The "Faces of Adoption" Bake Sale Fundraiser

          We are excited to announce the "Faces of Adoption" Bake Sale!!
Liam and his cousin love cupcakes!!!!

Mark your calendar for Sunday May 4th (time TBA) to hear personal stories of friends touched by adoption, learn more about adoption, hear an update on our family's journey a delicious bake sale!!!!! 

(all proceeds will help us defer adoption costs).

We need BAKERS who are willing to donate yumminess!

(Contact Nifer or Christina Reif if you want to help by donating baked goods.)
Thanks to all who have worked hard to help make this happen!

More info to come......

A Thirty-One update: THANK YOU to Chrissie Stulak and all those who shopped the sale. We hope you enjoy your purchases, and we are thankful that you chose to help us in the process!  We were able to raise almost $300 toward our adoption costs! What a great blessing!

A Puzzle update: Our puzzle is together and we've been adding lots of names! THANK YOU for sharing in our joy! We have many pieces left for those of you who still want to be part of it!

and most importantly.....
An Adoption Update: we are still in the paperwork phase of the Home Study. We are nearing the end and have set a goal of turning in all paperwork by April 23rd. At that point we will move on to our three Home Study Inteviews.  
Once those are completed we will make a Family Profile (that will be viewed by prospective birth parents) and be an official "Waiting Family".
Our prayer at this point is that we will be diligent in completing our paperwork and continuing to trust God to provide for us. We need God's guidance as we move into applying for scholarships, grants, and loans to help us with financing.
Thank you to those who continue to ask us how we are doing with the process, and have kept us in prayer! God is doing great things!
