Adoption News and Read-a-Thon 2017 Update

The totals are in! Once again we LOVED doing this fundraiser and are so thankful to everyone who supported, participated and sponsored. This was our third and final Read-a-Thon and it saddens me to know we won’t be doing it again. We were thrilled with our first in 2015, blown away in 2016 and incredibly grateful this year. We came home from Haiti 1,111 days ago and began believing that if God was calling us on this adoption journey he would make the way possible. This fundraiser brought us a mere $812 away from our goal! Praise God! WE’RE SO CLOSE and are FULLY CONFIDENT that God is able and faithful to provide all that we need.


This year the Read-a-Thon had 25 participants, well over 30,000 pages were read, countless people were sponsors and $4,011.83 was raised!

In other adoption news, we recently updated our home study (which God provided an anonymous donor to pay the fees for!) and got our I-600A renewal approval letter on May 1st. We’re thanking God for the provision and the extension. This extension is good for 18 months. Last we heard from our agency we are #7 on the waiting list. While this whole process is taking so much longer than we ever anticipated we are trusting in God’s timing and his perfect plan. We can’t wait to meet the newest Hodgson! Thank you for journeying with us.
