I am a Christian
So we're getting things together for the adoption and finances are looking bleak. Even with all of the wonderful help and donations that we've received - we still need at least $20,000 to take with us (that's JUST for in Ukraine - doesn't include airfare) and we're only approved for a $15,000 loan. There are several adoption grants that you can apply for - most of them are Christian-based, however they don't view lds (mormons) as Christians. Of course I am a Christian - the name of my church is The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints. My friend, Valerie, who is also LDS, applied for every single grant and was denied. She believes it is because they didn't feel she was "Christian" because she's Mormon. I think that someday I'd like to begin my own Adoption Loan/Grant company and have it be open to all who believe in Christ. I know that I do. He is my Savior and I love Him. I pray that He will guide me through this adoption process and help me find the funds that we need to make this happen. I have faith that He will help us. I recently posted a summary of our adoption story up to date, to read it click here!
