Yard Sale!

Hello! Things are going very well- Alden has now met all 3 kiddos and we have a court date set for the boys! Court for Salome will hopefully be not too long after- thank you all so much for lifting us up in prayer!


I wanted to post here a yard sale fundraiser some friends are throwing for us! When we got our travel dates we were not fully funded, but have had some very generous and wonderful donations come in from dear friends who are local to us. We are now only about $3,000 short of being fully funded. God has been providing for us in amazing ways- one of those ways has been through this yard sale :) I have been wanting to do one for months but lacked the energy and the resources to do it! Here's the link to the sale information:
 
 
We are so blessed by these amazing friends of ours for taking charge of this for us- even though they are up to their eyeballs in their own paperwork for the son they are adopting! :) This is their blog by the way...I would LOVE to see them fully funded too!  http://journeywiththethurstons.blogspot.com/

If you don't live near enough to come out to the sale which is THIS SATURDAY July 12th then feel free to share the link above with friends! Also if you live farther away but feel led to donate to our adoption costs, our link through Reece's Rainbow is still open (right side of the blog) and all donations through them are tax deductible! Thank you all so much! :)

short update

Thanks everyone for your patience! It's going to be pretty quiet here until we pass court- once we pass court though be prepared to be bombarded with pictures! Visits are going very well and we are so appreciative of your prayers for us- please continue to pray that we will get court dates soon, and that we will have kind judges! Thank you :)

Dates!!!

And just like that we have dates- JUNE 17TH! Wow! I'm glad we were mostly packed already! this next week will be speant in a panic induced state while we get last minute things together and we won't have much to post until we have passed court- which could take several weeks- we appreciate your prayers as we start this crazy journey called parenthood!

THANK YOU to everyone who donated and helped us pay the ransom for our children! Thank you for letting God use you in this way to be a blessing to us- we can never ever thank you enough!

:)
