Okay, first of all....oh me oh my! Have you seen our FSP growing by leaps and bounds???? We are only $80 away from $2,000!!!! All donated by family and friends, and some lovely people we don't even know!!!! I wish I could see the names of who donated right away, but it usually takes a little time before my request to see the donors comes through. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of you who have donated! We are so very blessed and appreciate those of you who have felt convicted to give! It's funny how God has used our adoption journeys to make us less prideful and more willing and appreciative of help from others.
Secondly, I will be doing the drawing for the $25 gift card very soon :) That is for those of you who shared the beach trip giveaway on your facebook or blog!
I've been counting down the days until Thursday. I am so thankful Laina's country is ahead of us by several hours because that means we usually don't have to wait all day to get an answer....when we wake up here it is almost the end of their workday there :) We are hoping and praying to get submitted Thursday. Things are uncertain as always in Laina's country and only God knows what the timeline looks like. I thought we passed the class on learning patience and giving up control through Zoya's adoption, but apparently we're repeating those classes all over again....how soon we forget. Or maybe I could look at it as taking a higher level class after learning the basics through Zoya's adoption? Naaahhh, we're pretty much starting all over! ha!
And one more little piece of business....I know many of you who are following our journey, but many of you I don't know! Pretty please, could you introduce yourself either in the comments or by email: spbasile at gmail dot com ?? I'd love to hear who you are and how you found us :)
