Held the final garage sale this weekend in Birmingham and raised another $1000, making a grand total of $3800! We are so thankful for all of our friends and family who have supported us through this fundraising effort--especially our parents who each organized a garage sale, which is no small feat! They organized, collected, and priced items, advertised, and helped during the sales and spend lots of time and energy into it all! We've also had several friends (and even some strangers) who have TOO generously donated money to our fund! We are so blessed to have you in our lives! We have to say, though, that if we never have another garage sale in our lives, it will be too soon! We are garage saled out! Although, the outcome was well worth the hard work!
Update on where we are in the process...still not officially approved. Emailed the social worker two Wednesdays ago and she said that it is in the team review process, which is where all the other social workers review the home study, and they will vote to approve it once all have reviewed it. I will be emailing the social worker again tomorrow for yet another update! We'll keep you posted.
