Post Office = Bringing Our Daughter Home

Right about now, a trip to the post office is such a happy occasion for me.  Why?  It's because I've started mailing out our fundraiser items!!!  Happy, happy, joy, joy!  I can't wait for more orders because I really enjoy making the pendants and packaging up the t-shirts with the "C" and "MJ" who send a special hug in each package...it's really cute! 

So I'm happy to say that t-shirt and necklace packages were sent out with love by the boys -- "C" and "MJ" on Saturday and are on their way to:
  • Thomasville, GA
  • Fort Worth, TX
  • Erin, TN
  • Greenbelt, MD
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Artesia, NM
We were also blessed by a donation by a friend in Washington, DC!

...and from what I hear, there are a few more orders on the horizon that will be going out this week!

Drum roll, please.....(go ahead, tap your desk now...smile)  So to date, with us saving as much as we can and our fundraiser that started last week, we've saved $2,075.50 towards our goal of $3,863 to start our home study and to get our fingerprinting and some of our clearances completed.  We are thrilled because this means we are more than halfway there in starting our home study!!!  (If you remember, we're breaking our total adoption cost of $25,000 into small bite-sized pieces so that we're not overwhelmed by what we need to save.)

Thanks so much everyone for your prayers, encouragement, and financial contributions!  Keep spreading the word!

Hugs to you!
