Our family is answering God’s call on our life to open our home to adopt a group of siblings from the Philippines. We have completed our home study through Bethany Christian services, and are now working to get our international paperwork complete so that we can be considered for a referral.
One of the ways you can help us right now is to pray that God with give us favor with all the agencies involved as we submit mountains of paperwork, and that we would see His provision for the financial expenses of this international adoption.
Another way you can help us raise the estimated $26,000 for our adoption is by doing something you might possibly do every week…buy coffee! We have created a storefront through Just Love Coffee, a Christian company that helps adoptive families fund their adoptions. Roasting Fair Trade Specialty coffees, Just Love uses proceeds to help an Ethiopian orphanage and families adopting not just from Ethiopia, but from anywhere in the world. For every bag of coffee you purchase through our storefront, we receive $5.00 toward our adoption expenses.
So, we invite you to visit our Just Love Coffee storefront at http://www.justlovecoffee.com/thecates
Make sure you cut and paste the link as-is, so that we get credit towards our adoption expenses for your purchase. Please feel free to pass this link on to all the coffee drinkers you know!
If you would like more information on how you can minister to children in need of families through adoption, or how you can help us with our adoption journey, please send us an email at email@example.com.
