That Post: The one where we ask for money one last time

Sorry guys. It has to be done. You have all been amazing and supportive through this process. I almost titled this post “the F word” You know. Fundraising? But I decided that probably wouldn’t be a good idea considering I am asking everyone to share this. So here’s the deal:

We have $14,000 in adoption expenses left. We leave in 3 and 1/2 weeks. We need to come up with around $8,000 to make this happen! We are asking everyone to share and donate $5, $10, $25… whatever to help us reach this goal. We have two ways to donate, straight through our agency or through paypal. Both links are included below. We are putting this info out there humbly, and with a little bit of weirdness. We know we cannot get Lola home by ourselves and we are immensely thankful to anyone who would care to take part in her story. God has been faithful and He will see us through this journey!

Lola, 5 years old, coming home in June!

Donate through paypal here.

Donate directly through our agency here. Select Eternal Family Fund under designation and put Erica and Calvin Ho in the notes section. All funds given will go directly toward Lola’s adoption expenses.

  • As an adopted child (who has met his birth mother) I can honestly say that you are changing, heck SAVING, a child’s life.
    And as a pastor and former church planter I can relate to the frustration of fund raising. So I pray that God provides for this wonderful thing that you are doing!

    • Jimmy, As an adoptive mom I can’t tell you how priceless that comment is. Please know that our children, who have come to us by way of adoption, are the most precious gifts. I cannot even explain the deep love I have for my children. I am honored that I was chosen to parent them. Thank you so much for sharing your heart.
