We Have Been MATCHED!!!

We have been matched and our little boy is due on July 12th in Michigan! We got the call a few weeks ago and had to work through a bunch of things but things are on track now and we are super excited! We can't wait! It is all happening very fast, but we are excited to bring the little guy home! Thank you for all your prayers and support through our journey thus far. Please continue to pray that the rest goes smoothly. Please pray for our little boy as well as his birth mother and pray all the legal stuff goes well.

We have another SCENTSY FUNDRAISER! Nicole Uhrin, a local Colorado Springs Scentsy Consultant, offered to do another Scentsy fundraiser for us! You can order from our online fundraiser & we will also be having a party at my parents house here in CO on June 3rd, so for all of you who missed out on the party because you live in CO now is your chance to attend a Scentsy Party Fundraiser for our adoption! To order online use the link, below find Scham & CJ's Adoption Party under "Open Parties" on the homepage & click "Buy from Party" next to the name. Scentsy is a safer alternative to candles; no wick, no flame, no lead, non-toxic, & safe around children and pets! I really think you will love it! 

Below is an image of the invite! If you haven't received the invite in your email and would like to please let me know! Hope to see you all on Friday, June 3rd!

As most of you know CJ headed out again on Saturday morning. Just wanted to let everyone know that he arrived safely and will be there till August! He is going to have one HOT summer! Today he said it was over 100 degrees and extremely humid and it is only May! So it WILL get hotter! Hopefully he won't have heat stroke or something! I am sure he will be at the pool every day! :)

Garage Sale in Colorado Springs!!!

Since the Oak Harbor garage sale was such a success we decided it would be a good idea to have another one in Colorado Springs! We are planning on having it the first weekend of June. I know many people in CO were jealous of our sale in WA so, now is your chance to support us. Our families have stuff for the sale and we will also be accepting donations for the sale. We all know what it is like to have a pile of stuff that you have been meaning to take to the thrift store! Well now you can just bring it to us and we will sell it at the garage sale.

Everyone in the Colorado Springs area, get together all your donations and anything in the house you need to just get rid of and donate it to our Garage Sale!!! So go now and clean out your closets, garages, and bedrooms and donate all your unwanted things to us!

Mark your calendars now for the first weekend of June! We will have flyers soon!
