Well we sent out our letters and now we are waiting to see if anyone feels the calling to send us $10. I understand though how hard the times are and I truly have faith in God that He has not lead us here to let us fall. He is teaching me patience and faith, I just need to remember that. Some days are easier then others to be strong.
We did receive two donations to date. One came right after the letter was sent, another just a couple days ago, both had perfect timing! We are going to start some of our fundraising now. We are doing a couple garage sales; one with the group and one with our neighborhood. We are also looking at items to sell and other things we can do to raise the money.
I can't wait until we are at the point of getting our referrals. I think of our babies in Ethiopia all the time and I hope they know how much they are loved and how much we want them, and yet, we haven't even met them yet. So until then, stay safe babies and know that we are coming and you will be forever home soon!
