God's Toolbox

Know what that is dear friends???? That is a big, mac-daddy toolbox.

That was donated by our awesome friends Patrick and Tawnya!

That was just sold on Craigslist for $1800!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, guys!!!!

Funny that a toolbox would be used as a tool to help fund Olivia's adoption!

Know what else dear friends???? We made $640 on our garage sale last weekend!!!
We had great friends let us use their office space on a main road, great family donate items, great (brand spanking new) neighbors who let us empty out their garage and it was a great success.

The thermometer on the side has, all-along, been tracking the amount in our adoption savings account plus the amount we should get back in taxes. But due to a mistype with our taxes, our taxes have been delayed at least a month - OF COURSE. Cause why would I expect to take any step in this adoption without stumping my toe?!?

So the amount at the side you see is what we currently have in our account. The good news is that America World will consider letting us delay our fee to them if our i71h comes in and our dossier is finished before our taxes are back. The other good news is that any 'extra' money above and beyond the $7700 to submit our dossier will go on to the next step: $5450 to accept our little girl's referral (giving the ok that 'yes' we will parent that child)! Just wondering how many more of my toes will be stumped by that time!
