Welcome to 5000 for 5...a spin-off of A Life A Bit Sweeter

Thanks for stopping by!  So in case you didn't get a chance to watch the video with our announcements, I'll share them here:

  1. Our medical reports are complete and in order and have been APPROVED by our adoption agency (in terms of being complete).
  2. Our homestudy has been FINALIZED!!!!  That is huge news!  We are now ready to move on to the next step of obtaining United States Government approval!  Woo hoo!!!!
All of this means that we now have to really start moving aggressively with saving the remainder of the funds needed to finance our adoption costs which includes our travel to Ethiopia twice -- ($25,000).

The purpose of this blog spin-off (jump off from www.lifeabitsweeter.blogspot.com) is to share the specifics of how we are doing in continuing to save to finance our adoption.  It's also an excellent opportunity for individuals like you to consider donating towards our adoption until we reach our savings/funding goal of 5000 transactions for $5 each (our way of breaking this huge goal up into smaller bite-size chunks so that we don't get overwhelmed).  To learn more about how easy it is to donate, click here.

Take a look through the posts and tabs/pages in this blog site.  You'll find information from our bio to why we are adopting internationally and even information about Ethiopia.

Thanks for following along in this journey and we hope to see you over here at this new blog that focuses on our financial progress and at our original blog (www.lifeabitsweeter.blogspot.com) to follow our day-to-day journey.

BIG THANKS to Becky over at http://www.adoptafrica.blogspot.com/ for working with me in designing this blog.  Becky is designing blogs to benefit her adoption so be sure to go over to her website and check her out!

Thanks for reading!
