Finances

We want to be very open and honest about the financing of this adoption.   We plan to keep a list of expenses and income up to date.  We’re not trying to put all of our business out there for people to see but we would like to let people see God’s hand at work in this process.  From what we have been told so far we are looking at around $20,000 plus travel expenses and the plane tickets alone could add up to be a great deal more.  We also know many people who say they would adopt if it weren’t for the cost and would like to let others learn right along side us what costs are involved and how God can provide.
