Adoption “Fun”draising

When we acted on our call to adopt a little Colombian princess, we had no idea how God would accomplish this great dream in our hearts.  We have been amazed, amused, humbled and blessed!  At the moment 82% of our funds are in, but with all international adoptions, we have one last large lump to raise.  I’ve been inspired to get Bags For Zaza rolling again.  My sister-in-law, Jennie, started it two years ago…. sewing messenger bags, purses and totes to raise money for Zaza to come home.  I believe BFZ raised over $6000!!!  Then we all got busy and overwhelmed with life and it came to a screeching halt.  I’ve been cutting out bags whilst on vacation, so I can sew when we get home!  I’ll keep you posted for upcoming auctions.

We also have been encouraged by friends and neighbors who are jumping on the bandwagon to bring our little girl home.  Our neighborhood group is scheming as well.  Wonderful friends! Please pray that God will unveil where the remainder of the adoption funds are hidden…. while we work like it depends on us, but pray and believe like we know it depends on God.

A Crumb of Info

Yesterday we heard that in two weeks we might hear what our new number is on the ICBF waitlist.  That’s all I have for you.  That’s all they had for me.  We were #15 in January, so here’s hoping we’re a bit closer now.

Fundraising:  We are still selling the piles of donated media from the garage on eBay, but I feel we need some fresh and new $1,000 ideas for fundraising.  Anyone?  Bueller?
