Adoption Pancake Breakfast and Yard Sale

It's hard to believe a week has flown by since the event and my posting about it has been lacking! Our gratitude is definitely not lacking though!!  We received overwhelmingly generous support and gifts that the yard sale and pancake breakfast alone raised enough to cover a round trip ticket to Taiwan! We are excited to announce that we raised almost $2,300! We are so very thankful to everyone who came out, bought treasures, and ate pancakes with us!! It was such a fun event and something we have never done before. We had yard sale items coming out of everywhere both outside and inside. I was inside helping run the pancake breakfast most of the time but was able to snap a few pictures on my phone from the event.

The Lord is so faithful and provided above what we imagined financially and also through sweet friends who helped us set up and take down the event! With the help of a really special lady, Mrs. Shirl, the yard sale went very smoothly. She went above and beyond to help us with everything! We are so thankful for her, our church family, and friends that came out to help the day of the sale. We would not have been able to do it without their help!

We also found out more exciting news this week!!

We have been waiting on dates to meet our new little guy on Skype. Well, we found out this past Tuesday that our first of three Skype visits will be the first week of August!! We are so excited to be able to 'meet' and talk with him on Skype. I am so, so excited to see his sweet little face 'live' that I can hardly stand it!!

We are still waiting on a court date and will hopefully find out about that within the next few months. 

Will you please pray for our little man as he waits and the transition he will be going through? Thank you so much for following along with us on our journey to Taiwan. We cannot wait to see what The Lord has in store.
