Prior to actually being matched, we have to schedule a conference call with our agency to discuss details. We aren't involved in the matching process - our agency does it on our behalf - so it's important for them to know us that much better.
And then once that's done, we'll officially, finally, be eligible to be matched with our daughter or daughters! Matching will either happen through China's matching night (once/month) or through our agency's partnership with a specific orphanage.
And while I have a captive audience, I'll put another bug in everyone's ear. We have roughly $15,000 left to raise for travel expenses, so to chip away at that, we're selling these t-shirts that I sort of designed (with a lot of help from Fund the Nations), inspired by our logo.
Grey crewnecks are $23 each for sizes XS-XL and $2 extra for sizes 2XL-4XL.
Pink V-necks are $25 each for sizes XS-XL and $2 extra for sizes 2XL-3XL.
Kids' sizes are available too, in 2T-5T/6 and youth small - youth 3XL. Please note that anything smaller than a youth medium may look ever so slightly different than the picture above since they're printing on slightly different t-shirts for smaller people.
If I see you on a regular basis, I'm happy to deliver. Otherwise, shipping is $4 for your first shirt and $3 for every shirt thereafter.
Orders and money must be in my hands by September 11th so I can place the order. I am expecting a mid-October delivery. If you're interested in ordering, you can pay by paypal (friends/family option only, please!) or Chase QuickPay at mollykwhitehead @ gmail.com.
Thank you for all of your prayers and for your continued support of this journey. God has provided us with more than $18,000 so far and I'm confident He can provide the rest (even if I have no idea how!).
