Excited Again...:)

The whole family is finding ourselves getting excited again... :)

What once really stressed us out is now bringing us great joy!

This summer, I will set up a savings account. Then, I can start to put little bits of $$ here and there away. Every little bit helps, right?

I figure, that way, the amount that we need to raise might not seem so monumental. We have a little of the $$ that we raised initially that we did not lose in our deposit and that will go into the account. Then, things will be sold, fundraisers will begin, etc...

This will be life-changing for all of us which is exactly WHAT it should be. Rescuing an orphan will be the best thing that ever happened to us. Yes, I am sure that the child will benefit, but I think that we will benefit more from the lessons that we learn in that we CAN make a difference in this world that often seems so overwhelming with its problems and troubles.

One less orphan is one less orphan....

So Long.....Update

It has been so long, but we are still here.

Things went so crazy in my house last year. My son, Tobey entered the hospital in March for a pressure sore on his hip. 30 DAYS and 2 SURGERIES later, he was finally discharged! Things have been crazy! We are STILL battling the wound and STILL have a sand/air bed in our living room on which he sleeps....

Needless to say, this paused our adoption plans. :( N was adopted by another family which is bittersweet for me. While I am thrilled that he is no longer an orphan, my heart is broken that he was not placed with my family. :(

However, as much as I try to NOT think about adoption, it is something that still weighs heavily on my heart.

So, I have decided that we WILL still adopt. I have set a goal for us. We will commit to a child by Feb of 2013. That allows us some time to fundraise $$. Unfortunately, we lost the $$ that we gave the agency as a deposit for N, but I will not allow that to deter me. There MUST be a reason the Lord will not let this to leave my heart and I WILL follow it.

We will, more than likely, choose to rescue a child through Reece's Rainbow as that is an agency that is near and dear to my heart. I am not looking to save a baby as plenty of people want them. I will be looking at a 2-3 year-old. More than likely, a boy.

So, stay tuned as more details unfold and fundraisers start up. We could use all of the love, prayers, and support that you have!
