Love Big: The Result

Many of you became a huge part of our Love Big campaign with 1907 Apparel and Project 615. Many of you do not know that this campaign was unsolicited by our family. Meaning… they called us and asked to do this for us. Adoptive families out there… how many times does that happen?? Very rarely.

The campaign was an amazing success. Together 1907 and 615 raised $2,000 for Lola’s adoption. The timing could not have been better. Shortly after receiving the checks we had to pay a $2,000 agency fee. Shortly after that fee was paid, things really began to move. We received our LOA in record time which has now catapulted us into travel expenses and a whirlwind of emotions and excitement. Having the gift from 1907/615 decreased the money stress in a huge way during this crazy (love) time. We know God is working! We received our LOA in about 19 days. This does not happen. A normal wait is 30-60 days and many families have waited 70-80 days. I have to believe there is a reason our daughter needs to get home quickly, and now, God willing, we will see her in June!!

So 1907. 615. How can we say thank you for your help when we just don’t have the words? What you did for our family was brave, unselfish, kind, loving, Christ-like and above all VERY giving. We pray that your business and ministry will reap blessings as you have so obviously reached out to bless others. You will always have our family and friends in your cheering section. Keep doing good work!
