Seeds of Hope Banquet

Last week we were invited to intend a benefit dinner for an organization based in Greensboro called Caroline's Promise (http://www.carolinespromise4u.com/). The purpose of Caroline’s Promise is to Reclaim Hope for Orphans through adoptive family assistance, orphan care and educating the community about adoption.

It was very encouranging to spend an evening with others that share our same passion for adoption. We heard many heartbreaking stories of children finding homes with others and were made even more aware of the needs of children around the world.

Update On Our Progress

We have turned in everything for our home study and are waiting for it to be finalized. We are hoping to get the thumbs up in the next two weeks. Once our home study is finalized, it is forwarded to our placement agency and then our paperwork can be sent to Ethiopia. To take the next step and begin the international process we are required to make a payment of $6000. We are hoping that through our continued personal savings, fundraising activities and the generosity of our family and friends we will be able to to make this next payment and continue on our journey.
