Note From CEO
Iâ€™m writing this blog shortly before I leave with my son on a mini road-trip to North Carolina where weâ€™re going to see some friends and speak at an adoption seminar. Iâ€™m looking forward to spending some father/son time together! While in North Carolina and speaking at a seminar, Iâ€™d like the opportunity to meet with any families in the area. On Sunday, October 12th at 5pm Iâ€™ll be at the Cracker Barrel at 3203 Queen City Drive, Charlotte, NC 28208. If you can join me, please RSVP to me by noon on Sunday at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As many of your know, our Ethiopia program just had a fee increase. Itâ€™s never easy to increase expenses, but weâ€™ve made sure that our agencyâ€™s fees are in-line with other agencies and that weâ€™re charging reasonable fees for the service we offer. Our in-country expenses have increased as weâ€™ve taken on more childcare involvement within Ethiopia. Weâ€™ve also hired more Ethiopian staff so that we ensure weâ€™re properly caring the children in our care and helping families as they travel.
Iâ€™m traveling to El Salvador next week to continue to meet with the Salvadorian government and see first hand the progress weâ€™re making. Iâ€™ll blog again after that trip. In the meantime, please continue to pray that God would give us all the grace to be a part of His work in advocating and caring for orphans.
