Update and a fundraiser

It has been a crazy summer. Lots going on and some things I am not at liberty to discuss. Let's just say God has been busy and in the works of making His Will known. We were able to get our Dossier to China (DTC) on July 2nd right before we made a cross country trip to see our son who is serving this great country. One week later our Dossier was logged into the system. (LID) then we got an email from our agency about a week later saying it is "In Translation". And that my friends is where we sit. We have been LID for 50 days now and we are anxiously waiting for our next step to have our LOA. An LOA is the Letter of Acceptance the last paperwork if you will saying that Ch*na says YES she is your daughter forever. There are a few more steps after that to get her home but that LOA is our YES for sure!!

We are desperate for our daughter to be home! But we are also raising funds to get her here. Because my friends adoption is expensive and it is a hard journey! But we would not trade it for anything! We have also gotten an update while we've been waiting. Our little Ladybug has not grown much. She is about the size of a one year old. She is 28 months old now so she is TINY!! Her little feet are a mere 4 inches long!! Is that tiny or what!!

I thought you might enjoy what we like to call  her "Karate stance" We are crazy smitten about this girl!!

And this one we think is her "I just woke up from a nap face"

She loves her blocks

We cannot wait to get her home!

In the mean time this is what we have been up to. Please join us in bringing her home!Our Tshirt fundraiser is in full swing. I am so excited about this fundraiser. We have put our hand and hearts into it to make it perfect!! This is very special to me in many ways. I do not have much family left so God brings people into my life to fill the gap. We like to call them our OHANA! They are not blodd but they define the word FAMILY perfectly!! I am sure you all have someone in your life that isn't related to but who is more like family than anything. They are your Ohana. Abby is part of our family now, not by blood but by LOVE! I feel that is how God makes OHANA'S, by LOVE! There are a LOT of you out there that we consider our OHANA. I really hope you know who you are. Please join us in this fundraiser, yes to help raise money, but also to bring awareness to how God makes a family, an Ohana, by LOVE!! Excited to share this with you!!
