Last Tuesday we filed on-line for our non-profit inc. We have approximately 4 weeks until it is finalized, but we then apparently have to apply for our TIN and 501(c)(3) separately. This is so unbelievably new and crazy strange for me, so I'm learning minute by minute in most cases. I thought we were done and ready to go once we filed and received the confirmation of the incorporation. I was a bit disappointed to learn that we still had more to do before we could get started. But, I am determined to remain in God's will and I know without a doubt that His timing is perfect. If we have to wait, I choose to be faithful and patient. I am still in awe that He desires to use us in this way. I am humbled and excited and I want more than anything to make Him proud.

I emailed the hospital last week to obtain an exact dollar amount that we'll need for the surgery. I'm going to follow up with a phone call tomorrow. We are continuing to work on the website. I am also finished with our mass email going out to loved ones. That will be our first and most important email for our fund-raising.

God is working. I can see it, I know it and I can't wait to see where He takes us! He is so good.

Happy Autumn!


I met Andrea over the phone last week and just knew that God was in the middle of our conversation. I never felt so close to someone I’d never met before! I guess we have a lot in common. Andrea is Jillian’s mommy. Jillian is the 12 month old little princess we are going to fight for. I know this is going to work, I have no doubts. I am realizing, however, that it will take constant prayer and a great deal of patience.

Matt and I tried to incorporate online last week and were feeling that we should talk to a professional. After that became difficult, we have now decided to go it on our own and let God show us the way. We are going to do that tonight, so I can’t wait to let you know how things went! We also started the website and it’s turning out more amazing than I had envisioned.

I’ll keep you informed on how things are progressing. From what I understand, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to incorporate. That will give us time to complete the website and prepare our invitation letter to invite all of our loved ones to join us on this journey. And what a priceless journey it will be.
