What's next? Paperwork, prayer & fund raisers

* I just want to quick update this. We have decided to end our t-shirt fundraiser early. So, we are no longer selling t-shirts.*

So, we are still waiting for our LOA - day 31. We received our RFE  (request for evidence) and a phone call today from the USCIS (United States Citizen & Immigration Services) stating that our I800 paperwork is ready to be approved, they just need our LOA to process it. Please join us in prayer that we get our LOA *this week*. I know God is very capable of doing that.

Matthew 21:22
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

We also received word that our application for LIFESONG will be reviewed this week. Please join us in prayer that we received the matching grant (meaning they will match what we raise up to a certain $ amount) we applied for. This grant would be a huge blessing for us!! Once we receive word from them we will be starting our fund raisers again.

Coming up -
We are going to *try* to have a garage sale. Since we just moved we do not have much to sell. So we will be asking our local friends for any garage sale donations- we are willing to pick up too. The ability to have this garage sale and the success of  it will depend on the donations we receive. We are collecting those donations now. You can email me here if you have any donations or questions.
We will be doing another giveaway as well. We have some pretty great 31 products. And for my local friends, Stacey Clack Photography, has donated an awesome photo package! I will post more about those in the next couple weeks.

Our kids will be getting in on the fund raising as well. They will be setting up a lemonade stand at their Papa & Nana's house. They are hoping to sell lots of lemonade! 

We are still selling our t-shirts and will be through July at least, maybe August. You can find out more about those here or click the fundraising t-shirt link on the side of my blog. Just order the t-shirt(s) of your choice and Adoption Bug will handle the rest. It is simple and quick! *We have ended our t-shirt fundraiser*

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your love, support, and prayers.
