1 for 9

People, this is a big deal.

This was the first line of an email I got from a grant provider yesterday:

"Brad & Jenny, Thank you for taking the time to apply for an adoption grant witSalvation International."

So I stopped reading. In fact, I didn't even open the email, since I could see those first lines in the preview section in emails on my phone. 

It looked like rejection. Why would I want to open another rejection email? 

But later that day, I opened it in defeat and had my hand on the delete button in order to trash it quickly. No use brewing on dashed hopes, right? 


It went on like this:

"I am pleased to tell you that you have been selected for a $2000.00 grant to ass
ist with your adoption."

WHAT!? $2,000?! This is THRILLING! 

Thank you, Salvation International! You have given us hope at just the right time!! 

We are now 1 for 9 in the adoption grant category. I'm working on a grant document to share details about different grants, requirements, and possible amounts for anyone who is interested. Stay tuned.
