Good News!

Today, we were able to mail the second half of the fee for our home study, $1000, which is the full fee since we have already mailed the $600. What a great feeling!!! All of this is because of the ornaments we have sold.....that all of you have bought! Our count tonight was 399 ornments in 23 days. When we first started this, we almost laughed at the thought of selling more than one hundred ornaments, much less four hundred. Yet today, we are only one ornament shy of this. Also, almost all of our paperwork, other than letters of recommendation, are completed for the home study. Thankfully most of the same forms will be used for Dossier. Once all of the money comes in from the ornaments, we will also be able to pay the $670 United States immigration fee. We are amazed and I just wanted to share today's good news

  1. Awesome news! We got our ornaments the other day...we'll send a check out tomorrow. I'll send you a pic of Ellie showing off her ornaments. Keep us posted with updates!

  2. I have been following your blog for about a week now....I am so happy for you! It is so exciting when God provides in creative ways for all these fees along the way! We are just a small step ahead of you in the process so all those feelings are so fresh for us. Your ornaments were such a great idea! Congratulations on the success and being able to go one more step further!

  3. THank you both for your support!
