Home Study and Fundraising Update

Today we have our 2nd Home Study meeting. This meeting consists of individual interviews about our autobiographies. She said it will only take about an hour and a half each! Wow! Condensing ones life to an hour and a half should be interesting. I guess we will just be giving the cliff notes – ha! But the trick is…..what does the other person do for an hour and a half in the waiting area????? We plan to take the nook, our Bible, MP3 player, and…..maybe the portable DVD player. That should keep us busy.

We have an update on our fundraising. We are very excited to announce that we have booked Taylor Mason, a Christian Comedian and Ventriloquist to come to Dothan on November 18 at 6:00 PM at Harvest Church on Fortner Street. Tickets will go on sale probably the first of September. We are so excited about this benefit show! We are seeking corporate sponsorship to help defray the cost of the show. Yesterday, we were blessed with our first donation to the show! Dothan’s Mayor, Mike Schmitz, gave us our first big donation! We are so grateful!!! Contact us if you would like more information about being a sponsor!

We are also working on another fundraiser – Puzzle Pieces. A friend of ours is going to paint a picture for us to use for the puzzle. She will be including some floral designs from Hungarian embroidery that we found. Once she has completed the painting, we will send it off to be made into a puzzle. We have seen several families doing a fund raiser like this for their adoption. Anyone who makes a donation to the Puzzle Pieces can either sign their name to the back of a piece, or we will sign it for you. Once the puzzle is finished, we will hang it in the kids room to show them all the people that helped bring them home!

We will post updates about these fundraisers as we are able! We thank everyone who has already given to help us bring our children home. If you would like to be a part of this blessings, click the donate button on this page! God bless you!

  2. Thanks for dropping in on my blog. I just read that you are also adopting siblings. What a great (and wild!) ride it has been. It is a lot of work, but if I had it all to do over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. Knowing that they’ll always have each other is very comforting, even though our little one probably won’t remember her time in Ethiopia. Good luck to you as you continue to fund raise. It is all worth it!

  3. Sounds like a great fundraiser! And it’s amazing that you have support from your mayor – wow!! We are also planning on doing a puzzle fundraiser; we bought a puzzle of pysanky (Ukrainian eggs) and we’re just waiting on the right time to start it. I’m curious how yours goes. Good luck!
