8000 to fully funded!!!!

I sent our paperwork off yesterday and have been stalking UPS all day.  It left Kearney, traveled to Omaha, then checked in Kentucky.  It must have boarded a plane at that point because according to the UPS website it will be delivered tomorrow sometime.  I know, I'm working on the control thing but when you work months on end on paperwork you don't want to hand it over to our mail system for it to get lost.  So I have been praying over the mail that our paperwork makes it safely.  Yes, I'm a bit of a control freak, if it was up to me I would hand deliver it myself.  I truly am working on letting go.  So what comes next?  After all of our paperwork is received, it needs to be translated into a different language, and when that is finished and everything is the way it is supposed to be we will get a phone call saying that we are submitted.  Please pray that our paperwork is submitted by March 1st.  If we aren't, there are a few documents that we will need to redo.

We had a huge blessing come in the other day and a family member sent us a check for 1500.00.  When I opened the card I could hardly believe it.  I won't mention names because I don't know if they want us to or not, but we are so thankful to have family love us so much.  It is awesome to say that we now only need 8,000 to be fully funded.  I really can not believe it.  It is amazing that we are getting there.  I am so thankful to all of you who have sent us money.  Asking is so hard for me, I really am learning more about humility.  I have worked hard during the last 6 months, working double shifts  and putting all the extra towards our adoption.  I have had a garage sale and sold stuff,  I have the money from our tax refund towards this adoption.  Needless to say I learned that I can't do this all on my own, and it is you that pray for us, and help us emotionally, and financially get us to the end.  Ultimately it takes us all to get our girls here.   I don't have the words to say but thanks for helping us.

Please continue to share our balloon fundraiser, and in a few days there will we another prize added.
