And we are off...

Announcement of our Adoption is out and we have begun our first Fundraiser... $11 for Eli

November is National Adoption Month… in honor of that, we have begun our first fundraiser & am asking those that are able & willing to donate $11 for Eli.
We are trying to raise $600 by the end of Nov to cover the “official application” fee.
Anyone interested in helping can donate via Paypal to: adventure4eli@gmail.com (please specify "gift" to prevent fees), or use the convenient "Chip-In" button on this blog; or you can email us for a mailing address.
We are also pleased to have our Dr appointments for Steve & my physical exam on Tuesday! Praise the Lord we got an apt and our insurance all changed in time.
We are praying about a certain little boy right now. We have a couple other files too. We hope to have answers & our paperwork into CHI next week, and be matched and Lock-in our son. As soon as a decision is made, we will let everyone know. We appreciate all the prayers and encouragement we have already received from the adoption community. Thank you & God bless! 
***Note: If anyone has any questions, our adoption agency is Children's House International www.childrenshouseinternational.com. Our coordinator is Heidi Hawkins heidigoestochina@msn.com.

  1. Steve & Sherry,
    You have started on one of the most rewarding adventures of your life. Your story sounds so much like ours... 6 years and 5 children ago! We wish you the very best on your journey.
