Numbers, numbers, numbers
I know you have all been wondering: I spoke to the lawyer who is working on the case of this precious one last night…
Two answers to prayer!!
- First: if we finalize the adoption in PA and not CA, we cannot pay living expenses for the expectant mom; none only medical, counseling, and legal. So that made him make the decision to wrap her costs into his somewhat, give us a further discount…
So for the services of ICPC (interstate compact on the placement of children) termination, matching, placement, facilitation: the fees are….reduced to $14,500
The fees for our post placement visits are 350/ea we need 3 to finalize in PA so: $1050 and
I can probably get a lawyer for finalization for 1000 in PA.
A total :total of $16550 of which we would only need 14500 right now!!
- And the second answer to prayer? We have more time. He wants to be sure she likes us (and really she may not, we are older and do have quite a few children). So he wanted me to send a profile to show her. I did that. We will know that answer by Tuesday the day we would pay…
So using the $16550 as the base number woot woot…
we now have raised: $9078 still need $7472
And of that we only need $5422 by Tuesday!!
In a way we are committed now…if she chooses us it will be nearly impossible emotionally and morally to back out. So please help us fulfill this commitment.
Total needed by Tuesday 3/12/13 $5422.00
Total needed to finalize $7472.00 so is God working or what??
And by popular demand: the kids had another snow day yesterday. From the hours of 2:00pm to 4:00pm I made them go outside and they couldn’t come back in until they made a snowman for every child. If they finished theirs, they had to go help someone else…here are the results:
