Last Chance - February 22nd

We are excited that our dossier is going to be submitted to the judge tomorrow (February 14th) which will be Tuesday in Vlad.  While we know we could still be looking at a long wait before heading back over, we also know that we could be pleasantly surprised with a court date very soon.  So we feel motivated (aka stressed) to bring closure on a few things.  We have decided to set an end date to our t-shirt fundraiser for the Ussuriysk baby home. If anyone is interested in ordering a shirt or otherwise making a donation below is the information.  The last date to order is February 22th. 

T-shirt information
We feel compelled to make a donation on our second trip to the Ussuriysk baby home. We will not give them a cash donation, but instead we plan to take additional money with us and then have our facilitator take us shopping for items that are needed for the children once we are back in Vladivostock. We feel this is the best way to ensure that the children are being helped in some way.

After being given very special t-shirts from our friends, Ryan and Sandy True, we got the idea of trying to raise money for the baby home instead of attempting to do it all on our own. Many people have asked how they can help out with our adoption, and we feel that helping us help the children is a great thing!

Greg and I wear our shirts VERY OFTEN! In fact, I was just wearing mine yesterday! I love them! Praying over your dossier review tomorrow, and for the judge to want to get your little guy home by his birthday!

We are going to order shirts. I didn't know you had this going on! I am waiting for my daughter to get home from school and I will find out what color she wants. I thought it was really hard to find good shirts about Russian adoption when we were in the process and this is great. I'll be contacting you soon. We have our 6th month post placement visit tomorrow. Wow how time flies by!
