First, the most exciting news of all…. we will meet Matthias Samuel on October 19th. An induction has been scheduled for first thing Tuesday morning. We will be leaving for St. Louis bright and early Tuesday to be their for our son’s birth. Taylor and Isabelle will be joining us for this amazing adventure. We are so excited that they are able to go with us!
We are happy to report that our Hand in Hand grant was matched completely… and then some. As of Friday, $4020 in donations had come in, $2500 of that was matched….. making our grant total $6520. We will get another update tomorrow, in case any last minute checks have rolled in. Our adoption expenses to date (agency fees, home study fees, legal fees etc) for both Mattie’s adoption and the finalization of Emma and Aiden’s adoption total $6650.00. So as you can we are in GOOD SHAPE to pay our adoption bills.
We would like to thank each of you who partnered with us on this adoption. We are so grateful.
If you haven’t had a chance to give and are still wanting to give, you may make donations through our paypal link in the sidebar or by sending a check to Tekoa 211 (tax deductible): PO BOX 214 Beaver Crossing, NE 68313 (please use a post it or attach a note stating, “Loux Adoption”)
Currently, we are in need of about $1000 to cover our adoption travel. Any money that we do not use toward travel will go into our VAN FUND! (As you know we will need a larger vehicle ASAP!)
