8-16-16 We are still "matched" according to
CCCWA and our I800 paperwork can't
be found at the lock box. Not good news.
Praying it is found soon and that our LSC is issued tomorrow, or actually tonight, for us. Our girl ages out in 45 days!!!!!
On the home front, my father passed away on Friday, August 5th and we laid him to rest on Saturday, August 13th. It has been a very long week, many tears, lots of love and hugs. We made it through and will miss him everyday. My Dad was a wonderful man and he spent 28 years in the Air Force. He was an extremely caring man and would have loved the two princesses we are bringing home. I know I will see him again and look forward to that meeting. I love you daddy!
I love these two pictures so much!!!! Clara would run into Ma and Pa's house and go right over to him, climb up on the bed and hold his hand. If someone was on the bed, she would tell them to get down! I know it is going to be hard for her when I take her over there the first time it is just my mom in the house. :(
We have had another $100.00 donated towards our matching grant and they have graciously extended the deadline until August 24th, because of our families' loss. Below is the up to date photo!! We are currently $7,500.00 from being fully funded!! Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far!! To meet our grant, our FSP needs to read $940.00.
Here is our FSP button:
Here is the updated picture. I'm so excited to share whom our new daughter will be!!!!
I want to apologize to all those that donated over the past two weeks. I was very overwhelmed with the loss of my Father and just couldn't find the strength or desire to do anything adoption related. I'm so happy that everything accomplished really didn't require any work on my part. I had already done the work and left the rest in the capable hands of our social worker, Ashley, at WACAP.
