"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

Setbacks and slowdowns

We've had a couple setbacks with our paperwork... .a couple dates were wrong and we had to redo a few documents before the Embassy in Chicago would accept them. So that means an additional week waiting for our dossier to return from the Embassy, pushing us a week back from submitting our dossier (DTC), and with our timeline cutting it close to Chinese New Year anyway, it looks like we won't travel until after Chinese New Year. Things are never going to go according to our timeline, but it still hurts a bit when you see your timeline smashed to pieces. When all you want is to get to your kid, it makes it even harder. We have a couple things going on to fundraise.... since we weren't planning on adopting, we need all the help we can get with funding! These bracelets are made by Mud Love, and they are amazing! Each bracelet sold provides water for a person in Africa! And they are custom made, so you can't get them on their website. And they help bring our sweet girl home! To purchase one, please email me at justplainbeckyw@yahoo.com
We also have a site set up for donations. It is tax deductible, so if you donate you will get a receipt via email that you can use on your taxes. Plus if you click the link you'll get to see a picture of our baby girl! http://adoptionbridge.org/families/waiting-for-the-girl-in-china And last, we have these GREAT t-shirts! Seek justice... love mercy... walk humbly. With our God. Proceeds benefit our adoption. **The shirt campaign has ended**
