What do we do now?

We are in the waiting phase of our adoption.  We have finished every piece of paper work, which is a great feeling.  The timing is now up to the United States and Ukrainian governments.  So, what do we do now?  We are in fundraising mode and prepare our house mode.

Yesterday Nathan and Logan's new bed arrived.  Preston and I stayed up late and put it all together.  Right now they are sleeping in it, but I will put up a picture soon.   They both really like the beds and are excited.  There is even an additional bed for Owen to spend the night in their room.  We still need to get an oversized chair or couch to place under the loft.  We are planning to pick up a piece we like from IKEA the next time we make a trip to Atlanta.

We are still trying to raise $21,000.  We know God called us to adopt and He will provide all we need.
-Next Saturday, April 5th we are having an Adoption Bowling Fundraiser at Vestavia Bowl.  Bowling is from 10:00-12:00 and the cost is $10/person.  $6 of every person goes directly to our adoption.  We would love for you to join us and bring friends.  Our family loves bowling, especially our three sons, and are looking forward to a really fun morning.
-We are teaming up with Compelled Designs to sell beautiful handmade necklaces.  Each necklace is $24 with $12 going directly to support our adoption.  Each necklace has scripture on the back.  Please let us know if you are interested in purchasing one of these beautiful necklaces.  These also make great gifts.

- If you are a coffee lover or know someone who is, you can support our adoption through delicious coffee purchases.  One third of the total of your coffee purchase goes directly to our adoption.
-If you are interested in just donating to our adoption you can check out our Pure Charity fundraising page at

We appreciate everyone's support for our adoption! We have the best friends and family.  We can't wait to introduce you to the newest family member hopefully sometime this summer.
