We were planning on using the tax credit from Chicka's adoption to fund Zabi's adoption, but have just found out that we do not qualify to use any of that credit this year! Yes, we are mightily praying for miracles, because that is what it is going to take. Already God has listened to our pleas and provided. The day that we had a $500 deposit due to the adoption agency, we received a overpayment check from our mortgage company after we had refinanced. The amount of the check? $492! Thank you, God! We have a $1350 payment due to our homestudy agency next week. The last puppy just sold and the payment of $1,100 is being made on Saturday. Thank you, God! Now to fund the remaining $13,000. We have applied for several adoption grants and are waiting to hear the status of those requests. Over the next few weeks I am going to be posting some hand crafted body care items and children's clothing items that I am making on this blog, so if you know of anyone that might be remotely interested in helping us bring this sweet girl out of China, please share your ideas with me!
