So many of you continue to ask about where we stand with getting our sweet Bella home. As most of you know, we should have been to India and back already with our daughter. BUT...obviously that has not happened. There are some changes in India's adoption process and the changes are causing delays and backlogs in paper work. Well our paperwork is caught right in the middle of it all. We have NO idea at this point when our paperwork will be approved. So, we continue to wait. Honestly, I am at complete peace with this. God has just covered me in peace while we wait and I'm trusting in His sovereignty 100%. He knows what He is doing and when our little girl needs to be home for her benefit and ours. He LOVES her SO! I know He is holding her in complete peace as well. I just praise Him for His loving kindness.
In the mean time....we still continue to try and raise the remaining funds needed to bring our darling home. Still about $4,500 left to raise. We still have some adopted shirts left if you want one. But let me tell you about an exciting event coming this Saturday August 20th!! This is going to be fun! Charming Charlies in Bham is helping us raise money for Bella! Here are the details.
