LifeSong for Orphans - we're close to meeting the matching grant amount -

Happy Labor Day! Terry was on assignment with the Army today - so Andrew and I enjoyed finishing up little projects around the house. We started clearing a special shelf for Jie in the school room. Terry got home so I think we're heading off soon to "play."

Thanks to all who have contributed to help with our adoption! We're about $500. short of meeting the $2000. for our matching grant with LifeSong for Orphans. If anyone wants to help us out, we would really appreciate it! The orphanage donation fee is $5100. - so assuming we meet the matching grant amount, we'll still need $1100. to bring it to that total. (and remember, it's tax-deductible through LifeSong for Orphans.) Remember to put "Langford #961 Adoption" in the memo part of the check - or with a note.

Lifesong for Orphans
Att: Langford #961 Adoption

Gridley, IL 61744

We're planning to have one more garage sale on 9/19 - but with the travel expenses and all... yikes - we're just continuing that faith walk!

We had an offer from an adoptive dad - from one of the blogs - to donate airline miles, which would help with one (or part of one) ticket - IF we find good flights with that airline.

Thanks for your prayers...
