We launched our most recent fundraiser for our adoption less than 2 weeks ago. Like many families, we are using what we are affectionately calling “Our adoption puzzle” in an effort to piece together our family.

We have asked friends to spread the word through facebook and twitter. I wanted to let you know that your efforts of giving and helping us get the word out is paying off. We have had over $2,000 given to our adoption puzzle in the last 10 days!

That is huge!

Our prayer has been that we would raise the remaining $15,000 in the next 90 days which is a lot of money. Our hope is that when we are told we need to go to Ethiopia, that we are ready and able to go right away.

As of today, our dossier (which is all our paperwork) has made it to Ethiopia. So the wait now begins.

If you could help us continue to get the word out on twitter and facebook that would be great.

On facebook simply put this in your status update:

UPDATE: As of Saturday, March 12th, we had another $1,000 given. Bringing our grand total so far for the puzzle to $3,000. Which means:  We are 20% of the way to what we need to go to Ethiopia! Thanks so much for helping us get the word out and supporting this adoption.
