baby steps forward... :)

It feels like things are starting to get moving now!  All of this is going in the mail today:


I am really excited because it has been hanging over my head for a few weeks now.  We were having trouble coming up with our first payment ($2416.67) so we were waiting to hear if we would qualify to apply for an interest free loan through our agency and the ABBA fund.  We got an email last week that we were approved to apply for this and to go ahead and send our contract in with whatever payment we are able to make at this time.  So here we go!

We are working on the paperwork now for the loan.  We are hoping they will allow us enough to cover our first 3 payments of $2416.67.  That will give us more time to raise that money!  It will have to be paid back before we can travel to Ethiopia.

Speaking of raising money, we will soon be selling T-shirts through Adoption Bug.  They are setting up our website now and it will hopefully be up and running by the end of the week.

I am also working on a Pampered Chef/31/Scentsy party for April or May to raise funds as well.  I will hopefully have a date soon!

We also plan on having a yard sale this spring.  If you have anything you would like to donate to that let me know!  We will be glad to come to your house and get it off your hands!  :)

  1. Hey Becca,
    If you ever want to go in on a fundraiser together and split the proceeds Steven and I would be willing to do that. We looked into making t-shirts as well, but decided not to, but also wanted to do a yard sale. Let me know if you would be interested in doing one big yard sale.
