Moving along

We are in the closing days of summer according to the calendar.  We are moving deeper into our adoption process as well.  Our home study report has been sent to our agency to see if anything needs to be corrected before it is finalized.  This is really great news!  Once that is done, we can start a new fundraiser.  we plan to sell coffee on our blog!  All of you coffee lovers out there keep your eyes peeled for that announcement.  The company that does this not only offers ground and whole bean coffees, but K-cups as well for all of you Keurig owners!

Being home study approved also means we can start applying for grants as well.  If anyone has any advise on what to do or what not to do when applying for these please contact us.  We recently got an update on the kids and it seems they are doing well.  We have celebrated two of their birthdays so far and have the next two coming up soon.  We always have a cake for them and record us singing happy birthday.  Kim and I hope we can show this to them when we meet them.  Our goal is to travel early 2014 to get them.  Please join us in prayer that the rest of our process goes smoothly.

Since we are nearing the next milestone in our adoption adventure, I would like to remind everyone that we are still selling our hand made bead bracelets.  They make great gifts and we can do almost any color combinations.  Some examples of what we have done in the past include:  school colors, adoptive country flag colors, seasonal colors, and pro sport team colors.  Contact us if you have any questions or are interested in purchasing one.  The bracelets are $15 + S&H.  Here are a few pics.

As soon as we move forward with the coffee fundraiser we will let you know.  Enjoy the rest of your summer and until next time...
