garage sale

We had our garage sale today. I am exhausted. We made over $400 which isn't bad considering we didnt even sell our big money items. We may try to sell them another time.

Updated Picture

I can't believe how big our boy is getting. I am so excited and so sad. I love getting updates, but they remind me what I am missing out on. However I know that he is loved and cared for. I want my boy home. I love him so much. I love seeing him him with the things we bought for him. I know now that he can hear us tell him we love him.....

Garage sale next weekend

Well we are in fundraising mode. We have been preparing and will be working this weekend on getting a garage sale together for the 27th of March. We are hoping that it will bring in good money for our adoption. We have a good amount of stuff to sell and are not going to price items. We will sell by donation and let people know what the money goes to. It will be work getting set up and such but will hopefully pay off. I will post pictures along and will update when we know how much we made....

Andrew's package

I also wanted to mention that in addition to our paperwork being mailed we also put together a care package that we sent to Andrew. It included a small blankie that Mindee chose, a photo book, an outfit, and a puppy that Mindee helped to make at the build a bear place the puppy also has a "voice box" that we recorded with our voices each of us saying "we love you". We also included a tote bag and kitchen towels for Foster Mom.


Well I wanted to leave a note and let people know that I added two links today. They are to our coffee store and to our 100 good wishes page. I hope that these sites can help us to get a portion of the funds to help us bring Andrew home. If you are inclined, check them out. If you already have please know that your support (even prayer support) is greatly appreciated. I will try to update frequently on our progress.

Introducing Andrew

We are starting our journey to our little boy. We discovered him on a waiting child page and, just as with our daughter, fell in love. We reviewed his file and were matched on 12/3/2009, the day he turned 15 months old. Our paperwork was sent off to both USCIS and our adoption agency this past Monday and now the painful wait really begins. They say it can be 4 to 6 months from this point but could be longer. We want him home yesterday. So now it is time to plan fundraisers and work to get him home as quick as we can.
