July Adoption Update

We are in the book!  Now we wait...

Please join us in praying for our birth parents and child!  We could get a phone call anytime, which is really exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time.

Our profile will also be going up on the website, so when I see it up (I just checked and it isn't up yet), I'll throw a link here so you can see it too!

We are officially over the halfway point for paying for the adoption.  YAY!  :)  Our dinner wasn't very well attended, but the people were generous and loved the things in our raffle.  We even had our friends, Paul and Shannon drive all the way from Howard to be with us (which was amazing!).  They are working with LSS and adopting too!  With our local Thrivent chapter matching up to $500, we raised almost $1400!  So on we go, setting as much as we can aside from our monthly budget, and getting ready for some craft shows this fall to pay off the LAST TWO payments.  The first of which is the largest at $7500, and then $1500 at the very end of the process.  We also have sent in applications for a couple of grants that would really help offset some of the cost.

The amazon ad over there on the right as brought in $125 so far.  Not too shabby for doing a little shopping.  :)  Thanks for thinking of us when you make those purchases and stop here first!

I don't know if I have mentioned this already, but we won't be able to post pictures of the baby on here until we have officially adopted him or her, which is 6 months after they come to live with us.  I haven't quite decided how we are going to handle that, but just so you know, things might go completely quiet around here for awhile or the entire blog might go private and you will need a password.  Still working on that one.

That's it for now, hopefully baby news sooner than later!

  1. I know what you mean about the picture process. Shannon and I just decided that at the 6th month period we are going to upload a thousand and four pictures of the baby that we take along the way. It will be a cuteness overload!

    Congrats on getting this far. Keep it up!
