Keep Nolan and our little Miss in your prayers as we wait..

Duffle Bag Fundraiser

******TEA FOR TWO*******
***DUFFLE BAG FUNDRAISER***
**FOR NOLAN PLUS ONE'S ADOPTION**
Nothing like sharing a cup of tea or coffee with a friend.
Many of us are so busy it is hard for each of us to stop and take the time to visit.
And at the same time many of our friends live far apart.
So I sat down and figured away to help one another out.
You chose a friend and the fun begins.
Both you and your friend will received your own personal tea cups plus tea. Add your own milk or sugar and water is not included.
Just help me our by giving a small donation of $ 25.00 to our FSP or our Pay~pal account on our blog.
All proceeds will be used towards the airfare for our duffle bags we are filling with donations. We have collected color books, crayons and match box cars for our children's orphanages.
Donations for our duffle bags are also appreciated.
Remember you can arrange the time for your own tea party.
And you can stay in your p.j's & do not have to leave home

Halloween and Costumes

A family who is adopting and will also be carrying our documents will get to see their children files on Halloween.  I pray for them as they view their child's listing.  This Halloween they will hold in their hands a file that contains medical and their child's history.  Much like we will be also viewing in a few weeks or month away..  A year has passed and a few months also.  I think of Clyde often and I also think about Ellie and also Ronald.  Little Ellie's family has court on Thursday.  We choose Ellie but knew we could not make her by her 5th birthday, a friend of mine paper ready was so I released Ellie and prayed they would get to view her file.  I was able to see undated photos of Ellie.  She is precious, simply precious.  I see that she is going fit perfect in my friend's family.  Little Ronald still waits for a family to come for him and love him. I pray the perfect family for him.. I wished it could have been us but with Poppy's medical and Jake's medical it is difficult for us to carry or lift another child.  I can see him in our family crawling around.  He is a beautiful little boy.. The perfect son to have and love.

If all goes okay we will be see our children's file in early December and stay a few weeks to let them children get to know us.  This weekend we will be working on planning our trip more.  Trying to schedule for the kids and their care at home.  I can not openly post dates till we now something to share..  I will though once we have permission I can share photos and videos and some of their day to day lives.

Hard to understand why things through out our adoption was such a roller coaster of changes.  This adoption has got to have been the hardest with paperwork and the cost of paperwork. Much of our funds were tight up in documents and also updates.  Each update costed 300 or more to do.  Total for our Dossier has now topped to $16,000 of our savings to submit.  Again this took 2 years of savings.  We are blessed to have some funds in our FSP account with Reece's Rainbow but still we will be short for trip 2, our court trip.  Applying for grants and praying for a miracle for funds.

We have been budgeting and budgeting yet still it has been one thing after another.  And one delay after another.. Soon we will be pass the final stages and pray we are submitted first week of November. I will keep everyone posted on  where we stand in travel dates and submission...
