Fundraising time! Hello All- so we have begun the start of our fundraising journey. I have added a paypal link to this blog for those of you who wish to help my making a donation towards our adoption. Any little bit helps. Also, if anyone has any great ideas for fundraising let me know, we are open to it. Summer is almost done and Fall is almost here, my favorite time of the year! Not too much else is new, we celebrated Jim's 31st Bday in Chicago. Enjoyed time with family and friends. School starts back up for Jim in September and youth group starts next week.

We finally recieved our I-171H (approval from US side for adopting a sibling group of 3-4)! Yay, Praise God all of our paperwork is now on its way to Missouri (where our agency is based). So, what does this mean? We do some more waiting. Our agency will then send all of our documents to Colombia by the end of this week. Colombia will review the paperwork and Lord willing approve us for a sibling group. Still don't know the time frame at this point. It may take several months for Colombia to review our case and approve us. Then maybe another couple of months for them to match us with a group. We hope by next spring we will be with our kids. Prayer for finances, paperwork approval on Colombia's side, and to be matched with our children.
