Ok everyone, I know this is the second post today but I have been on the phone the majority of this morning and we are at a critical time in our Adoption process.
This is where we have to ask for YOUR help!
We cannot do this without the support of our friends and family.
I talked to the USCIS Officer today that is in charge of our case. She said we are ready to go to get our fingerprints as soon as she gets the completed homestudy.
The social worker said the homestudy will be to us this week.
Once we get the homestudy to the USCIS Officer (Immigration) then she will set our fingerprint appointment which could be within about 2 weeks.
From there we will then get our I-171 aprroval letter from USCIS and be able to send off our Dossier - (Eastern Europe Adoption paperwork)
Then within a matter of a week or two we will have our SDA Appt which means we will be in country within about 2 weeks from then.
I know that was a lot of 2 weeks from here and 2 weeks from there but what that adds up to is about 7 to 8 weeks or the first of October for us to travel to get our son.
We have worked hard and with the help of many we have raised about $4,000 to date and have completed all of our stateside paperwork.
We now need YOUR help to get the final funding together.
We need to raise another $21,000 to cover his visa, passport, court costs, travel expenses, birth certificate, translator, facilitator and so much more that I'm sure I'm forgetting within the next 7 to 8 weeks .
Would you please pray and ask God what you can do to help us get there?
We know with out a doubt that God will provide!
Please pray over your donation and ask God to multiply it and to bring in the remaining funds needed.
We have lots of events available for you to attend as well as fundraiser items you can buy all listed on the sides of this blog.
Just think if 21 people were able to donate $1000 we'd be there!
Or 42 people to donate $500 we'd be there!!
No amount is too small to make a difference every bit helps and we need your help to save our son!
One great way you can help and have a special part in Sergiy's journey home is to purchase a puzzle piece for yourself and loved ones. He will get hte puzzle when he comes home and it will have the names of everyone who purchased puzzle pieces to help bring him home on the back! We have 955 puzzle pieces available right now. $10 a piece adds up!
Won't you be a part of saving the life of an orphan?
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world
Won't you help give Sergiy a family full of love, a future and a hope?
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future"
Thank you all so very much for praying about how you can help Sergiy.
