Yard Sale in May and Homestudy Process

Adoption Fundraising Yard Sale:

We will be having an adoption fundraiser yard sale at our home in St. Paul May 17 and 18. (still figuring out the exact times) If you or others have any gently used items of all kinds (furniture, jewelry, shoes, electronics, toys, appliances, clothing, books, home decor, baby items, etc) we'd gladly take them for our sale.  And if any of you have a heart for helping sort, price, or volunteer the day of, I'd gladly say yes. I'm praying this sale is an opportunity to share with others about our adoption, raise some funds, and also share God's heart for adoption too. I've been thinking about this a lot and it is truly an amazing, beautiful thing. (I'll have a separate post on this at some point) 

Pray for lots of donations, lots of people to come to our sale, great weather, and practical needs (volunteers, tables, signs, plastic and brown paper bags, and possible bake sale) would all come together :) 


We are deep in the home study process. We've had our social worker visit and take a look at our home and we've been doing a lot of paperwork (answering biographical questions about everything related to us and our life), fingerprints, doctor appointments and medical records, psychological report, financial statements, training videos (related to brain development, attachment, and parenting in adoption), etc and more. We are busy and taking it one "yes" and one paperwork at a time. 

This journey is a step of faith and trust for sure, especially regarding the huge financial costs, pray with us that God would provide for all our needs.
