If you know the Glahn family, you know our “son” Carlos and his wife Karla. They are in the process of adopting a little boy from China. And they are raising funds by selling adoption t-shirts. The styles include a long sleeved and a baseball raglan in addition to a typical t-shirt.
Our grandson-in-love is 9 months old, and they have named him Asher (Gen. 30:13). They expect to travel in five to six months, though Carlos is praying for a miracle of January travel.
Their adoption agency has asked them to get the remainder of their funds in order. Because or their friends’ generosity and spreading the word, they have sufficient funds to cover their final agency fees. But what they lack are in-country adoption costs and travel expenses.
The agency has stated that a good estimate of in-country + travel costs is $15,500. (This estimate includes official in-country adoption costs, in-country transportation, hotel accommodations, guide/driver services, economy flights to/from China, etc.) Karla and Carlos estimate they still need about $7,000-$10,000.
So they are hoping to raise $5,000 with this current t-shirt fundraiser to cover a portion of the in-country fees and travel expenses. How to help? Please pray, share (email and social media), or buy a shirt.
Those who desire to give a tax-deductible donation instead of buying a t-shirt can go to their Pure Charity page.
