I think I know his name!

It will be William XinYong Stoiber. I think. I reserve the right to change my mind tho. :-)It sounds odd because I've been calling him Tristan for so long.

My home study is still being processed. :-( I get this fear that after falling in love with Will, something will happen at the last minute and he will get ripped out of my life! Oh my, I couldn't bear that. God's Will be done.

Pampered Chef Fundraiser

An update for my Pampered Chef fundraiser....Our total party numbers are almost $400! Wow! I have never had any kind of "party" that was that large. I highly recommend this one! Woo! Ok, from what I understand, I will receive 15% from the consultant, and then 15% from the company. Altho that seems like so much so whatever we make is good with me.
This week I will get Lib's passport, and if Josh goes, his as well.
PRAYERFULLY, our homestudy will be approved my MAA this week!
Oh please Lord, let us quicken our paperwork.

Parent Training!

After being parents for 22 years, we are required to take 10 hours of parenting training! :-) We finished it up this week, and it is geared toward adopted children, so we did learn some new things, which is nice. Alot of it was applicable to Liberty, who was adopted 5 yrs ago. Also, our homestudy was sent to our agency yesterday afternoon!WOOHOO! It's only for the first 'look-over' so it could still be a couple weeks before I can send off to USCIS for our fingerprinting appointment.

First Real Fundraiser

Last Thursday through today we held a rummage sale. It raised $200 towards our precious boy! Thank you to our friends and family who donated! We live in a very quiet area, Joey and Josh call it "the sticks", so it wasn't busy, but Ryan and Kim said we can haul everything over to their house in August for a weekend rummage and I bet we do even better over there.
Our neighbor, Mr. H., brough fudge over, and sat here and packaged it on Friday (to keep me company! :-) )and we sold it for $1 for 3 pieces. I bought a box of candy Bars from Sam's Club, and sold them for $1 each AND Liberty and I made refridgerator magnets and asked .75 each!

I'm not a very creative person, but I am excited about raising money and working towards a goal. I find it takes my thoughts off this long wait too. :-)

I am also having an online Pampered Chef show. The consultant is giving her commision and instead of receiving product for the hostess gift, I will get another 15%!

Here we come baby!!!!
