Hey everybody! It has been a while since I have posted. We have been busy doing paperwork for our home-study and commitment documents. Well, today we got our commitment papers notarized, apostilled, and sent off to Eastern Europe via Fed-Ex. And what that means is, that I can share a picture of the little one that we are adopting!

                                           So....HERE IS LITTLE "G"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Little "G" is almost 2 years old and has Cerebral Palsy. Isn't he just precious? Look at those cheeks, and that beautiful hair. We can't wait to bring him home to love on and get him the therapy he needs. We are getting a room all ready for him. Our home-study should be completed within a matter of weeks. When I get a home visit date and things like that I will be sure to update the blog.

So, that is my exciting news for the day! We are still feverishly working on our paperwork and fund-raising.
I can't wait until we will be able to have our first visit with our little man and get to hold him in my arms!

                               CHECK OUT OUR EXCITING NEW FUNDRAISER! 

Right now we are raising funds to finish paying for our home-study and our commitment fees. Would you like to help us? We are going to make a beautiful "Tree of Thanks" poster to put on the wall of our future child's room! For a donation of $5 or more, you can "buy" a leaf to go on the tree. We will write your name on your leaf. Each night our child will be tucked cozy into bed right next to the names of the people who helped him to get home. Doesn't that sound great? Surrounded by a reminder of so much love and kindness! ♥

It is SO EASY to participate, help our family in a personal way, and make a BIG DIFFERENCE in the life of an orphan!

You will find a Blue Chip-In Event Donation Box on the upper-right-hand-side of this blog. You can donate $5 or more here, or leave me a comment if you would prefer to send a check etc.

Then, as each donation comes in, I will add a leaf. There will be a total of 50 leaves, and once they are all completed I will put up the tree and take a picture for everyone to see!

A HUGE thank you to everyone who is coming along side of us in this adoption journey! Your prayers and encouragement are an amazing blessing to us!
