Quilt Fundraiser!

Ok for all of you who have donated to the hugs and kisses quilt here is an update!

I pick up the quilt tonite from the quilters and will post a picture. I will draw the winning name on Friday after I post all who have donated to make sure my list has all the proper names on it! Once the winning name is picked I will post it here!
so please watch the blog so that you can provide me with an address to send it to!

Thanks to all who donated and good luck.

Remember in about two weeks there will be the bell quilt and all new pictures are on it so watch for that someone special on that quilt and fell free to bid on it!

I am sorry for not posting much but I am getting a bit discourged.. I keep running into walls with the paperwork and that has taken up alot of my time.

I also had my heart broken the other day as my 18 year old decided to contact his birth mother and sprung it on me that he wanted to go live with her for the last two months before he left for the Military. I understand now why he did not tell me he has been talking to her on facebook for three months and it was because he did not want to hurt my feelings. I told him he has hurt me more by doing this without talking to me but he is 18 and has alot of unanswered questions. His birth father died last year and all he has left for getting answers is the birth mother. I don't trust her but do trust my son and pray for him everyday! Adoption is a life long road with lots of pot holes along the way but you just fill them and drive over them onto the next one. I love all my kids and that will never change.

God Bless The Dinnings

Here is a fun fundraiser. We made Lera's referal photo into 252 piece puzzle for us to take with us and have Lera put togather and give to the workers at the orphanage.
If you would like to buy a piece for one dollar please email me and I will send you our address so that you dont incure and charges through pay pal. It should be a fun thing for us to do in Russia! Please consider helping us reach our goal!

Busy Day!

Oh my Goodness!

What a day! I went through all my paperwork and make sure I had each and every document needed for the social worker. I called our insurance for a letter to state that Lera would be covered when we get her home and make copies of everything. I got it all togather and sent it off! I woke up this morning and found the most wonderful suprise of a a donation to Lera's adoption. The angel is from Minnesota and god bless them. How is that for Minnesota nice. Just a few more block to get donation for and then when the quilt comes back from the quilter its time to draw a name! I am so excited to see it finished. I am putting a new pic of Lera on here and hope you love our russian princess!
