You gotta eat!!!

So, as many of you know, we are raising money as fast as possible and all of a sudden (welll, more so than just me sewing and us penny pinching). Why??? Well, because we have a REFERRAL. I am going to share that story soon, but just know, there is a sweet face that we are looking at now that we know each penny will help bring him home. If you haven't heard, it is a BOY! I have posted this week on facebook that we need your help as far as donations and money to bring him home. We are using a different international agency, and they require the BIG money upfront--therefore, no payments. They want it all. My goal this week was to get our application done since this was not our original agency--yep, your gonna love how God worked in this story. He is all over it!!! Luckily, our homestudy was done and ready, but we were still in the paper chase as far as an application. I had the one with our other agency done and turned in well over a month and a half ago. I am a bit obsessed as each day goes by since we missed the quota by seven days with Olivia. That seven days turned into an additional 8 months totaling an 11 month wait. I digress.
Well, you gotta eat, and this coming Tuesday, April 3rd you have a chance to eat out (you here that....your kitchen is closed!) Come join us at Chili's here in Gallatin and bring the flier that is below. If you don't have one, no worries....we will have plenty there. We will be there from 4-9 pm. We hope to see you there. Just think a meal AND you are helping bring home our son! Does it get any better than that????
