We Made It!!

We made it!

We have passed our goal of raising $5,000 for baby Joy! We could only do it with your participation and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

God was all over this project and I'm hoping I will have time to tell you some of the stories in the near future.

We actually went over our goal by 15 sets!!! I was praying that if God wanted us to continue with this project for another child, that He would send more people to purchase the blanket sets. So....

I will have the girls choose another child to raise money for. It was so cute...when I told Jillian that we had gone over and that they needed to choose another child, she said, "Mom, wouldn't it be cool if we could do this for five kids who needed help?"

So who knows....maybe we will be able to help five children.

Christmas is coming and people need to buy presents, right? So please spread the word because we are willing to keep making blanket sets!!

So sorry it took me all day to post but my parents arrived tonight and I had to spend the day cleaning and grocery shopping. I wouldn't have wanted my mom to think I was slob. Hee... My mom is the one who taught me to sew and my girls had so much fun showing her their sewing area tonight.

Again....THANK YOU ALL SOOOOO MUCH and please don't stop spreading the word!

That is so awesome! Your girls rock! I have some fabric I would like to donate to them. Where can I mail it to?

My husband and I are just starting our first adoption. We've just been accepted into our agency's Ethiopia program. We are so excited to follow God on this journey.

Blessings,

I love so much that you are doing this!! I will have to look through my material stash and see if there is anything I could send you! I also have a PLETHORA of ribbon I could send too if you need it!

Can I share a secret with you? Because honestly, I can't tell anyone else this, they would all think I'm insane.....

I want Faith. Not faith, as in Christ....I already have TONS of that. No, I want Faith from MSP. Every time Lynsay posts pictures of her, I cry. I think of it every time I see her on the blog. I just want to scoop her up and bring her home with me. My family would LOVE it.

But that is a GOD-sized project that on my own I could NEVER do. We are a paycheck-to-paycheck family.....who just happens to want Faith. :D
