Wow! It has been a whirlwind summer for sure! A few updates to share...
We have accepted an offer on our house and if everything goes as planned we will be moving in early September!
Also, God has once again provided just what we needed with some extra income opportunities this summer and we have moved forward with our home study! Between selling our house and working on the home study, we can't even begin to count how many times we have signed or initialed pieces of paper this month!!
So what's next? We still have several documents to gather and complete for our home study file. We are hopeful that we will be settled in a new home well enough to complete our home visits with our social worker, and subsequently finish the home study, by the end of September. From there we will continue preparing our dossier (all of the paperwork that goes to Ukraine) with our adoption agency.
To finish out the summer we have 3 fundraisers coming up! We are still selling our adoption t-shirts for a few more days. This has not been as successful as we had hoped for yet, but we are still hopeful more orders will come in these last few days. Please let us know if you would like one! We will also be collecting water bottles for recycling at a large event one weekend in August. Lastly, our most recently scheduled fundraiser is a partnership with Burgerville on Friday, August 19th from 4:00-8:00 where they will donate 10% of all sales during that time to our adoption expenses. So save the date and be sure to plan a dinner at the Heights Burgerville that evening (7401 E Mill Plain Blvd., the one near Andresen). And if you dine-in, we will be your servers! :)
