Here’s the latest on our adoption: we’re done with our part of the home study process and we’re waiting for it to be approved by our agency. Once this happens things will start to progress pretty quickly which means we’ll have some checks to write soon.
I have an uneasy relationship with the fundraising part of the adoption process. I do like to say that when it comes to deciding whether or not to adopt, money shouldn’t be a deterrent. God places children in families. The money is His. He can distribute it as He pleases and we saw this over and over again when we adopted Gus. Every time we needed money we had exactly what we needed.
That being said, I think it is appropriate to let people know that we don’t have all the money we need to finish this process. In our own personal giving, we sometimes have money to give and don’t know where to give it. In those cases I always appreciate it when people let us know they have a need.
We’ve got a couple of things moving forward to help us raise money. This weekend we’re having a little garage sale on Saturday morning (April 27th) at 140 Summer Winds Drive here in Savannah. If you’re in the area and have something you’d like to donate, let me know. Also, drop by and see if there’s anything you need.
Second, we’ve got a t-shirt sale in the works. We’ve got the design and hope to have some to sell in the next couple of weeks. Keep checking back here if that interests you.
Finally, if you’d like to contribute there’s always the little paypal button in the upper right hand corner of this blog. We are SOOOOO thankful for all of the people God has used already to fund our adoptions. And I know I’m way overdue on writing a post to introduce this little guy.
