The latest adoption news!
My dossier is logged in, LID (log in date) is just another step in the process! Next up - translation, then OOT (out of translation), review and the LOA (letter of acceptance)! This process could be weeks or months! It is a waiting game now!
This weekend I'm having a garage sale in Dothan to help fund this adoption! I'm praying that it doesn't rain! I have several large appliances (washer/dryer/stove) for sale and hope the right buyers come along!
I also have 100 Avery's Angels of Hope for sale! I will feature these on the blog after the garage sale! Trust me, they are beautiful! These were donated by a dear friend's mama I cannot thank them enough for blessing me with this wonderful gift!
We are about 15 days away from the Yeti cooler drawing. I know you don't want to miss out on this fabulous cooler. Remember each $10.00 donation receives one entry while each $25.00 donation receives three entries! Wouldn't it be great to have this cooler in time for football season and/or hunting? It is a chance to win while supporting the adoption of a precious teen girl!
We have been busy getting things ready for our new school year. I'm proud of the girls and how hard they work. Our public school system did not meet their individual needs hence we elected to homeschool. This has enabled the girls to learn where they were rather than an established "grade" level! For those wondering, we use Bob Jones distance learning DVD's! Each day the girls have a video lesson for each subject! They love the teachers. The girls have their own DVD players with headphones so that they can all work at the table without being disturbed by each other's videos.
We have slowly been adding to Avery's wardrobe! A winter coat and PJ's are the start! There's so much to get when you are buying for a child that comes with nothing or very little! It's just like providing for a newborn except she's nearly 14!
I have been blessed beyond measure with the addition of the girls! Truly, only those that have walked this road can totally comprehend the blessings I refer to! I would encourage anyone that has a heart for the orphan to not be afraid to step out in faith and adopt. God will lead you to just the right child for your family! Trust him!
Until next time . . . waiting!
