Favorite Foto Friday and Fingerprints Too

Well my second set of fingerprints are on their way to the FBI. I was smart this time and sent them certified mail needing a signature. Still no news in the adoption. We have been waiting almost 3 weeks. Hopefully within the next 3 weeks we will get picked, but we know no matter what it will happen in the Lord's perfect timing!!!
There is another big game this weekend so GO BIG Blue, beat those gators!!!!

I am running out of ideas!!! We have applied for 1 grant but have still not heard, and are currently applying for another one. It is hard for us because the same people are always helping us, and we need to branch out so that it is not a burden on them. If any of you reading this would like to donate to our adoption fund please leave a comment and I will get back to you. Also, if you have any ideas please throw them our way. Tim is working constantly and it is hard for me to do fundraisers by myself with a 2 year old. I wanted to do a movie/dinner night at our church, but I am not sure if it would go over well due to people being so busy with school functions. I am open to any ideas!!! Thanks so much and have a great and blessed day!!!!

Yard Sale and a HUGE WIN!!!

I am wore out so sorry no pics, but I will post some tomorrow or Monday!!! We ended up with $167 today which wasn't my goal, but anything is good. It was probably not the greatest day for a yard sale as the Cats were playing at home and Keeneland is going. But we had great weather and Kaleb had a blast being outside all day. He took like a 3 hour nap.

On another note the CATS beat #1 LSU!!!!! WOO HOO!!!! We haven't beaten a #1 team since like 1951. It has been a great day in the Blue Grass. Have a great night!!!

Yard Sale #3

Well tomorrow we are having another yard sale. I have been working like crazy to get things ready. We are having it at another friend's house b/c she has a good location for yard sales. Tim is out of town so I am a single mom yet again. Luckily I will have some friends to help out with Kaleb. Well I will post some pix tomorrow night. Have a great Friday and Go Big Blue!!! Beat LSU!!!!

More Fingerprinting!!!

Well we got our fingerprints done August 7, and the agency emailed today that they had received Tim's clearance but not mine. I called IIS who scans the prints and got transferred like 5 times or more. Finally I talk to Scott who says there is no record of my prints and that they will have to be redone. I told him that they were sent together so they got there together. Nonetheless some goof ball probably tossed them and now I have to get them redone. This is nothing major but it is so irritating to me. I called them back and told them that they cashed our check for 2 prints and that I was not going to send more money. The girl, Toni, was super nice and said to send a letter stating what I discussed with Scott. Luckily this doesn't effect birth mothers being able to look at us and/or choose us.

This is what happens when you don't have a nap. I kept noticing that Kaleb had this dazed look and then all of a sudden he fell over.
These pics are reasons why you don't need to buy many toys!!! Have a great weekend!!!

I talked to our agency and they have received a copy of our homestudy. Now they have everything. I talked with a lady from our agency on Monday and she said the hispanic adoptions are moving very quickly. Basically we can be picked anytime. My only concern is that we will be picked by more than one b/m and then we will have to choose. How do you choose a b/m??? We will just continue to pray that the Lord will send us who He has chosen for us.

We are pretty much done with Kaleb's big boy room except for the bed skirt and valance which are being made by a friend. I am now filling up the drawers in the nursery with baby clothes that we have gotten from yardsales. The top drawer is gender friendly, the middle is filled with onesies for both, and the bottom is strictly for the girls. We are getting prepared as anything can happen anyday.

Please lift up Krystal, Michael, Gerson, and Elviz in prayer as the ortega law was passed today, and this could majorly affect their progress with the adoption.
