Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who showed up this weekend to support us. Whether you donated items, helped price/set up, came to shop or just came to offer support we want to thank you. We also want to say a huge Thank You to my Mother-Leanna and our friends Kate and Brian. You have all donated countless hours these last few months helping us get ready for this and we could never have pulled it off without you. So how did we do???? Awesome!!!! We were blessed with beautiful weather despite the forecast of rain and we surpassed our goals by leaps and bounds. We were able to meet several other families from our area that have adopted or are in the process of adopting. We are so lucky to be living in such a supportive community. There are a couple other fundraisers we are working on setting up and will keep you posted as things progress.
In other news, we signed off on our Home Study on Friday and it should be going to DCFS for approval this week. WHOOOHOOO!!!! That is one huge check mark on the list. We are currently working on getting our documents together and filling out our paperwork for USCIS (Immigration). Planning on having everything ready so we can send it off as soon as we get the approval from DCFS.
