Final Countdown!

In less than one week we will be traveling to China for our new daughter! The girls are excited and can't wait to meet their new sister. We are continuing to fundraise to cover travel expenses. If anyone wants a bracelet, Yankee Candle Car Jar or need a baby / lap blanket let me know. I will ship everything prior to leaving.

Less Than 2 Weeks

We are traveling in less than 2 weeks! The girls are getting excited to have their new sister come home. Last weekend we had our last yardsale before travel. We made $165.00 so at least we made some money towards our in-country fees. We are still short some funds but I will keep selling items locally and on FB. Keep a lookout for items available and everything will be shipped prior to us traveling. Thanks!

Still Fundraising!

Three weeks from today we will be in China! Time is flying by. We are still fundraising for the last remaining in-country cost. Tomorrow, we are having a large yard sale, so we hope to raise funds while cleaning out the house.

Three Weeks Before Travel

We are counting down the days. Approximately 3 weeks before we leave to bring Elana home. We are still trying to raise funds. So far, we have bought our international plane tickets (on credit card), was approved for a loan to help cover most of the in-country fees, but we are still short $2500 for the orphanage donation. We still have many items listed for sale: movie posters, blankets, Yankee Candle, toys and Bath & Body Works to name a few. This weekend we are having a yard sale. But, none of this is stopping us. To see the pictures of our new daughter and to know she is coming home soon is all worth it. Please visit our FaceBook page for items to buy.

Last Online Fundraiser!

We are having our last online fundraising event before we get Elana. We have many items listed for auction; toys, jewelry, Yankee Candle, movie posters, kids makeup sets and more. Visit our link to see if there are any items you may want for yourself or a gift for someone. All items will be mailed before the end of the school year if you are looking for teacher gifts. The auction will go until May 9.

Countdown has begun!

We leave in 35 days to bring our new daughter home! Bought plane tickets yesterday and applying for visas today. We are so short on funds, it is not even funny. However, I know when they place Elana in our arms, every piece of the process is worth it. If I have loans and credit card bills for the request of my life, I will never regret the decision to bring our daughter home.

We are planning another yard sale on May 15 & 16 and I am trying to put together another auction before we leave. Most of the items we made and the other items we bought on clearance. If we can make a few dollars on each item, it is at least something.
