"Chip In"

Well, I added the Chip in gadget to our sidebar. That way, any one who would like to help out can do it through paypal. We are brainstorming fundraising ideas for this adoption. We've got a few ideas that are hopefully to come soon. Also, our family has been talking about ways we can cut back and things we can do without so we can put extra money towards bringing our child home. Things like eating out...we shouldn't really be doing as much as we do anyways. Yesterday I talked to the kids about not doing a Christmas tree this year and instead putting that money towards the fund. They agreed. We won't be buying gifts for each other either. Somehow we're all more excited about Christmas this year. I'm handmaking most of the gifts we'll be giving out too.

We are still waiting to find out if Alexie is going to be the child we adopt. I think we are all hoping she is. Luke says he KNOWS she's the one God wants us to adopt...we'll see. :o)

Excited to see this! Will share a few other things with you later. So thrilled for you to be starting this journey of faith, growth, and love!

With you friend. No gifts for our family either. We are writing letters to each other. Using everything to bring Godwin Derrick home and go to Africa. I was sad yesterday when I saw all the FB posts about shopping. It seems I am seeing so much more this year, and more excited than ever!
