Adoptions during our financial difficulties…

IBESR is working on adoptions. It is families waiting for dispensation that are affected by the Prime Minister’s and President’s problems.  Until we get a new Prime Minister in place, I do not foresee dispensations being delivered back to IBESR.  Someone who does not need a presidential dispensation, does not have to wait as long in IBESR.  They should not be affected by the government’s problems and should pass through IBESR.

Adoption funds are considered a designated fund.  Do not worry about your adoptions. The funds to pay for your adoptions are in our savings and will stay there until needed to complete your paperwork.

God will provide and we will tighten our belts.  We will stop some of the non-urgent adoption paperwork for some of the new children that have arrived, but are not yet proposed to a family.  We may need to downsize our staff, stop some special projects that we are working on right now, and do a lot of praying!

I wanted everyone to know GLA’s needs.  I do not want to anyone to panic.  God is always faithful to us. I would not be in Haiti today, if God ,through out the last 20 years, had not provided for all of our needs.  But I wanted to tell you plainly that we need funds to run the daily operations of the orphanage. 

I know many organizations that send out desperate pleas for operating funds every month or two.  GLA has never done this and I only write when I really need our donors to give to help us through a difficult time.  I also ask you to consider giving on a monthly basis if you are are not already.

I am asking everyone to pray with us for funds to come for the running of the orphanage.  Already, God has heard our prayers and people have started to send donations to help.

From our lips, to God’s ears, to people’s hearts!  God loves these children 100 times more than we do!  They are totally His and He will provide for them and for each of us.

Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
Matthew 6:25-27

Hello Dixie- Thanks for sharing with us about adoptions at GLA. I was wondering if you could explain a bit more about the following statement you wrote: "We will stop some of the non-urgent adoption paperwork for some of the new children that have arrived, but are not yet proposed to a family." What, if any, affect will that have on families waiting for a referral? Thanks for your serving to the children at GLA! Shannon

Hi Dixie,, so how much it will take for the adoption papers to be done? and if it regards to funds I know there are more people who will help us to support the children. 'God is always with us' I can assure you that. I will pray for GLA and the staff.
