A Little 'Hand in Hand' Goes a Long Way

We have a son. He lives in an orphanage in Haiti. We have held him, hugged him and kissed him. He is real and he is part of our family. But...There are hoops to jump through, time to wait and alot of money that must be paid for us to bring him home. Trying to come up with the average working man's yearly salary is a daunting task for any family adopting. It is the one, large and scary obstacle that stands in the way.

We have been blessed, however, by Hand in Hand Christian Adoption, Inc. with a matching grant! What is this matching grant, you may ask? Well, if our family is able to fundraise up to $3000.00, Hand in Hand will match us another $3000.00! That's a total of $6000.00!
That is approximately 25% of what we need to help bring him home!

If you've been wondering how you can help our family out, please consider donating to us through the Hand in Hand matching grant account. You can send donations to:

Please make checks out to Hand in Hand and only put our names on the envelope. This is for tax deductible purposes. If you have any further questions you can contact me at 801-803-1449 or find more info at www.handinhandadopt.org.

Thanks so much to everyone who has given, even the smallest bit. We know that you are walking with us, praying for our little boy to come home. It takes a village to raise, love and bring home a child. God Bless you all:)

Much love,
