The number i was given was told to me as "give or take a little" but the "give or take" was NOT a little!!! The new total from yesterday is a LOT different than originally thought. At Uplift this morning i was told that i had the incorrect total & that i needed to actually check it for myself! SO, we just got home, got out the calculator, checked it twice, added two people's checks that are still coming and came up with........ $2,353.14!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??????? OH MY GOODNESS!!!!
This morning we had another Boutique Sale, this time for our Uplift Home School Group of Moms/Dads. Our total for there is $309 EVEN!!! AMAZING!!!
For a total of the two days...$2,662.14 which means when we combine that with our $2,705.00 from our Reece's Rainbow Grant we will have enough to go on our first trip to see Ethan!!! We are praying that we will find out dates this week but we are NOT counting on it until next week. The dates for our first trip can be anywhere from the end of December to the middle of February! (February our son, Ethan, will be turning 3 yrs old & that is when we were praying that we would be bringing him home. It will DEFINITELY not be but we are praying that the time will go quickly!)
There are still people who want to buy some of Catherine's trivets & take a look at the other items that didn't sell so we will be selling even more! We are amazed and LOVE that this came from SO MANY DIFFERENT people! THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR WORK AND YOUR GENEROSITY!!! We are ALWAYS blessed! Connie for the crew


  1. Oh Connie!! I'm sooo happy for you!!! God is good!! You will have Ethan in your arms in NO time!!

  2. WooHoo! Such great news! Praying you hear your dates soon!
