Jeremiah 29:11Well, we got word yesterday that we have Travel Approval! That means that the green light is now on to go to China. However, since the Chinese New Year is at the end of January, the earliest we could travel is The beginning of Feb, and for work, finances, and managing things at home, I am hoping to travel at the end of February.
We are so grateful to the friends who have contributed to our adoption. I am so in awe at the generosity of people, and the thoughtfulness of those who took the time to donate, and who gave from their hearts and from their love. Know that you are all in our prayers, and we remember you every day in our prayers by name. In addition, we are committed to paying this forward and helping other families to adopt...
We are crunching the numbers for travel fees, and it looks pretty much right now that Sophie may not be able to travel with me. I have not told her, because I have not given up. So, I am working on some more fundraising and will be posting new pictures of bracelets for Valentine's Day. Our bracelets have been getting wonderful reviews, and I am going to set a goal of 50 (!!!) doubles to try to add to our travel costs. In addition, we will be prints of artwork done by our daughter Sarah...they are awesome and will be reasonably priced and a great gift for yourself or anyone else! Stay tuned! Sarah is working on taking pictures of the bracelets and the prints. We should post them in the next day or so.
Thanks again for all of your support and prayers. This is a stressful exhausting process, but God is with us all the time, and we know that.We have to give it to Him, take the control away from us and let Him do his awesome work.
