Waiting is Slow Work

Because we've been waiting for the American foster care system for years before starting our international journey, we know that 90% of the adoption path is waiting.  And waiting.  And then some more waiting.  So we're really used to that word here in our house.  We do have our first homestudy appointment tomorrow for our amended homestudy since the American one won't work for any foreign country. 

There have been some changes in the wind over here that I am not yet able to talk about with any level of certainty, but it looks like it's possible we may not be adopting 'Jane' as there's potential wonderful changes in her very near future.  We will keep you posted!  Either way, we will still be adopting.  So we'll keep you posted with any changes as soon as we know for sure!

We also have some big fundraisers coming soon and we'll be soliciting help from our friends and relatives to plan and execute some of these, as one of them will require contacts all over the country!  Additionally, this particular fundraiser in question will be a perfect opportunity for a Laurel looking for her projects in 'Good Works' or even 'Individual Worth' considering who these projects are for.  Also Scouts looking to get their Eagle Scout are good candidates.  Though we won't turn down adult help when the time comes ;).

That's just one project though.  Keep your eyes and ears peeled for the other stuff we have planned too.  We are still accepting donations for our yard sale, though it is going to be postponed, due to weather.  Anything big we will probably sell of Craigslist or Ebay and anything else we'll pack up for better weather.  But feel free to bring your stuff by since we will take it now anyway.

We'd also love any prayers, because this is a momentous mission, initiated by God, and prayers to do God's work are always appreciated.  We'd also love ideas for fund raisers because I'm not always the most original person on earth, so if you have any ideas, no matter how bizarre you think they are, send them my way.  Of course, we won't turn down monetary donations either and we love all of them and appreciate every person who gives. 

Thanks for joining us on this journey!
