He is Ours!

On the 4th of July a Bulgarian judge declared "Abraham" legally to be our son, Alexander Jude Bailey!  And tomorrow concludes the 7 day waiting period, finalizing the adoption.  Next, the judge will sign the court decree (hopefully some time next week), and then Alexander's new birth certificate with his new name can be obtained while the court decree is translated.  And then, we will find out when Sean will be going back to Bulgaria to pick him up and bring him home FOREVER!

Last week we were blessed and amazed to learn that we were awarded a $2500 grant from the Gift of Adoption Fund.  This will cover the vast majority of the cost of the plane tickets for Sean and Alexander!  Awesome!  Now we are only $800 away from being able to cover all remaining expenses.

To help raise the remaining $800, I'm trying to sell the remaining stock from our Etsy store, Stitching Our Family Together.  Everything in stock has been marked down significantly.  So this is a great time to help us reach the funding finish line while stocking up on gifts for Christmas or other occasions (or for yourself) at a great price.  Please take a look!  I have dish cloths/doilies, Bible covers, boys' and girls' ponchos, ruffle scarves, and baby/toddler blankets.

And our KEVA Structures building blocks and American Express gift card giveaway is still ongoing (winners will be drawn when our Reece's Rainbow FSP account hits $1000).  So far only a handful of people have entered.  If you have donated any money to our FSP in the last month or two, please let us know so we can enter you accordingly!  One entry to win one of the prizes for each $1 donated.

Three brothers and a sister happy that their newest brother
is coming home soon!
