adoption update

Hey Everyone!

A little bit of an update for ya.... we are almost done with the hardest part of the paperwork. We still have to go get physicals done, but then after that things should really get going. We have 2 adoption classes left to take, and also at some point they will assign us a social worker. I just really want things to get going so we can bring our baby girl home quickly! :-)
Dave and I will be putting on a garage sale  (early Feb... probably the 3 &4) to help raise funds to bring home our daughter from Uganda. We could use your help… If any of you have stuff that you’d like to donate to help us, please send me an email or comment on this post. If you have heavier items that you’d like to donate but you do not have a truck, please let me know and we can come and pick it up. We will also be doing a bake sale at the garage sale, so if any of you do not have stuff that you could donate to the garage sale, but you enjoy baking we'd love you to donate baked goods for us to sell! 

We really covet your prayers. Please be praying that:
-the process would go smoothly and quickly
-that God would provide the funds needed
-that we would have LOTS of opportunities to advocate for adoption, and with that be able to share the gospel and how God has adopted us. 

lotsa love,

Hi! I actually found your blog through instagram! My husband and I are adopting from Ethiopia, and we have similar timelines! I have enjoyed reading your blog so far and can't wait to see how your journey unfolds :)
