Because God has all the money in the world. . .

Mike and I just applied for an adoption grant through Steven Curtis Chapman's foundation, Show Hope. They give adoption grants to Christian couples to help offset the high cost of adoption so that more orphans worldwide can find homes.

We estimate that our adoption will cost $30,000 start to finish. So far we've invested $12,000 without incurring debt. We are very thankful for that. We still have some money put aside as we go into the next steps, but we are quite a ways from the additional $18,000 that we'll need over the next few months. An adoption grant would be a huge blessing for us.

*Postscript - We didn't receive a grant from Show Hope. If you are starting the adoption process, my advice is to apply early and apply with more than one grant organization.
