100% Egyption Cotton Sheets!!!!

As many of you know we will be bring our little girl home sometime around August 11, 2012.  We are completely overjoyed! We have been longing for this day for several years now!! With all of this excitement comes the reality that we have a lot more fundraising to do.  You guys have all been awesome with our past fundraisers, so I have been trying to come up with one that not many people do and is something that everyone would really enjoy!!!! It hit me the other day as my mother-in-law and I were shopping for our favorite bed sheets that it would be perfect for us to do. So we contacted the person who we bought them from asking him to work with us on a fundraiser and he said YES. So, here it is people, these sheets are AWESOME!!! They are 100% Egyption Cotton, deep pocket sheets (18"), and they are super soft. They come in a wide variety of colors and you can get them in twin, full, queen, king, and california king. If interested please email your email address and name to and I will email more information if needed. THE BEST PART IS THAT THEY ARE ONLY $35.00. The sheets need to be paid for before I am able to order them. The same sheets retail at $100.00 at Bed Bath and Beyond and other retail stores. We have decided to do this fundraiser until August. It is a great way to help us and yourself!

HUGE Update

A while back we decided to leave the DRC Program and pursue Domestic adoption as a result of current time lines and many other things that we are not able to discuss at this time. After being in the Domestic program we are more than happy to announce that we have been matched with a mom and will be adding a BABY GIRL to our family around August 11, 2012. We are thrilled with this amazing blessing that God is working out in our lives. Through the past several years Domestic Adoption is not something that we ever considered, so I find it very funny how God kept delaying our process and nudging our hearts to lead us to one specific mom.  Although we are overflowing with JOY, we are freaking out about finances. Our African adoption after referral would take about 12 months for pick. We really were going to wait to start fundraising then, but now that is defiantly not the case. Domestic adoption has turned out to be a lot more expensive that we anticipated and now we are in crunch time. We do know that this is the perfect little girl for our family so we trust and pray that God will meet our financial needs and help to reduce our stress. Our final payment is due on July 10, 2012! BOLD PRAYER PLEASE!

This one will be for people in the Louisville or Cincinnati or French Lick Area as I'm not sure how I would be able to ship this. This is a large wreath and obviously we will customize the letter for the winner. The raffle will last until May 19, 2012.

The tickets for the raffle will be $5.00 per ticket.
