i’m selling prints to raise money for our adoption

September 22, 2008

our upcoming adoption is quickly approaching…next thursday to be exact. i thought we would have the necessary funds by now, but we don’t. we’ve tried not to abuse this blog with requests to help with this adoption. God has graciously provided almost all of the money via people like yourselves. However, we are still about 1/3 short of the money needed. That comes out to be about $4,000.00. I have picked out 12 of my favorite photos in order to try and sell them to help raise the remainder of this money. These prints will be 8×10, and they will cost $35.00. This price includes shipping. If i can sell 140 prints…we’d have the rest of the money!

Thank you guys for your prayers & support throughout this entire process. We are on the home stretch, and could not be more excited. If you can’t afford a print, and still want to help us out…write a post about these prints for sell & the reason i’m selling them & link back to this post…that’d be awesome help! You guys are the best!

please email me if you have trouble ordering this prints, or if you’d like a print large than 8×10


psych testing, missing paperwork, health insurance, & t-shirts

March 31, 2008

we are one more step closer. we took our psych evaluation test this past friday, and we have another meeting with the psychiatrist to see if we’re sane. i’m a little worried. haha…those test always freak me out. it makes you realize how your brain works, and how messed up you really are. i know everything will turn out fine…those test just make me nervous.

we sent in our paperwork, and then realized they were missing a few pieces. i’ve scanned and emailed them today. i’m still waiting on 2007 tax returns, and we’ll be done with the paperwork. i also need to talk to our insurance company about getting coverage for august. any of you adoptive parents have advice for talking to them? what questions i need to ask? what kind of coverage?

we recently ordered some more 2xl adopting august shirts. we had run out of them, but now they’re back in stock. we have every size available now.  if you’d like a shirt please let us know. the links above will order the shirts through paypal. every little bit helps. we’re a little less than halfway on the funds that we need. so that’s exciting. i’m also still doing photography for our adoption. if you or someone you know needs photos please email me & let me know. it’s been an awesome way for us to make money for this adoption.

thanks for all of the prayers & support.

i’m also excited about the fact that i am able to use my photography to raise money for this adoption. it’s been a lot of fun taking pictures of these wonderful families. if you would still like get some pictures done…you can contact me here.
