Brittany's Hope

They are an amazing organization doing tons of wonderful work with orphans around the world. Because of our son's health issues (as I shared, it turned out he was not HIV+ yay! But he does have another medical need) they attached a grant to him to help him find a family. Their goal in placing grants with certain kids is to make adoption more affordable for people as the financial aspect is a huge challenge and welcoming children with special needs increases the medical costs for families once the kids are home. They work with waiting children, older children, those who are more difficult to place, those who don't have a family waiting in line for them, so they are dear to our hearts, of course.
Our fantastic church (a.k.a. the coolest church ever) is allowing us to fulfill one of our obligations in accepting the grant - facilitating a fundraising event - by letting us speak and take a Thanksgiving offering to be donated to Brittany's Hope. Isn't that nice of them?

Have I ever mentioned how fond I am public speaking? I am. Crazy about it.
Someone hand me a paperbag please.

Bereket also had a Brittany's Hope grant; it was such an AMAZING blessing that helped us bring her home. :) You'll do fine!
