Traveling to Colombia to Adopt Jose!

Dear Friends and Family,                                                                                June 10, 2018

 

 We have good news.  We plan to travel to adopt Jose in late June or July!!  As you all know, this has been a long process, and we have seen God’s hand at work since the beginning of our adoption journey.  Being able to Skype with Jose weekly has been extremely helpful in keeping our bond with him.  For only staying with us for three weeks last summer, we really felt like he was part of the family from the minute he stepped off of the plane!

            There are some more expenses when it comes to adopting.  While our first adoption agency required two trips to Bulgaria, our new one only requires one trip to Colombia.  We’ve decided to bring Mark and Ella, which adds more money to be raised, but we are confident in this decision.  We still need to raise $5,000 more.  Checks can be made payable to “Lifesong for Orphans” to receive a tax deduction.  Write “McMullin adoption, 6481” in the memo line.  You can mail a donation to: 

Andy and Emily McMullin

211 Golden Rain Lane

Bel Air, MD  21015

or you can hand it to us if we see each other.  

            We ask for your continued prayers as we await our official travel date, and appreciate any advice you have on our travel plans.

 

                                                                                                      God bless,
