Our initial approval is in!

I got the best mothers day gift today!
I got an email from Shelley saying that our initial family profile has been accepted!!!
The Lord and his perfect timing!
I did not see it coming AT ALL (being Saturday afternoon), and was kind of bumming that we didn't hear back this week.
But - we did! And even better, we were approved!
We have sent in our promise trust fee, our Family Sponsorship Profile and fee, Our Love offering to the ministry, and contacted a social worker to start the Home Study.
We are officially matched with Olive and will have our family sponsorship profile on the Reece's Rainbow site soon!
We are really hoping to have her home by the end of October, and to travel to her country the beginning of October.
That gives us 147 days until we were to travel! That is not long! That would make me about 4 months pregnant if this were a pregnancy!
Something a little scary is that also means we have to raise about $100 a day until we leave!
Whew - that will have to be a God thing!
But, we do have a couple thousand dollars coming in weddings over the summer - so that's a start.
Anyway - YAY, YAY, YAY!



Awesome news!!!!
Happy Mother's Day!!!!

I am so excited to read that you are matched with your little Olive...

Enjoy getting ready for her...'
