so close...

We are so close to submitting our dossier we can taste it!  Things are looking good in Honduras in that the adoptions are moving a bit quicker than the agency had originally anticipated.  So exciting.  The idea of holding our baby girl in our arms by Christmas is looking like it will become reality.  Please continue to pray with us for the funds to keep coming in.  Flower sales have been rather slow.  Our total need to complete the adoption is a tad under $15,000.  $6500 of that is needed in order to submit our dossier and keep things progressing.  Our goal is to have that money in hand by the end of the month so that the paperwork can be submitted.  The remaining $8500 is what we will need for travel and expenses in Honduras...including a humanitarian donation that the agency asks for which will go directly to the orphanage to help care for the other children.

We are having a garage sale on June 22nd and 23rd as a fundraiser.  We will begin taking donations the beginning of that week.  Consider what you may be able to, housewares, tools.  We are trying to stay away from clothes unless you have some really nice items that will sell.  We are excited to see how God is going to move mountains for us.
