A Thank You Letter to our Village

When we started Chengbin's adoption nearly 4 years ago we had no idea how much it would change our lives for the better in every possible way.

One of those ways is our village.  Some of you have been around long before my constant adoption Facebook posts & some of you came to us through adoption and orphan advocacy & some of you came to us from our Cityhope Family.  Our village is big and filled with amazing friends and family who truly support our crazy God-sized hopes and dreams.  We are constantly blessed by all of you, but today we feel extra blessed.


Because two amazing friends worked tirelessly to put on this auction to raise money for our adoption expenses and hundreds more donated items and got into some heated battles to win those items!!! Every single one of you who donated or bid or said a prayer are responsible for blessing our family!

Thank you all so much for helping us get what we need to bring home our babies!!!! We are excited to announce that you guys raised over $3,500 for our adoption! That is incredible!!!! We are praising God for his amazing provision through his people.  It's just amazing and we are so very grateful to all of you!!

We have a few more fundraisers set for the weeks ahead.  We'll try to get a few great prizes ready to raffle off ahead of the holiday season and the shirts and Mudlove bracelets will be shipping early next week.  We've also applied for 9 adoption grants.  We received 1 denial, but are waiting to hear back on the rest of them.

We have a ways to go in funding the additional expense that goes along with bringing Little Miss home, but we truly are blown away by the success of this auction and by the support of our village!!!

Thank you everyone! We love you all and are so grateful for your support in helping to bring our kiddos home!!
