Well we just found out that we have a new number!!! We are now number
Please ignore the date at the bottom...I just though this was a cute image.) This means we jumped 3 spaces in 5 days!! Woohoo!!! Only 2 families in front of us now!! It's getting so very close! I can't wait to see a picture of our child and find out if it's a boy or girl!
This means that we have got to get on the ball with fundraising - we still need approximately $10,000 (maybe a little more) to finish this race. You can still donate to our matching grant at Lifesong for Orphans (we need another $2,600 to fully fund this grant). Let me know if you want the address to mail the check. We are also selling African necklaces, cookbooks, bows, fleece blankets, and headbands if you are interested. Send me an email at Koenigkristen@yahoo.com if you'd like to somehow contribute financially to our adoption.
Please join us in prayer as we are entering the final stretches for the referral process. Please pray that the Lord will begin to prepare our hearts and our future child's heart to become a family. Please pray for the orphanage and the workers - that they will be kept safe. Please pray that the Lord will be glorified throughout this process. Also, this is a long stretch, but nothing is too great for the Lord - we are in this process with some good friends of ours who are also adopting from the same agency/orphanage. They received their referrals a month ago. It would be AMAZING if we could get our referral quickly and potentially travel with them to pick up our children.
