Updated Financial Needs

February 19, 2010

Ashleigh and I have been so humbled and honored to already receive so much financial assistance and prayer support during this Adventure.

Here is where we are at after some early donations and some payments out of our savings.

Home Study: $1000

Doctors Visits: $20 (x5)

Passport Update: $75 (x2)

Agency Application Fee: $250

CCI Agency Fee: $5,000

Home Study review Fee: $100

Humanitarian Aid to Ethiopia: $500

In-country fee: $9,000

Airfare: $2100 (x2)

Hotels: $1200

Meals: $600

USCIS child Fee: $670

FBI fingerprinting: $80 (x2)

Adoptive Parents Visa: ??

Child’s Visa: $400

Total: $23,255

The new total we need would be $20,400.  Here is something exciting. Ashleigh and I have enough United Airline miles to cover our round trip tickets. All we need to do is get enough miles to cover Abigail’s ticket home.  80,000 miles is what it takes or about $1,500.

If we can get our flights taken care of via miles, then we would need about $15,000. That is a ton of money, but we can’t go get her till we pay it off.

Ashleigh and I are coming up with some ideas to raise money, but we are asking all our friends and family to consider giving and hoping you all pray for God to provide for this financial need.

Unfortunately, your gifts are not tax deductible.

You mail checks directly to us in our name, send them to CCI, Inc our adoption agency, or give on-line with your credit card, debit card, or paypal account.

Thanks so much for considering and for helping spread the word!
