Golden Ticket! No So Golden, Actually

Well, IT arrived in the mail yesterday, the infamous Golden Ticket! We are officially approved by USCIS to bring home two children, ages 0-6, with special needs, from U-Know-Where! The piece of paper itself is quite plain, however. Unfortunately we found out we need to get our 2010 taxes done before we submit our dossier as they will no longer accept 2009 returns.

BUT...this morning I sent (almost) everything off for apostilles! We're getting closer and closer to completing one of my two Big D's: Dossier and Dissertation.

This morning I was blessed to join a group of women from our church for an EARLY time of prayer and cinnamon rolls. I really enjoyed seeing the sun rise and getting to know these other women better. This was my first week going and I hope to make it a habit. One of the first books I read as a new Christian was Too Busy Not To Pray, and that is how I've been feeling lately. I knew I needed some accountability and I think this group is going to be really helpful. Thanks for having me, ladies!

And now it's time for me to beg: I haven't wanted to do this, but as it seems that we will be traveling sooner than expected we need the money sooner than we thought. Right now we are short about $13,000. I know some people have told me they plan to give, but not how much. If you could let me know when you plan to give and how much, that would be extremely helpful in our planning. If you have been waiting for a good time, NOW IS GOOD!

If you want a chance to win our necklace then please donate through the Chip-In; otherwise you can donate through Reece's Rainbow via PayPal or check. And PLEASE spread the word about our giveaway! I'm begging you, unashamedly. For Riley, not for ourselves.
"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matt. 6:20-21
