Origami Owl Fundraiser

I am very excited to announce our Origami Owl Fundraiser!! :) My good friend Sam, has offered to donate 100% of her profits for all sales through me for a limited time! Talk about AMAZING! We are so thankful to God for providing these opportunities, and thankful to all of you for supporting us!

Here are the details:

Everyone LOVES Origami Owl! What an awesome opportunity to create the perfect living locket for yourself or as a gift for someone special!

AND, 100% commission will be donated to our adoption fund! WOW!!

Home Study Complete!

I didn't realize just how long it had been since I posted last. A lot has happened in these few short months, but progress towards bringing our child home has definitely been made.

Our final home study interview was completed on September 20th. Hooray! It was a challenging process full of questions, paperwork, doctor visits and education. Lots and LOTS of education! Which has been so very helpful in preparing us.

Just this week our final written home study and our USCIS paperwork was sent to our social worker who will mail them off for immigration approval next week!

Most importantly, we thank God for how he is working out this adoption. He continues to guide us every day as we learn new things and make important decisions. Without God, none of this would be possible. We also want to thank everyone of you for your support and encouragement these past few months. There have been many ups and downs, and you guys have helped us through.

As many of you know, I often have few words to say, and today is no exception. :) I will have more updates soon on what our next steps are and some exciting fundraisers we have going on!

November is Adoption Awareness Month, so I will leave you with a link to our adoption agency website where you can find more information about how you can support orphan care ministry: Lifeline Children's Services
