Updates, Our Scentsy Fundraiser & Prayer Requests!

Hey y'all! We've been busy lately!

This past week, we had our friend Allie come up to Canada to visit! We had an amazing time! It was wonderful to put our adoption fundraising on hold for a little bit & enjoy quality time with our awesome friend. It's always so special to have friends & family come up to visit us during the football season. 

Fundraising Updates: 

Our t-shirt fundraiser ended & was a success! We raised around $1,300 & had 60 people support us by buying a shirt/making a donation. Huge thanks to everyone who took part in this fundraiser! Cary & I are grateful! Can't wait for the shirts to come in the mail! 

Our fundraising is 59% complete!!! 
So far, we have raised $16,602 through our Closet Sale, Etsy Shop Sales, Puzzle & T-Shirt Fundraiser! We are incredibly thankful for every person who has been a part of our fundraising efforts so far!

We have a few ways for people to continue to be involved in our fundraising. Our puzzle fundraiser is still underway, we have 61 puzzle pieces remaining! If you want to donate to our adoption through our puzzle fundraiser, check out this post for more information: Puzzle Fundraiser  We will post updated pictures soon showing our puzzle progress! :) 

Announcing Our Scentsy Fundraiser: 

We are excited about launching this new fundraiser! Our friend Sarah has set up a fundraiser for us through her Scentsy shop. Scentsy is company that sells wickless candles and scents, as well as a bath, body and laundry line! When you order products under "Fundraiser for Baby K" party, we will receive the commission for the sale. This is a cool way to support us and also enjoy something in return! Scentsy products would make great gifts! This fundraiser will last 2 weeks. Check out this link to shop now & support our Scentsy fundraiser: 

Prayer Requests: 

As of this week, we have officially started receiving information about birth mother situations from our consultants. We would love your prayers as we enter into this new stage in our adoption process. This is a very emotional time for us, as we are making big decisions about presenting our profile book to birth mothers. We are praying for God's discernment, peace & wisdom to guide us through this process.   
Please continue to keep Baby K & birth mother in your prayers. Please join us in praying that we would be matched soon & to be able to establish a great relationship with Baby K's birth mom. We are praying for God's protection & love to surround our birth mother & child. Please pray for the health of Baby K & birth mother. We are asking God to give our birth mother courage, strength & hope as she walks through her own journey with adoption.  
We would love continued prayer over our fundraising & finances. We appreciate prayers that God would continue to bring in money for our adoption. Prayers that we would be creative & diligent in our fundraising & prayers we would also be wise & frugal in our spending. 

Thanks so much for following our journey! 

"Wait on the Lord. Be courageous, and he will strengthen your heart. Wait on the Lord!"
~Psalm 27:14
