We are still almost $5,000 away from the $7,700 we need to send off our dossier, as soon as it is completed! We will not be put on the waiting list for our little boy until our dossier is sent to Ethiopia, so the sooner that happens, the better!!

What are we giving away??? There are going to be several options, depending on your specific needs or desires!! Check it out:
