Adoption Update

Wow, It has been too long since i have given an update be a blogger. Hopefully those who read the blog also follow along on our facebook page for updates also as I seem to post more frequent on there https://www.facebook.com/CrazyLeeFarm2 . I have been up to my eyeballs in paperwork, but very excited about the progress! We are getting ready to submit most of our Dossier paperwork to the Chinese Consulate for Authentication. This is a big step in finishing our Dossier up. Along with sending these documents comes a decent size fee ($255). So thank you so much to all who supported our auction we just held as we raised within dollars of this fee! God provides as we need it for sure. We are still waiting out on the revisions to be completed on our homestudy, We are trying to stay patient and know that it will be done in his time and praying all will be done right this time so that we can get the finalized copy notarized and in our hands. Once we have this we will be ready to send it with our I800A paperwork to Immigration for Approval to adopt internationally! This again is a huge step and the wait once sent can be anywhere from 30 to 60 days. Again this step comes with a hefty fee of ($890), which we are very close to having!

Our friends so generously held a fundraiser where she hand makes dresses and in honor of our China song birds she made Kimonos and sold them and gave 100% of her profit to our families adoption fund! She raised $301! What a blessing! This is an amazing Christian family and we feel so blessed that they would do this for our family. Please go check out her work at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dress-Baby-Beautiful/105977396059 you will not be disappointed. the perfect flower girl dresses or outfits for family photos.

This month you can help our family raise funds by shopping for your decorative home fragrance at www.pinkzebrahome.com/bamasprinkle you can use party #7939, but not a requirement. A friend of a friend heard about our adoption and will donating half of her commision to us for the month of April sales. As Spring/summer arrives and we dive into all that cleaning lets get the house smelling delicious at the same time!

The outpour of support from our friends, family and people I have never met just blows me away! God knits us all together to be a part of these orphans stories so that they to will become cherished daughters and sons, orphans no more.
