He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him. Psalm 126:6

We Got our Verbal Referral!

I promised in my last blog post (from June) to be a better blogger, but you can see that I lied.  But honestly, I haven't had a great deal to post until today.  We received our verbal referral for our two girls in Bulgaria!  That means that all we need is one more signature and our agency can issue us travel dates.  Scott will be going on the first trip to meet our two newest daughters.  Just a reminder, here they are: 

Stunning "S"

Gorgeous "G"
S turns 5 this month; G turns 9.  That means that next fall, we will celebrate 8 birthdays between August 19 and October 14.  That's a lot of cake!
Now that we are getting closer, it is time to fundraise a bit for the adoption.  S had an adoption grant already so that will help with first trip costs.  After that, we need to get to work.  So here are a couple of ways you can help!
We have an FSP with Reeces Rainbow.  This allows folks to donate towards our adoption and receive a tax deduction, just like you are donating to any other charity.  Here is the link:
Also, I have recently signed up to be a distributor with Young Living oils.  Ya'll, I am over the moon for essential oils!  I am going to have to do an entire blog post about all the healing we are experiencing since we started using them.  If you have been thinking about starting with the oils and need some help AND would like to help fund our adoption at the same time, now is your chance!  Just email me at eightisnotenough2012@gmail.com.
We also still have an Amazon link.  It is on the top left of the blog.  If you click through and then shop on Amazon, it doesn't cost you anything but we get a commission!  So easy!
I am hoping to do an auction like a did last year.  I will be needing donations.  More on that to come. 
Thank you all for being so supportive of our family over the past two years.
