We are almost submitted. We hoped yesterday would be the day, but now we are hoping for Thursday the 13th. We haven't gotten back official information about either of the boys yet. We are hoping to hear about Theo soon, but Orion's papers were only turned in this week so we won't have his results until around the same time we get our travel dates. There *shouldn't* be any problems, but it would be good to know that the official paperwork says it too!
Speaking of traveling - we still have no idea when we will travel. (Sorry about that!) We can guess it will be 8 to 12 weeks from now. Some people travel in as little as 4 or 5 weeks, but we can't submit our dossier for the faster process because we don't know for sure if our boys qualify.
When our FSP reads $1887 we will be fully-funded for Theo's adoption costs. I have an awesome video of him playing a xylophone that I can't wait to share! At this moment we are at $1201. We have a check for $527 that should be added any time now, which would bring us up to $1728. We have a bunch of fundraisers that you can check out HERE! $159 and his costs will be covered so we can start working on Orion's!
Here are some other fundraising needs:
Salome has a $1500 matching grant that ends on February 14th. Her grant needs to read $8711 for her to receive the match. Her total grant will be over $10,000 at that point!
Her birthday is March 13th so we really need to help her find a family. A family ONLY needs to mail in form i600a before her birthday. (Homestudy can be done later!) It takes a few days for paperwork to get through the internal mail system for USCIS, so it needs to happen in less than a month! Please tell people about her. You never know who might be her mama.
There is a t-shirt fundraiser for the Kunkle family, adopting Jenni.
Sutter's family could use some support!
The auction for the Novit family ends TODAY! Check it out!
I am still offering two gift cards for an equal donation to the Stolz family, adopting Andrei! You can have a $50 gift card to Montgomery Inn or a $25 card for Honey Baked Ham if you make an equal donation to their account. Contact me if you donate so I can send you your card! The boy they are adopting used to live at the same place as Theo and Orion. He aged out during the fall.
The Jenks family has a matching grant right now. They still need $993 to meet it! They are adopting two older girls who have been waiting for a very long time.
I am very happy to say that Casey and Iggy's family is now funded!
