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? 

WRONG!

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.
