So, next week we'll take another day to ask for more donations from local business. I'm excited to see what God will do. If you're interested in donating anything for our silent auction, post a comment and let me know. It can be a physical item or your time or talent, such as music lessons, artwork, babysitting, etc.
God bless you all, and thanks for praying and supporting us in this. Yay God!!!

As far as the home inspection goes, the house passed. The only thing we need to do before getting our baby is put at least one ladder outside an upstairs window in order to escape in case there's a fire. No problem there. That's actually something we've kept telling ourselves we need to do, so now we can't procrastinate any longer. She took with her the application we filled out for the home study and will be getting back to us about the next time we can meet. We need to meet two more times. She also took a deposit of $2000 today and will take another $2000 after the home study is complete. We're doing an Adoption Banquet with the Woodden's (our friends who are also adopting) on Sunday, March 13 at 5:30pm @ Camp Robber (so mark your calenders Montrosians), so hopefully that will help make up for some of the costs of the adoption. We knew this wouldn't be cheap, but now that this first deposit has been paid, it makes the process even more exciting because it solidifies in our hearts and minds that we're going for this totally and completely. We know God has been in this since the beginning and we're excited to see His favor and blessing in all of it. Thanks for all your support and continued prayers.

Our home study is this Friday and we have filled out mounds of paperwork for it. We've had our fingerprints and mailed off for our background checks.
We are planning our first fundraiser with great friends Adam & Jodi Woodden who are also adopting with the same consultants we are using. So mark you calendar for March 13, 5:30pm we will have a full course banquet to help raise some of our adoption costs. We are pursuing a domestic adoption and the costs can range from $9,000 to near $18,000. We are trusting the Lord will provide others to join with us in 'caring for the orphan' by giving towards these costs.
