First: Our homestudy is being written as we speak! We received an email from our Social Worker last week that she has blocked out time Friday, Monday & Tuesday to work on it and is hoping to have it to us by Tuesday afternoon. We’ll then forward it to our agency so they can look it over & make any corrections. Hoping to have a final copy by Friday or next Monday. Then it’s off to USCIS.
That’s the good news!
Unfortunately, along with the homestudy being done & sent to USCIS, comes a big bill :( Around $6600! (I know the image below says $4590, but I forgot to add in the $1800 in post-placement fees that have to be prepaid)
So we’re down to the wire. We are still trying to raise the funds for fees, and Wednesday we will draw for the kindle fire! (Honestly…we still need to sell 5 tickets to even PAY for the Kindle!)
If you’ve been busy & haven’t gotten a chance to enter, now’s your chance. If you’re looking for a good Mother’s Day or birthday gift (or just because gift), now’s your chance. If you just feel like supporting adoption, now’s your chance. Whatever your reason…now’s your chance :)
Check out the original post here or click on the picture above. This is a really, really nice tablet. I have the original Fire and LOVE it! It’s light, easy to carry, fun to search the web and I get free books to download all the time! Watch movies, entertain your kids with apps…you name it!
This process has been fast and furious, with greater fees, due to the newest Hague regulations. I will say time and again that God has never failed us! Never, ever! And He never will. We don't even know the spectacular things He has planned to bring our son home, but we know He's got this!
OH…and if you’re doing any Mother’s Day shopping on Amazon, don’t forget you can click the picture on our sidebar and a small percentage of your order will be deposited into our fundraising account.
A few things to note:
1) This will ONLY work if you click through the link in the sidebar.
2) It will not work on anything that is saved in your cart. If you wish to help us, please deleted the item from your cart, close the window, click the link on the sidebar & readd the item. I KNOW that’s a pain, but we’d really appreciate you doing that for us.
3) It will not work if you add items to your cart, then leave the page for whatever reason. You have to click through the link in the sidebar, add your items to the cart & check out…all in the same session.
Thank you to each & every one of you that have supported our journey thus far. We can not thank you enough!
