Update & Fundraiser Reminders!

We are now back home in WA and trying to get back into the swing of things. We are very disappointed about the failed adoption, but there isn't anything we can do about it, so we are moving on. We are hoping we won't have to wait too long for our next adoption call. Thank you for all your prayers and support during this time!

The hardest part about this is we did loose some money with this situation. The money we paid to the attorney and social worker in Michigan is no refundable along with a few other things we paid. The fees we paid to the agency will just transfer over which is good, but we are down a few thousand dollars now. We were getting so close to our goal, and now we need to raise more. We would like to remind you of our current fundraisers.

Just Love Coffee - Click here for more info - with every bag you buy $5 goes to our adoption fund

Buy things you need Everyday - Click here for more info and please take a look at all the items you can buy on their website and email Ashlea with questions starbright141@hotmail.com

Donate - Remember you can always donate to our adoption with the donate button on the right hand side or by mailing a check (email for our address)

Thank you all for helping us make our dreams of becoming parents a reality!!!

So the due date is tomorrow!!! I know in pregnancy it doesn't necessarily mean much, but I can't believe it is almost here. But I am very surprised that we have not left for Michigan yet. I really thought we would have headed out by now, but we are still just waiting for the call! Please pray we will get a call soon and that the entire process goes smoothly out there in Michigan! We will be parents very soon!!!

Any Day Now!!!

We are a little more than a week from the due date now. So really we could get the call any day now. We have begun to look at last minute plane tickets, hotels, and car rentals to try and get prepared! Last minute tickets are sooooo expensive!!! We are trying really hard to come up with the last bit of money we need. Our travel expenses will be about $3000 give or take a little, from what we have been researching. Please pray we will be able to come up with the money soon. Thank you.

You can still donate to our donation through the link on the right side of the page.
Also we will be posting a new fundraiser later today to help with the expenses.


Thank you so much to all of you who ordered Scentsy from Nicole durinig the month of June! She was very generous and gave 25% of all the sales during the month of June to our adoption fund! We added an additional $380 to the fund. We are getting close to our goal, but still have a little bit to go. Thank you all so much!!! And THANK YOU NICOLE!!!
