Preparing to Travel and a Matching Grant!

22 months into our international adoption process and we are finally hitting the home stretch!

There are a few more hoops to jump through, some additional paperwork to be filled out,  a then weeks of waiting to hear answers. . .

BUT. . .

We are getting close! 




crossing our fingers,

that maybe,



we'll travel to get Tyson in the next two months.


The generosity of our friends and family combined with our savings has allowed us to completely fund our adoption expenses. 


The only thing left that we are looking toward are the travel expenses...

Airfare ($4,000-5,000 for two adults and a lap infant)

Lodging ($700-1000 for a week stay....but could be longer if unforseen issues arise)

Meals ($60 per day)
*Though DRC is the second poorest country in the world, because of inflation, food and everyday items are extraordinarily expensive for it's citizens and visitors.*

While there won't be much sightseeing time while in country, we plan on it being lot of bonding with Tyson time. Making sure he knows he safe, protected, and home in our arms.

We are SO excited to have received a $2000 matching grant through Lifesong and our church, Frazer UMC, that will help us raise the funds to travel to the DRC and complete the adoption!!!

All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of what is donated goes to our fund.  Nothing goes toward Lifesong administrative costs, so you can rest assured that it will completely go toward bringing Tyson home.

Our prayer is to raise $5,000-6,000 to cover the costs of our travel and expenses.
