We're still here, I promise!

Sorry for being absent the past couple of weeks!  I've been working on scarves over here on our fundraising page.  Just click on pictures and then albums and check out what we have made! It's the perfect time to stock up on scarves for fall! Now let me get back to the subject at hand. :)

I wanted to update everyone on our progress with raising funds for our adoption.  You, our friends and family, have purchased 49 puzzle pieces!  That is $490 toward our adoption!  Here's the sneak peek at our puzzle, drum roll please...

Donating friends have been:  The Oliver Family; The Chism Family; David and Joyce Spence; The Simerman Family; The Walker Family; Brad, Marie, Kaitlyn, Natalie, Joanna, Kenaniah, and Elianna Angus; John and Mindy Moon and Mindy's dad James; as well as some anonymous donations.  We can't thank you enough for your donations and support of our adoption!  Also check out our overall fundraising thermometer...We've raised over $2,000 for our adoption!  Thank you again for your generosity!

Will you do me a favor?  The next two weekends I will be selling our scarves, Jollypops, and crosses (if Brian has time to make them) in craft shows to raise money for our adoption.  Will you pray that God blesses these weekends and people buy lots of our items.  If I sold out of what I have made right now, we could raise $1,500 for our adoption. And I am going to keep making items!  We need to have $5,000 for a referral fee and about $900 for our visa.  SO these two weekend sales could really help!  Thank you friends for praying with us!  We love you all!


  1. I just found your blog! Thank you for sharing your wonderful story. My husband and I are waiting for a referral from Taiwan as well. I look forward to following your blog :).

    1. Glad you found us! Is this your first adoption? Would love to connect with you. We waiting mamas need support! :)
