We are so very thankful....

We cannot even begin to describe how blessed we feel to have so many wonderful friends and family.  For the last four days we have been in full blown garage sale mode.  We have been all over Coppell picking up generous donations for the sale.  There are so many amazing pieces- two treadmills, a sleeper sofa, antique chairs and lamps, 2 desks, wingback chairs, a wooden playset, a 1966 Encyclopedia Britannica set, 5 TV's (yes, five!), strollers and so much more.  It's been a lot of work getting everything organized, but we know it will all be worth it in the end.  We cannot thank you all enough for all the love, support, and prayers you have sent our way.

One more thing we accomplished this week- our paperwork for All God's Children!  My goodness, there must have been over twenty places in that 12 page contract that we needed a notary.  Thank you Susan for being so patient with us, we love you!  Our contract hits the mail tomorrow- a major hurdle in our "paperwork" stage.

Next week we will compile our documents for the home study.  Luckily, since we just completed this process back in November, we have all our paperwork organized and tabbed in a binder.  Really all we need to do is get a medical clearance from the doctor.  Our wonderful social worker, Tinya, from Family to Family, will start meeting with us the last week in June and is hopeful she will finish in less than six weeks.  Amazing!

Lastly, we are posting a video below for all to see.  Dennis Wilkinson, the pastor at FUMC Coppell, has been an incredible cheerleader for our adoption cause.  Not only did he climb up into his super hot attic to grab some items for the garage sale, but he has been spreading the word of our adoption.  We love Pastor Dennis!  If you watch below you will see his son, Graham, is tremendously talented.  One of our favorite things about this video is getting to see the extended family sing along with Graham.

Garage Sale

That's right, we are having our very first fundraiser on Friday, June 17th in Coppell.  We would love to take all your junk (and by that we mean anything!) off your hands for the sale.  Just give us a call and we will come pick it up!

Natalie is putting the final touches on the Scott Adoption T-Shirts and meeting with our favorite t-shirt lady tomorrow.  We will post the images on here soon and start taking orders.

Please, please continue to pray for our adoption.  We are excited, scared, overwhelmed, and overjoyed to be at this stage.
