THANK YOU!!!!

THANK YOU!!!!
 
 
THANK YOU!!!!!!
 
 
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
 
 
 
These two small words just don't seem enough.  The last month has been amazing.  We started by holding and adoption garage sale.  We held it two weeks in a row.  Our oldest daughter volunteered her driveway, garage, and yard to the event.  She has a much better garage sale location on the corner of a busy street, while we live at the top of a cul-de-sac.  All of our kids and grand kids got into and help set up the sale and even purchased items.  Our second oldest granddaughter, who is 6, kept coming out and spending her hard earned savings.  We asked her why and she said she was going to make sure her mommy's new sister and her new aunt got home from China!!!!  Makes a heart sing!  What a very precious soul that girl posses. 
 
 
 
 
 


 

 
Grand total raised:  $1038.26
 
Thank you to everyone who donated to our garage sale.  It is because of your generosity that we were able to raise this amount!!
 
We also had an online auction.  It ran for two weeks and had some wonderful items.  Thank you to all the amazing people who donated items to the sale.  You are what made it work!!
 









Grand total raised:  $1836.36
 
 
 
 
We just got our fingerprint appointments and Daniel and I will walk in on Monday and Dewey will go on Tuesday.  Hopefully that will speed up the I800A process a little. 
 
 
I am still, nervously, waiting for my birth certificate to come.  I am on week 6 of the 4-8 week wait.  
 


Yesterday I took my father to the ER.  I had been sitting there about 4 hours and was on Facebook and had seen someone was pushing for our FSP to get a boost.  I decided to go see if anything had happen and to my surprise our FSP was up $1000.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I was in awe and feeling so blessed. 
 
Well, this morning I woke up from a dead sleep and God was telling me that I had miss read our FSP.  I came out to look again and I had miss read it.  It was BLESSED not with $1000.00 but with
 
 
$4000.00
 
 
 
 
 
Thank you to the FSP Fairy!!!!!!!!!!
 
 
 
We are feeling loved and blessed.  We can't wait to get to China and bring this beautiful soul home.  Please pray that her heart will be opened and peace will fill it while she waits for us.

Update

Our home study is complete and our I800A is in Dallas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   We are trying to patiently wait for our SIM number.  As soon as we receive it, we will be able to contact the USCIS and they will expedite our case, so we can be sure and be to Elizabeth before she ages out.


I also wanted to remind you that our auction ends tonight at 10 pm CST.  Please stop by and take a look and share with all of your families and friends.  There are many items available and many have no bids!!!

Good luck!

We are having an Usborne book fundraiser.  It runs until June 15th.  If you have any children or grandchildren that you would love to spoil, consider buying them some books.  Books are a wonderful way to spend the summer, there are holidays and even early Christmas presents.  Every book helps us get closer to Elizabeth and to her realizing her dream of having family!   Please spread the word, every book helps!!!!  Thank you!  Use this link to get to our party:  https://w3493.myubam.com/
