you know you want to smile. :)
Here is Baby D before his cleft palate repair.
He is such a cutie-- I could just eat him up!
This fundraising thing is hard. It is humbling to say the least. It is pretty much my thing because John works all day. As a stay at home Mom, I have the desire to help out as much as I can to help bring our boys home. John is the breadwinner and does an amazing job of providing for our family, but adoption is still expensive. Really expensive. Homestudy costs, immigration fees, fingerprinting, notaries, apostilles, agency costs, foreign fees, plane tickets, etc.-- I have yet to find one adoptive family who just happened to have 30k laying around.
One thing I did this week that will save us lots of money was change our full coverage auto insurance on our vehicles to just liability. After calculating what we were paying for coverage vs. what our cars are actually worth, it was a big chi-ching. Baby steps. :)
I trust that God is in the driver's seat. He has put the desire in our hearts to do all that we can to bring these boys home, and we want to be obedient to that call.
If you have any fundraising ideas that I can do at home in my spare time (because you all know I have lots of it-- wink wink) please leave a comment. I would sure appreciate it.
Have a wonderful weekend.
