Week Two Update

Loving Choice Fees as of 8/18
There are no words to express the deep gratitude that our family feels after the out-pouring of love that was shown tonight. We wish that we could have sat with each and everyone of you to tell you how God is providing for our adoption journey. It honestly was a blur. Please accept my most sincere thanks for honoring us with your presence, your encouragement, and your generosity. Chick-fil-a told us that this was a "very good" Spirit Night. Saturday nights are usually really slow and it was the first night running the store for the 19 year-old manager. :) She was amazed at how slammed they were. Most spirit nights have 6-12 flyers all night but tonight the tellers said that most of the people ordering had flyers and the restaurant did very well. We will know the official number until Monday or Tuesday but we anticipate it doing exceedingly more than we expected. Thus fare we have raised an incredible $13,177 over the past two weeks! (Remember this doesn't even include the Chick-fil-a receipt money) I am amazed at the love that our community of friends and family have shown for us. Most of all I am grateful to God for bringing so many wonderful people along for the journey. His tender compassion and bountiful care is a balm to my soul. Thank you all so much. We are very nearly to our goal of $16k. To God alone be the glory!
