Puzzle Fundraiser...Update!!!

We are so very excited for all God is doing in this adoption process!!!  

to all who have generously donated so far to help bring our boys home!!!!

We took this photo of our family showing our "missing pieces"

We made it into a puzzle

and started filling in pieces from earlier donations that were graciously given 
at the beginning of the journey.  

Then we added the pieces that were purchased since February 14th!!!

We have raised $2,065 since beginning our fundraiser!!!!

We need $1,535 more to be able to jump through the next hoop 
and send our dossier to the Philippines.

Could this piece have your name on it??

1. Each piece of the puzzle costs $20 (you can purchase one piece or several pieces)

2. To purchase please click the paypal DONATE button on the right of this blog page
    you can make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation by sending a check to our adoption agency.  For
    the tax deductible option...please make checks out to:  Christian Adoption Services (please do
    NOT put our name anywhere on the check, instead please add a post it note or paperclip a note to
    the check saying you would like the donation to be placed on the Boutin adoption.  If you do not
    add the note, the donation will go to the agency general fund.)
    The address to mail the check is: Christian Adoption Services
                                                          624-100 Matthews-Mint Hill Rd
                                                          Matthews, NC 28105

3. When pieces are purchased we will write your name on the back of the piece(s) to have a lasting
    memory of those who helped bring our sons home.
4. Once the pieces have been "sold" and the puzzle put together, we will frame it (double sided
    glass) and hang it in our home as another example of God's faithfulness.  We will have something
    tangible to show our boys all the wonderful people who gave generously to bring them home!! 

5. We will update our progress regularly to show how the puzzle is forming!!

Because we are transparent and sharing this journey OUTLOUD...

Application/E-adopt fees: $350 PAID
Homestudy: $1,100 PAID
Dossier Fee: $1,000 PAID
Psychological update: $330 PAID
I-800A immigration: $890 PAID
The next chunk needed asap is $4,500 in agency fees to get our dossier to the Philippines.  We have paid $900 toward that fee so far:)

Our total adoption cost is estimated at $30,780.  

Although this amount looks ginormous...We know that we serve an even BIGGER GOD that places the lonely in their own families.  HE IS FAITHFUL and HE will move mightily to bring our boys home!!  

I have another request...

Would you consider sharing the link to this blog post on your blog, social media, or email your friend list??  We are hoping this will go viral and many will have the opportunity to participate in bringing three priceless treasures to their forever family!!
