Opened up the Adoption Checking Account!

So SUPER excited because we opened up the adoption checking account which will hold all of the funds we use to pay for our adoption expenses.  To get things going, we've also started collecting 'spare change and dollars' at home.  Whenever we have leftover change, find money, or before we spend on anything frivolous, we have to put money into the baby bottle banks.  There are two of them in our house so far.  One is for the boys and it says "Our Sister" and the other is for Tony and me and it says "Our Daughter".  The boys also add money to the bottle from their allowance to help bring their sister home. Hopefully, we'll be able to go to the new bank account each week to deposit money into the account.  As we save and receive love gifts from others, we'll increase our savings gauge that you'll see on the right side of the blog.  It's so tough spending now because every time I think about spending a dollar on something other than the adoption, I think "This is one dollar taken away from bringing my daughter home."  That definitely helps me to keep things in perspective. Here's to saving!!!
