Update of Sorts

It's time for an update!

We signed our paperwork in December so now we are officially licensed as a matched adopt home. What does this mean? It means that we passed everything and can now "officially" be on the lookout for kiddos. Our case manager will be looking for us and we will keep our eyes on the TARE website. Most kids are matched before they make it onto TARE, so chances our that our case manager will be calling us at some point with a match! The process after that is full of things to do, so right now we are just focusing on our ongoing training (we have quarterly home visits that include reports on what we've learned and how we'll apply it) and getting our hearts and home ready for our new children.

I've been posting some things about fundraisers so I'll let you know what I still have going right now. For the moment I'm not doing any online fundraisers, but I am selling things that we've had donated to us or sold to us at a great discount! Here is what I have:

I can't purchase anything at the moment, but keep posting. I'm sure a day will come when I can!

Great news Kim! I'll be praying that God places the children He wants to be in your family, to be a blessing to you and you to them : ) So glad you've opened your hearts (and soon your home) to the fatherless!
