First Home Study Visit and A Cool Fundraiser

One of the first pictures we saw of Ana-Cherie

We had our first home study visit on Sunday. New social worker, so it was a little nerve-wracking at first, but she turned out to be very nice, a very sweet person. We cleaned up the house, but with 5 people and a number of cats, there's only so much that can be done and kept done. But it was a nice visit, and it's just finishing out visits and getting everything finished now.

On another note, on the day of our first home study visit, it was also four months until we have to have our dossier in China. We have to have it in China by Feb 21, 2013. When you realize it's that close, it's a little overwhelming. But we will get it all done, we will get all the funds together. I believe things are meant to be, and therefore they will work out. We just have to put in our own efforts, as well. Our Tupperware fundraiser is running through Oct 26 (you can shop here: http://order.tupperware.com/pls/htprod_www/!twx$eparty_ctl.p_guest_welcome?pv_eparty=267af90a1b264a4634eb48fdd0a20088). We get 40% of the proceeds from that.

Also, Adeye at No Greater Joy Mom is hosting a giveaway (you can get there by clicking on that link). She is giving away THREE $100 gift cards (Walmart, Target, and a Visa gift card). In order to enter, you just have to contribute to one of the 51 families who posted fundraisers on her blog, and comment on the above post that you contributed to the fundraiser. We are #30, and it is our ongoing Puzzle Piece fundraiser that I have mentioned a few times. It's a really great opportunity to help adopting families, and you get entered for a gift card too. And I know we could all use an extra $100, what with Christmas around the corner.

We REALLY appreciate your support! Thank you SOOOO much!

Reese has another eye doctor appointment tomorrow, to see if the new oral medication (plus the acupuncture we've been getting her) has brought her pressure down from the 40 it was about 2 weeks ago. We really hope it has.
