Best news we've had in WEEKS!!!! Lots of families have been praying and we have ALL been blogging about it. The country we are adopting from decided to cease all adoptions and close down for 3 months starting July 11th. Well, we got news TODAY that they are staying open for children who are on the Special Needs list (as defined by their government). THIS MEANS NO SHUT DOWN FOR STERLING!!!! Praise God!!! We are so excited....thanks to EVERYONE who has been praying for our process!!!
Now the panic mode sets in a little. We had really slowed down on paperwork because of the shut down. There was a chance we would have to redo ALL of our documents after they reopened so a lot of us stopped working or slowed down. BIG MISTAKE! Now we are back on and trying to work in double time! Lots to do, tons of paperwork to have approved and apostilled. And we MUST get our CSP and our USCIS (immigration) paperwork out ASAP!!!!
This also means we need to fundraise FAST. We are a little over 2/3s of the way to being fully funded! We thank God for that too! These are the fundraisers we are working currently. Please help if you can!!!
1) Personalized Necklaces (pictures on this blog) $10-$12
2) Personalized Disney T-Shirts for Birthdays and Trips Coming Soon
3) Custom built cabinets donated by Lowes for us (a $750 set-up) to be silent auctioned or raffled. Still working on this
4) A garage sale is in the works....
PLEASE SHARE OUR BLOG! WE NEED ALL THE HELP AND PRAYERS WE CAN GET!!! I JUST WANTED TO SHARE SOME AWESOME NEWS!!!!!! HOORAY!!!
