We've been a little busy...

The last few weeks have been an absolute blur.  We have been busier than I can remember.

First, We have been keeping a little secret, but it's time to let the cat out of the bag.  Some of you may have been able to pry it out of us by asking the ever so invasive question (pick up on sarcasm), "what's going on with your adoption?"

A few weeks ago we were matched again, to another wonderful young lady.  She is pregnant with what we are mostly sure is a baby girl; due June 10.  Last night, we had the pleasure of hanging out with her and her parents again.  It was great to be able to talk and get to know them on a more personal level and in a more relaxed atmosphere than the adoption office.

We are so excited to expand our family exponentially yet again!

Second,  the match has gotten our act in gear in raising funds for the adoption.  If you would like to join us, we are going to be hosting a fundraiser at Faith Church in Waterford.  The event is going to be a concert with desserts and prizes.  We are still kind of putting it together, but are envisioning a celebration of adoption, with resources available to anyone who may be considering taking a leap themselves.  It is going to be a free event and a love offering for our adoption fund will be taken.  If you are interested in coming, you can find a flier in the sidebar

Finally, we have been dreaming of someday starting a nonprofit to grant funds to couples seeking open adoption ever since we began the adoption process with Jeremiah.  We have tossed around ideas of what we could do, and what we would offer when that some day came when we were finally motivated to launch the organization.  Well, it turns out that the some day is now.  We are currently in the process of organizing our nonprofit, and hope to provide more information the night of our fundraiser.  We are planning a golf outing for the organization on September 12, 2015, so mark your calendars and dust off your clubs!  Thank you to everyone who has followed our story, given us words of encouragement, prayed for us, and/or donated.  We appreciate the support so much!
