Okay, I think that we might hold some sort of record for the number of adoption grants that we've applied for.
We've completed the application and sent in all of the paperwork for six grants, and we are in the process of finishing up one more. With all of the adoption paperwork, I pretty much feel like I've got a second job at the moment!

But, it's definitely been worth the effort, because today we received our first response. Our agency is giving us a $2500 grant for R.'s adoption!!!! We are so very grateful!!!

Thank you, Jesus, for taking care of our every need!
(And if anyone needs advice on which grants to apply for, I'd be happy to help. Isn't it a blessing that all of these people/grant agencies care so much for children that they would be willing to give money towards their adoptions?! As I said, we are soooo grateful!)

So glad you received a grant!! I know how much work they can be. It's like completing more dossiers! The summer we were paper chasing for Maylie I think I applied for 12 grants but it was so worth it because we received 3! 2500, 500 and 500! It was a big chunk to which we were very grateful. God is faithful to provide for his children!!

What a boost to you as you wait! We received a grant way back in 2010 . . . and are still waiting for a referral. I'm afraid they'll forget about us by the time we have our daughter home! :o)
