Incredible Generosity

In my last post I mentioned that I was fund raising so that I can buy gifts to take to the kids in the orphanage.  I’m so thankful for all of the support we have received.  The generosity from family, friends and strangers has been awesome.  Thank you so much!  It is getting so close now and we are so excited to put smiles on those little one’s faces with the gifts we bring.

Getting so close!

This has been an amazing adventure so far! We are so close to getting our little man – it’s unbelievable! Just today we heard that he got his passport! We are probably going to get him BEFORE CHRISTMAS! I am seriously getting butterflies thinking about it!

Well anyways… We got this puzzle made of the latest picture of him and it is so cute! Haha! I am selling each puzzle piece for $5. When you buy/sponsor a piece you right your name on the back of it and when they are all bought we will put the puzzle together and frame it in a two-sided glass frame so that when he’s older we can show him the names of all the people that helped to bring him home! I cannot thank everyone enough for all that they’ve done for my family and me. This has been a long hard process but all of you guys made a big difference. Thanks you!

Cougar Pendants

I’ve been making pendants with our school logo on them and have had a lot of support from a lot of students, football players and parents. Thank you so much. If you would like one with a different picture on it, let me know and I can make it.

My Brother

We FINALLY got our referral! We are so excited! Our little boy will be two in January! He is healthy and beautiful.  

We are still waiting on a few things, but I can’t wait to go get him.

I’m so thankful for all of the support that I’ve had in raising money to go to Africa to get my brother.  

Thank you to everyone!


Bottle Drive

This past Saturday I did a bottle drive in my town and it was a huge success! I made $350! I’d like to thank every one who donated bottles and what so many people have done for me! THANKS

Getting Closer!!!

Hey guys, I’m really sorry I haven’t been posting any blogs. My life has been really hectic with a lot of things lately and I haven’t had the chance to blog. Our adoption just took a big turn! We switched adoption agencies and are now with “A Love Beyond Borders”. If we stayed with the same adoption agency that we were with than it probably would have taken us until next year. The agency that we’re with now the earliest we will get him is probably August. The reason is because they already have babies waiting! We are wanting to get a 14 months old baby or younger. We will probably get a picture of him within a month. I will post a picture of him as soon as our case passes court and he is legally ours. I need a big favor from any one who is reading this. “PLEASE GET PEOPLE TO LOOK AT MY BLOG”!!! I would love to get some more T-shirt or necklace orders.  We are closer than we thought we were from going to pick our little boy up and I need help! I only have $1,500 and I need $4,000!!! Please help me get to 4,000 before I go to Africa!
