Okay, where to start?!.... You know when you're just so overwhelmed with excitement & gratitude that you can barely get your thoughts together? That's me right now. My thoughts are jumping all over the place with what I want to say and I'm unsure of where to begin.
I guess a good place to start is with THANK YOU! The generosity, support, prayers, and encouragement we have received surrounding this adoption process from the beginning has truly been amazing! With the Adoption Auction closed now (besides the farmhouse in East Tenn. being open until tomorrow evening), both Joshua and I are able to take a step back and just say, "Wow!". We are humbled by the generosity of friends and family who both donated their services/items and those who placed bids! As of now, if the bid on the farmhouse stays at $600, the auction will have raised $1,455 to go towards our adoption savings! Is that not just crazy exciting?! This means that in the past two months God has provided a total of $5,014!!!! Yes, this makes my eyes tear up in amazement!
She wants our friends and family to be a part of this t-shirt fundraiser and so I'm getting the word out! If you are interested in buying a shirt, the cost is $20. She needs all orders received by July 15th so that we she can go ahead and place the order with the t-shirt company. If you live locally (the North Dallas area), once the shirts are received she is planning on setting up a day to be at McKinney High School for everyone to swing by and pick up your order. If you don't live locally and you would like one, I'll pick it up for you and gladly mail it your way! Wouldn't it be awesome if her creative way of helping us raise money totally blew her socks off too?! So let's help her, help us! (o; If you are interested, please be in touch with Kalisha by email at
