I'm so excited to announce that we've been officially approved by our girls' government to pursue their adoption! This means that Scott will be travelling to meet them in a couple of weeks. It is so weird to dream about and love and work towards meeting a child for months when you only have one photograph and a little medical information. It will be so wonderful for Scott to actually hold them and get video and pictures and measurements and to see that they are real!
We are going to have to get more serious about fundraising now. It has been hard because we see so many families in need and we don't want to take funds away from anyone else. But we are getting down to the wire so I guess it's now or never.
We will be holding an online auction sometime in early November. If you would be willing to donate something for us to auction, we would really appreciate it! It could be anything - jewelry, crafts, children's clothes, a designer bag, cloth diapers, Christmas decorations - really, the list is endless. Just keep in mind that it will have to be shipped and we would appreciate it so much if the donor would be willing to donate shipping as well, so you don't want it to be too big. All we would need from you is a photo and description of the item! If you can help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have two fundraisers going on. Who needs to buy some early Christmas presents? One is through Pampered Chef and you can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/417849104942087
The other is through Scentsy and you can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/events/258904987554988
You may have noticed when you clicked on my blog that I have an Amazon Associates button. If you search for something through that button and buy anything on Amazon.com, I will get a commission! Please consider going through my blog for all your Amazon purchases!
Lastly, if you're looking for a last minute tax deduction before the end of the year, you can donate to our FSP and it is entirely tax deductible! Here is the link: http://reecesrainbow.org/39085/sponsorrosencrants
Thank you all so much for the support we have received these past few months. Please keep Scott in your prayers as he travels.
