We Have... A Court Date!!!

This morning (here... it was evening there), the Minister signed off on our paperwork.

She signed off on everything, and assigned our case to a judge.

The judge has already assigned a court date.

March First.  Eight days from now.

We have an estimated travel date of March 23 (to arrive there on March 24).

Which means....


I am not the bunny-who-lays-eggs type person, but Easter is still my favorite holiday.

It's the day we, as Christians, celebrate OUR adoption into God's family!

I cannot think of a better first holiday to celebrate with my kids!

(I also can't wait to show them to you!  And I can, just as soon as we have the court decree.  So, a couple more weeks.)

Thank you all for helping us to come so far in our process, we are almost at the finish line!!!!!

Tile Update

I just wrapped up a facebook auction, with 58 items totalling $750 in high bids!  Now that donations for the winning bids are coming in, we're back to clearing these tiles!


We FINALLY have our first two winners!!!  Traci and Kacey, you've each won a $10 Amazon gift card, as a thank you for helping us to reach our final fundraising goal!

That means there are eleven prizes left!

Here are the updated Prize Reveal Tiles for Tory and Denny, so get your tiles before all the prizes are gone!

I'm going to be very busy, mailing auction items next week, so I know I'll forget to mention the beautiful necklaces Kristin at 2:12 Designs is selling to benefit our adoption.  For every necklace purchased, you can uncover a tile for YOUR chance at a "thank you" prize!
