Yes, you read that right, our matching grant raised $11,390! We are overwhelmed, amazed and so very grateful for everyone’s generosity. Because of the large amount we raised through this matching grant we’re able to move forward with the next step of the adoption journey! We’re now in the process of sending out applications and our family profile to multiple agencies. Once we are matched with an expectant mother then we will have a better idea of the total amount we need to raise.

After many months of seeing little progress this big step in our fundraising has been super encouraging to our hearts. We know the Lord’s timing is perfect as we wait for the right child He has for us to welcome into our family.

So, thank you thank you thank you to all who gave! If you wanted to give but missed the matching grant deadline you still can! Please don’t send anything into Hand in Hand as that money will no longer go towards our adoption. Instead if you’d like to give you can send your money directly to us. If you want a tax deduction make the check out to Tekoa 211. If you don’t need a tax deduction just make it out to one of us. We most likely will still need to raise anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000 more.
