We got a grant...

...from Shoahannah's Hope!!! Tuesday night I had a great dream about Elijah's adoption. In my dream I opened an email from Robin and she had made a remark about how Elijah would soon be miraculously out of IBESR. I woke up in a hopeful mood that soon (I am praying for July) he will be home. I spent some time in prayer about the adoption and the $6500 we need to come up with when Elijah is out of IBESR. Yesterday I got the mail on our way over to Sarah's for their Halloween party and there was a letter from Shoahannah's Hope. I eagerly opened it and there it was, a letter stating we got a $3000 grant!!! I was so happy and after I thanked God I immediately shared the news with the kids and called Jeremiah. He was pretty happy too. I have a lot more hope that this adoption is what God wants and will be with us every step of the way.

Last night we went to Sarah's and had pizza, then the kids went trick or treating with the dads. Jeremiah was working last night so he missed out. It was nice to not have to be out in the cold, wet weather. Loren went to our church youth group's trip to Canada to do lazer tag. He had fun but kinda missed the candy! The girls are sharing of course.

Congrats on the grant! We are adopting Landie from COTP. Are you using an agency for your adoption? We were going to apply for a grant, but I thought you couldn't if you were adopting independently? If you don't mind, could you email me and let me know how you filled out the paperwork for Shoahannah's Hope? Thank you!
