What's Left

Hey remember these two kiddos?

I think they're ready to come home... it's about time, don't you think? What's left?

Well, our dossier made it to K & L's country today!!! Now it has to be translated and then submitted... and then we are given an appointment/travel date. This could take weeks, so I'm trying not to get too excited.

And while we wait, I have PLENTY to do, because we have QUITE a bit of money to raise, still. I have updated our thermometer. Our Goal went up a bit since we added Lori to our adoption, and I'll write a more detailed post about fundraising expenses soon.

We have a few fundraisers coming up next week... first is our benefit at Chic-Fil-A next Monday...

Then, next Saturday, we're cookin' up something else...

In case you can't read the ridiculously cute flier (flyer?) my brilliant husband made, our friends have put together a brisket sale... they'll be fully cooked and big - 8-10 lbs! They are $45 each, and you'll be feeding your family (for days, most likely) and blessing our family tremendously. So if you're local, and you want a brisket let me know ASAP, because tickets need to be turned in by Monday.

Then we have a garage sale coming up next month,... and I am almost done with my surprise!! My (hopefully) last online fundraiser. I am really, really excited about it, and I hope I can tell you about it this week!

So as you can see. We have a lot going on... or as my good friends Brenda and Shelly would say, 'that's a lotta action.' teehee.

Here's how you can help....

- PRAY (really, the most important thing)

- Spread the Word!
We are really getting down to the wire here. We could be traveling a month from now! And we need to bring the funds in now. Please spread the word about our adoption by telling your friends, posting on FB or your blog - just send them back here to get the full story.

- Come to Our Fundraisers (if you're local)

- Visit our FSP (Family Support Page) and Donate

- Keep Checking Back
We are so humbled that you would follow our journey. What a blessing it is to have the body of Christ. It may not take a village to raise a child - but it sure takes a village to ransom one from across the ocean!

Let's get these kids HOME!!

    Very excited that you are getting so close. That is an adorable flier (not sure how it is spelled either) I am praying that you have a great turn out on both events.
