Adoption Update!

Just a quick note to say that we have news!

I opened up my email this morning and the first message into the box was one from our placement agency entitled “Travel Dates!”.

We’re leaving here on the 21st of May, and will be meeting N&N on the 24th.  One short week.  We are so, so excited.  It’s thrown the household into a bit of a tizzy.  We are busy researching plane fares, making packing lists and to-do lists, and smiling.  A lot.

We are awfully close to our placement fees needs.  We are also going to have some travel expenses.  Our van (our only vehicle) broke down a couple of weeks back – $4000 in damage.  That was our travel savings.  All of it for the first trip.  So, we’ve got about three weeks to bridge the gap.

You’ll see a new fundraising thermometer over there in the sidebar, just below the link to our Reece’s Rainbow family sponsorship page.  It shows the whopping grand total goal (including travel for both trips), and our progress so far (which includes RR, savings, and other gifts).  And don’t forget our Spring Fundraiser – for every $25 donated through Reece’s Rainbow, we will send you a phial of Sancta essential oil (Essence of Chrism).
