I want all of you to know how very grateful we are that you have so generously shown your love for and desire to rescue our son! Yet, we want to respect that what you give and how you give is between you and God and we want you to get your reward in heaven. We take very seriously scripture and especially when it comes to giving and we know many of you want to do your giving in secret not to be praise here on earth, but to show your love for God and His people. That is why we don't "out" anyone here on our blog, when you share your stories with us we want to write about it to give glory to God and let Him reward you. So we are left wanting to lavish many thank you's on you but knowing that is not why you gave and not wanting to take away from God's blessing and honoring your gift.
I have been told that Reece's Rainbow will give us a list of everyone who has donated to our grant and I want so badly to have that list so I can handwrite thank you notes to all of you. That would make it a little easier for us to accept the money if we could personally thank all of you. But after some thought and prayer I don't think we should see who donated. When we donate to other adoption funds we like staying anonymous (unless there is a wonderful story of God's provision and glory we want to share with the family) because we don't do it for praise, we do it for the God and for the children. I am sure that is why you do it too. So as hard as it is, we are leaving the rewards and blessings to God and we hope our simple 'thank you' expresses how grateful we are.
