Do you hear that sound.....the sound of four more orphans about to be swooped up into a family. It's the sound of four young children learning for the first time in over two years of waiting that someone wants them....all of them. That's the sound of a child knowing that a mom and dad he/she hasn't met yet is loving them from 4,669.9 miles away. It is the sound of little hearts having part of their hopes and dreams fulfilled.
This week our dossier was sent to Poland for translation and in that package are four photo books, one for each of our children, that will unveil to them for the first time they have a family waiting for them. In our minds we dream of what we hope their reaction will be. We hope and pray this heals their hearts a little from the ordeals and trials they have already experienced. We hope that they will be excited to meet us in person as we are them, for there has not been a day where we do not gaze upon their photos or think about them. If all goes well we hope that day comes in the early part of 2014.
With this step down we are approaching the final turns in this adventure we started almost a year ago. Some big obstacles (fees) are still to be overcome and we are applying for grants and saving all that we can.
As the holidays approach I would like to mention again that Kim makes handmade Kumihimo bead bracelets like the ones below. We can do almost any color combination and ALL of the proceeds go directly to our adoption fund. We sold a good number of these last year and heard a lot of great compliments so please keep us in mind for your holiday or birthday shopping. Buying one of these will make an impact on an orphan's life.
Since Fall is upon us, we would like to also remind you that our coffee store with Just Love Coffee is still open: https://justlovecoffee.com/nicelyfamilyadoption
A portion of each purchase goes toward our adoption process. There is no better way to warm up on these cool fall mornings than with a warm cup of Joe, especially when it helps to bring our four children home.
Most of all, we would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support. I would take up pages thanking everyone individually and since you probably haven't read this far down, I wont :), Please continue to pray for us and our four children who we are working to bring home soon. God Bless you all!
