It's about to get real.

We really gotta get our heads in the game. As iwe need to get the show on the road.  It's time to JUST DO IT.  And someone should really stop me from using cliches to make my point already.  

But, seriously. We've been at this fundraising for just about THREE YEARS, people.  And while it is nice and comforting to raise lots of money ahead of time for this thing called adoption, we've come to the begrudging conclusion that God doesn't always work that way.  After all, the first time around, we had exactly the amount it took to pay the application fee when we started, and not a penny more.  We thought it might be a little more comfortable for us to have a chunk of the money ahead of time for this next adoption.  Why do we assume that our thoughts are His thoughts? 

Don't get me wrong.  It is wonderful to be able to plan ahead, set goals and put money aside for adoption expenses.  And we've done that to the extent that God has enabled us to.  But it's clearly GO time.  In fact, the more obstacles we've encountered, the more obvious it's become. 


As time allows, I'd love to share more about those obstacles and the story God has been writing for the last few years.  But it's, like, the end of November, and our application was accepted at Lifeline over a month ago to get this party started!!!   It's time to put our money where our mouths are. We're upping the ante.  We're in it to win it!





So now that we're truly and officially committed (to adopting), we've rolled up our sleeves (too much?) and freshened up our collection of tutus and other custom made items, added a few new ones and lined up some great deals for the holidays! And we're trusting God to do the rest.  




Because if we're going to talk the talk, we'd better walk the walk.  

Okay, I'm done now. 

p.s.  Does anyone know of a creative writing class?
