Okay friends, it is time for a new question. It has been a little while since I’ve posted one, and I know I am ready to hear some voices other than mine.
Lori emailed this question to me:
My husband and I are contemplating another adoption. We didn’t get much help at all the last time and we really need to raise money if we do this again. We didn’t have any luck with grants with our first adoption, but I do know there are a lot of those out there. What other fund raising ideas have people tried that worked? Are there pitfalls to avoid? Tax issues?
Adoption is financially challenging for most of us. For those of us who adopt multiple times, the numbers can be downright staggering. Please share your answers to this great question by emailing me at email@example.com or leaving a comment. I’ll compile your collective brilliance, add a few of my own thoughts, and share it in a post next week.
Today is Sweet Pea’s 22nd birthday! The little kids are waiting for her to wake up so they can have some special birthday cereal. For dinner she chose Thai grilled chicken, couscous, sesame green beans, mandarin salad, and German chocolate cake. A special friend came over this week and helped me out by picking up groceries for me and even baking the cake (thank you Kate!). I get to make the coconut pecan frosting and put the three layers together, so I haven’t missed out on all of the fun.
Russ and all three of the older boys are gone skiing today, so it is going to be a bit wild and crazy around here. I’m praying for a happy day for all of us.
Have a great weekend. I’m looking forward to hearing your answers to Lori’s question.
