This is just an update on the Lia Sophia Party…it’s ending this week! All online sales will end this Friday (so if you’ve been meaning to order you need to click on the button to the right soon!) so Tracy can submit them and get the jewelry sent out to everyone who ordered. We want to thank everyone who participated and we’ll look forward to seeing you all glammed up in new necklaces and earrings!

As far as the adoption progress we are making good headway. I’m hoping the final copy of the home study will be in the mail today and when that’s in hand I’m almost ready to send out our petition to the US government. continue reading…

Just a quick note here…the home study is done! Our social worker is in the process of sending us the complete copy today. Once that is in hand we can send in our application to the US government for adoption and start filling out applications for grants! It feels so good to have that big step done!

It’s been a long week of staying up after the kids go to bed to work on applications, financial statements, reference letters and copies. We need to get our fingerprints done and sent in to start the background checks and then we wait about a month for them to come back and the home study to be complete. We also sent in our first commitment paper for Grace yesterday and hope to get the other one sent out tomorrow. As several of you have noticed, she has been moved from the ‘Waiting Children’ site and is now listed as having found a forever family. When all of our paperwork and deposit has reached Reece’s Rainbow (and the director gets back in town) we will be officially matched with her and can start fund raising. It is very exciting to have this started! continue reading…
