Lia Sophia Fund Raiser

Ok, we just got word that we’ve been officially matched with ‘Grace’ and can start raising the funds we’ll need to bring her home! We’re starting with a Lia Sophia party and I can already hear some of the conversations that will be taking place at our friends’ houses…’But honey, I NEED to buy a new necklace to help out an orphan!’ We hope to have a lot of fun with this and get closer to our goal, but in all seriousness we appreciate all of you who have been praying for us and Grace and those who will be able to participate in this with us. For more information you can click the Lia Sophia Jewelry Fund Raiser button on the right side of the page. Another way you can help is to spread the word…if you know friends who like jewelry or have a blog where you can repost this we’d really appreciate the help!

Josiah has had a few days to process the news of the adoption and is ready to share! Today he excitedly told a friend at church and a policeman all about a new girl who was coming to live at his house after his birthday to be his new sister.  The friend gave a quick glance at my tummy and I just laughed…no way am I ready to go through another crazy Dean pregnancy right now! It’s neat to see him already including her in our prayers and everyday conversation.

Philip and I got our first round of fingerprints done today and I’ll be ready to send in all the info for our background checks tomorrow. We’re still waiting on the director of Reece’s Rainbow to get back in town (sometime early next week) to officially match us with ‘Grace’ and then we need to start fund raising pretty aggressively. We already have the first one planned and it will be ready to go as soon as we get word from RR…and it should make many of female friends pretty happy (their husbands might not be so happy with us)! We’re continuing to pray about other ideas…everything from a dinner and silent auction to garage sales to me trying to get an online tutoring job for awhile.  We continue to ask for your prayers for us as we try to balance what needs to happen for this adoption and our everyday lives.
