Matching Grant!

Adoption Grants & Loans

Where to start...

On Orphan Sunday back in November, our church started an adoption ministry through Lifesong for Orphans.

We were blessed to be the first family chosen to be a recipient of this ministry!  

We were asked to speak at all 3 services and share our story to and about Michael.  It was an incredible honor to share our God filled story.

Quite a few people came and spoke to us afterward and wanted to know more.  Not only about our story but about adoption in general and about adoptions from China!  God truly blessed not only us but I believe everyone who was there that day.

And here's how we were blessed!  Not only did we receive a $1000 "direct grant", but we also received a $1000 "matching grant"!

So what that means is, all funds donated to Lifesong on our behalf will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1000 giving us a possible total of $2000!  We also have already received $244 of that to be matched!

Amazing indeed!  And thanking God, our church and Lifesong for helping us bring Michael home!

If you would like to donate to our matching grant, there are a couple of different ways you can.

First by check:

Make checks payable to:

Lifesong for Orphans

Their mailing address is:

P.O. Box 40
Gridley, Il  61744

Be sure to note on the Memo line of your check:  For Cecil and Cathy W. #1704

The second way to donate is by clicking on the link below:


Click on the "Donate" button and this will take you to the Paypal screen.

In the Purpose box (top left), please be sure to type in:   

For Cecil and Cathy W. #1704

This is how Lifesong will know the donation is for our family.

Once again our family would like to thank you for supporting and blessing us to bring Michael home!

God Bless!
