like to give, here is some information on how to do so:
Three more days to shop! A friend of mine has generously offered to host a Thirty-One Gifts party and donate 100% of the profits to bringing our Wren girl home! It is an online party so you can shop from the comfort of your home. Here is the link to her site: http://www.mythirtyone.com/
Once here, click on "parties" and you will see our fundraiser listed there under "Moore". Here is a link to a pdf catalog as well:
This fundraiser will last for 2 weeks and close September 14th. Let me know if you have any questions around this.
If shopping isn't your thing, it is very easy to make a tax deductible donation through our church's website. In the comments, simply put "Moore adoption" and it will go into our account there. Disclaimer: In doing so, you understand that, in accordance with IRS rules and regulations, the use of the gift is subject to the discretion and control of the Journey Church Adoption Fund, notwithstanding any preference that we may express in this form, or on any check.
Basically, if there is money left in our account that we don't need, it will be given to the general fund in the Encompass Orphan Care Ministry.
Thank you, again, for being part of our journey in all this. We are so thankful.
