Fundraising report!

November 2nd, 2012


Just a few quick updates from our busy family this fine morning!


1.  For anyone who wants to pray about this, we are waiting on God right now to see whether our I-800A application to US Immigrations will be expedited.

Our dossier is just waiting for that Immigrations approval in order to be sent off to Tommy’s country.  And that, my friends, will put us one step closer to the first visit to see him!  We’re praying for a certain letter to be written and for a compassionate Immigrations officer who will help us to move this part of the process along quickly.

At the same time that we feel the freedom to ask God for these things, we are resting fully in the knowledge that He is holding Tommy and our family in the palm of His hand and is working every detail out to perfection.


2.  Last night we received an email from Jennifer Menges, the adoptive mom who is hosting the Avon fundraiser for Tommy’s adoption.  We want to thank everyone who has placed an Avon order through Jennifer’s fundraiser!  

“Just an update so far! Praying for another $300+ in sales to break that $1,000 threshold! Keep promoting!”

3.  Did you take part in the It’s Tommy’s Time auction?

Then you probably already know that you helped to put a whopping $2002.50 into his adoption fund!

What you probably didn’t know was that every time I visited the auction while it was in full swing, I was choked up at the fresh realization that you were all doing this for our Tommy.  Words can’t express how very thankful we are for every one of you, and for the love and support you have been pouring out on our family and our new Tommy-boy!

Thank you and may our faithful God bless you!

    Praying your I800A can be expedited! That is wonderful that the fundraising is going so well-he is loved :)

  2. I think I need to send my auction item to the winner but don’t know where to send it? Will we be hearing soon? Don’t want to make them wait! (((HUGS)))

    Elizabeth, I’m assuming that means they haven’t paid yet, so Crystal hasn’t received their full name and address. I have a soap set here also waiting to be sent. :)
