We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Traveling Yet?!

No, not yet.  New paperwork requirements were passed in Russia.  So we need to do the new paperwork before we can be submitted for a court date.  Sooooooooooo sad :(.


We have all the money we need to bring home the girls!!!!!!!!!!!  MIRACLES DO HAPPEN! 

Thank you so to all those that helped!!

We are assuming the 3rd trip being waived, if not we will need to pay for the 3rd trip. Please pray that the 3rd trip is waived so we can be DONE FUNDRAISING and our girls can COME HOME!

Look at that beautiful thermometer!!

Another Miracle!

Remember how Alisa is this VERY FIRST EVER child with special needs over the age of 4 to be adopted from her region (domestically or internationally)??  There are now TWO saved children!  A sweet mommy traveled to meet her new 5 year old daughter this week.  She is ADORABLE and in the same orphanage as Alisa!!  Brought tears to my eyes.  I wish we could FLOOD this institution with adoptive families.  Why don't we start by finding Katie's family??  She is a FABULOUS little girl.  She is sweet, great with other children, high functioning, great fine and gross motor skills, and so much more GORGEOUS then her pic on RR shows!  She is also my daughter's best friend.

Only $500!!

We are only $500 from being full funded (if our third trip gets waived)!!  Can you believe that we can come this far??  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who has helped.  No matter how big or small, it all adds up!

We have approximately one month to raise the rest.  Considering how far we have come, TOTALLY possible! 

God is so wonderful!
