Beyond Blessed

As Westley and Elizabeth Ekiss eagerly await traveling to China to unite with their son, they are thankful for the generous Holt donors who provided them with a Special Needs Adoption Fund (SNAF) grant.

Here’s the letter they wrote to these donors, expressing their thanks. 

Dear Contributing Donors,

We are beyond blessed by this generous grant that is helping us bring our son home. Without donors like you, we would have a much harder time financing the expenses of international adoption. There aren’t enough words to express our gratitude in receiving this amazing gift.

The Ekiss family can’t wait until they can travel to China to meet their son in person!

We and our two daughters are anxiously awaiting for the day when we can go to China and bring our son home. What a joyous day that will be when all five of us are together for the first time. We’ve been praying about adoption for so long, and seeing God work through all of the obstacles, all of the pandemic issues and all of the  financial issues, is just truly amazing.

Again, we cannot thank you enough for your kindness and generosity.
