Dear Jason & Heather:

We have reviewed your application for a matching grant and are pleased to inform you that you have been awarded a dollar for dollar matching grant up to $7,000. The specific amount received will depend on the amount of funds donated by family and friends on your behalf. The grant amount includes both the funds raised and the funds matched by HANDinHAND Christian Adoption, Inc. If you raise $3,500 from family and friends, HANDinHAND will match those funds for a total grant of $7,000.

All monies will be disbursed directly to your adoption agency, adoption lawyer or other adoption expenses after HANDinHAND has received an approved invoice from one of these sources. Monies already paid will not be reimbursed. Only outstanding balances will be paid by your awarded grant. Monies will be disbursed up to the amount of the final awarded grant. Funds received over the grant amount will go toward your adoption expenses not to exceed the outstanding adoption costs. Funds received over outstanding adoption expenses will help other children find "forever" families through the general fund of HANDinHAND Christian Adoption, Inc.

All donated monies must be in our HANDinHAND office or postmarked by August 12, 2011 to be considered in the dollar for dollar match for your specific grant. Funds received after this time will go toward the general fund of HANDinHAND Christian Adoption, Inc. to continue to help children find "forever" families.

In the case of a disrupted adoption, monies will be held for your use for up to 1 year from the disruption then after that time will be used to help other children and their families through Hand in Hand’s general fund.

We are so excited to be able in a small way to help a child find a "forever" family. Thank you for being obedient to God’s call in your life to help a child. We appreciate your heart and look forward to working with you in accomplishing this goal.

I'm having trouble uploading the actual letter and then posting it on here so I have just copied and pasted it (if you want a copy of it leave a message here with your email address) seems to have something to do with the type of file, idk, I'm not that computer savvy.  Anyhow, WE GOT A GRANT!  HANDinHAND is a christian organization that helps families with the cost of adoption.  We have been awarded a $7000 matching grant!  As we don't have everyone's physical address or email address I thought this would be a great way to tell everyone and ask you to consider supporting us!  Just 2 main things to point out:
       1) all money MUST be postmarked or received by HANDinHAND by August 12
       2) put our name (Jason and Heather Sorrell) on the envelope ONLY
