I told you I was going to be a bad blogger, its been a couple of days since the homestudyand I haven't even written anything!
Well all I can say at this point is that it went very well. The social worker is very nice and we are very comfortable with her. Its far from being over, but I know it will go by fast regardless...of my having to endure minutes of having to listen to Fred talk about his first marriage, with a big smile on his face!
An Orphan's Tear or
Bringing Hope Home Panda
BOTH : $19.99 EACH
I just received my chains that I ordered for the fundraising, its a little 'Orphan's Tear' in silver. Each chain I sell gives 25 cups of food, on top of shares that go to Hope. So I am proud of this one because it is a gift that keeps on giving, and its actually a very pretty peice.
I also ordered these little panda bears that have t shirts on them that read, 'Bringing Home Hope'. They come in tomorrow I think, and we will also be selling those, along with a huge garage sale that will take place soon..in which Freddy agreed to sell his massage chair..folks the man is serious! What a man!
We've spoken to the church as well; and we want to be baptized together Freddy & I, and so there is going to be a lot of work on that end also. Stuff like, carwashes, BBQ's, spaghetti dinners etc. My brothers are helping me tremendously, along with all the pretty girls that follow them around.
I don't remember if we announced this yet or not, but it's official our daughter to be will be named Hope Isabel'. I just found this beautiful representation of what the name Hope means to us, along with the fact that Freddy's mother and grandmother, are named Hope.
H-EAR FROM GOD:
Orphans are so significant to the heart of God... Communities of faith should always begin any work by listening to God...
The church must respond to God’s call to care for orphans in some way... Start with the little things that God has put in front of your church...
Whether it's orphan care or adoption ministry, an important step is taking the time to assess your church needs as well as your resources as a church community...
We serve a God who is also in the business of miracles, and you can expect to experience Him as you join Him in His work with the Fatherless...
