From Saturday morning until this afternoon we have been blessed over and over and over again and I am just still in awe of it all!
Okay I've said my peace and now I have some exciting news to share. Saturday morning I had 2 wonderful women over for breakfast and a planning meeting for our next BIG fundraiser. Amy is adopting a 13 year old boy named Jimmy from Haiti and Christy is getting ready to submit her application to adopt from Ethiopia. We all live in Ada and are so excited more than anything to do something to get the word out about what we are doing and what the needs are that are out there in general for children in this world. Soooo....we are having a western themed benefit night complete with a dinner, door prizes, entertainment, and silent auction. Because we are here in good ole Oklahoma we thought we do something we know our town loves, BBQ! So we will be selling tickets and giving more details VERY soon but mark you calendars, Saturday, April 30th 5:00-8:00pm for our Lil' Buckaroo BBQ adoption benefit to Bring Our Lil' Buckaroos Home!
I also want to help spread the word for our friends The Linck, The Ellis, and The Habuda families as they are having their adoption fundraiser dinner on April 16th in Moore, OK and tickets can be bought here.
By Saturday afternoon we got this is the mail..... Our much awaited
As of Friday evening we were still just over $2,000 short of the $5,000 needed to submit our dossier and by this afternoon we were blessed so greatly by a couple wonderful friends of ours and now we just have $950 left to come up with!!!! All I can say is there have been many tears of joy and thanking God for all he is doing in our lives. I said in my last post all about our history of moving to Oklahoma and how amazing this last year and a half has been, simply life changing! But it is just never ending, we seem to keep having more and more real, loving, caring, down to earth, God loving, servant hearted (is that even a word?)...people put in our lives that it is almost overwhelming! Our blessings this weekend both came from friends who we love and respect so much and the meaning behind each donation was just heart warming and very humbling! I don't want to say too much about the details but have to say it will be going down in our journal of this journey. Thank you SO so SO much, there are not even words to say to express our gratitude!
