We are super excited!!! We found out this week that our family was approved for a matching grant from Lifesong for Orphans!!! This is awesome news!
Basically, this means that Lifesong for Orphans will match up to $3,000 of all donations that we receive. So, we could have $6,000 to put towards our adoption!!! This is such a God-thing because our next payment to our agency is going to be close to 5,000 and we do NOT have the money. However, God will provide!!
Our goal date to have the money for the grant is August 12, 2011. Lifesong for Orphans is a non-profit organization so anything that you donate will be tax-deductible.
Please don't think: "I don't have that much money that I can give." No amount is too small, especially since it will be matched by Lifesong!!!
If you would like to help bring our child or children home please consider giving to this organization so that they will match your donation.
There are two options:
1. Mail a check. Make it to Lifesong and in the memo line write "Gibbs Family Adoption #2064"
The address is: Lifesong for Orphans
Attn: Gibbs Family Adoption #2064
PO Box 40
Gridley, IL 61744
2. Or you can do it online. http://www.lifesongfororphans.org/donation.html
When you get to the page, follow the instructions where it says one-time donation/gift and put the same info "Gibbs Family Adoption # 2064"
Please pass this along to anyone that you think would want to be involved with making a difference in the life of an orphaned child and ultimately impacting the Kingdom of God!!!
We sincerely appreciate our family and friends for supporting us through this journey!!!
