Gotcha Day Video

Sorry I couldn't post here while we were in China, but Blogspot was blocked.

Click here to read about our trip in China.

This will be my last post here as I'll be posting to his sister's blog so I can just make one update instead of two.

So we finally made it home on Friday July 31st and just trying to get back to our daily routine. Things are going well with both the transition and sleeping, with Elijah that is. Camie is like her momma, can't sleep, up at all hours.

I've put together the above video of Gotcha Day as well as his finding spot and pictures of China during our trip.

2 days and counting!!

We are getting ready to leave on a jet plane to the most adorable little boy in the world! Ok, so this momma is a little biased. :)

I was just talking with our agency gal and thanking her for all she has done for us in helping us find our son! When our agency closed last November, she is the reason we stayed with the agency we are with now, because they hired her on. Aisha will always be very special to us.

It has been almost 1 year since we saw our little monkey's face for the very first time and here we are leaving on Saturday to bring him home!

We are truly amazed at God's work in our lives and especially for allowing us to bring home this child, soon to be our son! Now there's one less orphan in the world. Thank you God!!

We are getting closer to our goal!


We did it!!! We met our goal!

Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts and thanking God for providing!

Now this is the way to spend the day at a yard sale

We had another yard sale on Saturday and it was a rather slow day. Not sure why. It might be that we didn't know that our sign at the end of our road was taken until half way through the day. It might have been it was so darn hot that no one was out, going to yard sales. No way to know for sure.

But with that said, we made $46 and since our son sold something of his and he bargained with the guy we are giving him that money. So $14 will be going to his savings to help him buy the materials for the one man boat he wants to build.

$250 left and we will have reached our goal and we leave in 6 days! :)

God continues to amaze us and he has heard ours and everyone's prayers for our funds!!

We received two donations yesterday. One was from someone on one of my Yahoo groups and one was from an anonymous donor.

So with those two donations, there's only $280 left that we need!

Thank you so very much to our two donors, we are humbled and we truly appreciate it!!

We leave in 9 days!!

We are getting closer and closer!! :)

We're down to needing only $1,300 now. That will take care of the in China incidentals.

We will be having a yard sale this weekend to try and help towards that.

Please say a big prayer that we will make it!

And again, thank you all for your help and prayers in bringing Elijah home, we appreciate it so much!!!!

Little Brother, Big Sister

Well I had some time today to put together a couple of shirts for Miss Magoo and Lil' Monkey to wear in China.

I know his isn't a monkey but I thought the Panda was too cute and of course the lady bugs, how could I not use lady bugs? :)

We are blessed!

We had our spaghetti fundraiser dinner this past weekend and not only were we blessed with folks that came to our dinner but we were also blessed beyond measure with donations!

Then on Saturday we went to our friends that had a yard sale and we brought some things to sell, we even had a bake sale. Well they donated their entire funds they raised from the yard sale to us! Again, blessed beyond measure!

So with the wonderful weekend we had we are even closer now to our goal. We still need, $3,700.

I also wanted to say that we still have some items left from our on-line yard sale and I have reduced the prices, so please take a look.

The Koolzees are really cool, no pun intended. :) This really is a great way to stay cool during this time now that it's getting hot! These are hand made by Elijah's papa and we will be taking one for all of us when we go to China.

Thanks for taking a look and happy shopping!
