If you would still like to give, you can do so through Lifesong for Orphans where we have a fundraising page.  There are two ways this can be done.  Funds can be donated online or via check sent through the mail and will be accepted until the adoption is complete or she is in our home.

1)  Checks can be made payable to "Lifesong for Orphans".  In the memo section of the check, you must note the family account number and our family name to assure that it goes to the correct account.  Our family account number is 4122 and the family name is Foster.  Checks can be mailed to Lifesong For Orphans, PO Box 40, Gridley, IL61744.  100% of the money that is donated via mail will go directly to our adoption.

2)You may also give online.  Go to  Under "gift preference", select "adoption funding" and under "adoption gift preference", select "family specific".  Our family account number is 4122 and the family name is Foster.  Please note that if you choose to donate online, Paypal does charge an administrative fee that will be taken our of the total donation amount.

In following IRS guidelines, your donation is to the named non-profit organization.  The organization retains full discretion over its use, but intends to honor the donor's suggested use.  Individuals donation of $250 or more or yearly donations totaling $250 or more will receive a tax-deductible receipt.  Receipts for donations less than $250 can be requested.  Lifesong is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.

Finally, please pray with us that God will provide.  Will you help us pray that He will bring in what is needed?   Thanks for your prayers, financial support, and encouragement.
