When we started the Norwex raffle back in July, we had no idea that our girls would be home five weeks (!) by the time we drew the winner on October 31. We prayed for earlier, but honestly planned on the end of December or January/February to get them home. Wow! The Lord has been kind beyond our wildest hopes. He answered prayer after prayer and opened the doors wide. We truly give Him all the glory and praise!
We originally had it all covered, but the fees kept changing and new ones were added. The Lord was kind to provide most of the $37,000 it took to adopt the girls. It just blows my mind how He provided – and without us having to ask for money or apply for grants or loans. But we did come up a bit short in the end and do have a credit card balance currently due to airline tickets that were purchased a few months earlier than expected.
We so appreciate everyone who has purchased the 75 raffle tickets so far for the Norwex basket shown below. I wanted to post one last call for ticket purchases. They are $10 each towards the drawing that will happen on the 31st. My email is email@example.com to contact me in regards to tickets. Our new sweet daughters will get to draw the winner! (And I just had to sneak in a couple photos of their sweet faces here as well…)
