A Verbal Referral and a Call for Help!

Yesterday I received an email from our attorney, stating that we have a verbal referral for Evelyn and Landon.  This means that we have the verbal ok to come to their country and meet them.  Now at this point we will have to wait for the Minister to officially sign the paperwork which could take a couple days to a couple weeks or a smidge longer.  Then I will get to travel as quickly as possible after that.  I can’t wait to get there and meet my kids…see their habits…see their personalities…see their faces and let them know that there is a family waiting for them here! 

God has led us to this point.  He’s gotten us through all the hurdles, twists and turns that have come along with this adoption and He will see us through to the end when our newest additions are home our whole family is sleeping under one roof!  PRAISE HIM!!!!

We are still about $2,000 to $2,500 short for what we need for me to travel on this first trip (about $12,00 still left to raise total … to completely fund our adoptions).  I looked at airline tickets yesterday and in the past week or so they have went up almost $100 and who knows what they will be priced in the next weeks before we can actually book a ticket. 

We have one fundraiser going on righty now.. A Mystery Hostess Party through Tastefully Simple!  If you go to this link, your order will help our adoption.  At the end of the time period, I will total up the orders and one lucky person that ordered will receive the Hostess Credits for from the party!!  Doesn’t that sound like a great deal??

I will be getting DS Awareness Grocery Bags and will have 100 of them to sell once they get here.   I have one Adoption Grocery Bag left, see details here.  So if you want that one bag, let me know ASAP!!!!

There is a link on our side bar.. the first is for the Grocery Bag Fundraiser……the second is just a regular chip-in!  If you are so inclined to make a donation for our adoption, we would be so appreciative!  This would help us get to meet our kids, no amount is too small.  Please pray about it and if you feel led to make a donation, we would be forever grateful!!!

Yes, I am asking you to help us.  We wouldn’t be able to do this without all of you… without your prayers, without your support or without your financial assistance if you see fit to give that! 

There are no words that can Thank you enough to those who have helped us, prayed for us, and have supported us to this point.  You all are indeed following Gods call to help orphans through your support for our family! 

Bless you all!!!!
