Fundraiser Success and prayer request

We are overwhelmed by the love and support from our church family! Our cookie shop and silent auction fundraiser was a huge success. We made over 3,000 dollars toward our adoption!!! God is so good and so is our church family! Secretly, I was hoping we'd reach the 1,000 dollar mark and God and our church more than tripled that! We are so excited. With what we've paid in and with the gifts we have been given through fundraisers, we have more than 2/3 of the approximate cost of our adoption!!! How exciting.

On a less exciting note, PLEASE pray that our FBI clearance comes back. It should take 3-4 weeks and has now been over 6 weeks. We are not hearing anything about this. We cannot complete our homestudy or be matched with Baby Shubert until this clearance comes back. We would appreciate your prayers that this situation is resolved. I for one, feel quite helpless about it. However, I serve a BIG GOD!

"So I tell you, ask, and God will give to you. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, everyone who asks will receive. The one who searches will find. And everyone who knocks will have the door opened." Luke 11:9-10


  1. So happy that you reached your fundraising goals! Next time you may want to consider flamingo flocking. Groups have easily raised $4500 to $10,000 from flamingo flocking. You can learn more here:

    We provide flamingos to many churches and youth groups.

    Good luck!

  2. We got news that 1,120 more dollars came in on Sunday! God is so good!
