Crunch time!

Greetings Blog Followers! I apologize for the lack of updates, but we haven't had many updates ourselves. The big wait is very hard, but we are filling our time with summer backyard fun, gardening, and dance revue for R and M. 


We should be hearing our travel dates sometime within the next 2 weeks! Eeek! I am so excited I can barely contain it. On one hand, it feels like the day will never come, but on the other, I know it will be here quickly and there is a lot to do before then. 

I am thrilled to announce that a wonderful orphan advocate has put together another auction for us on Facebook. It begins tomorrow, so please feel free to come check it out HERE  

We are very close to being funded. We weren't anticipating summer airfare, but here we are, so airfare will be almost double what we had originally planned. So, what is the magic number? Well, take a look over on the right hand side and you can see our thermometer that shows how much we have, and how much we still need to reach our goal. As of today, we need. $4,708  That is a LOT of money, I know. But I KNOW we can reach that goal a little bit at a time. If you feel led to help us by donating to our FSP we would be most grateful. And in case anyone is wondering, I will not be leaving the orphan scene once Carolina is home. We intend to pay it forward and help as many others as we possibly can, because we have been there. It's hard to ask (o.k beg) for money. But I know this child is worth the blow to my pride. I would do it for any of my other children, if needed, and so I will beg for Carolina's ransom. Will you help? Will you share? Will you pray? 

Thank you. You are helping to bear a very heavy burden.
