I'm really excited about the new donations made to the puzzle fundraiser. With the ChipIn button we can't include donations that were given to us by hand or mailed in so we added a thermometer tracker to show the right total. It is at the bottom of the page. Thank you to those who recently donated - we really appreciate it and you can see that the border of the puzzle is almost completely connected thanks to your generosity.
Sadly (and a bit frustratingly if that's a word), we are not "officially" done with our homestudy yet. We are waiting on our criminal history background checks from when we lived in Georgia. Our adoption agency has reviewed the homestudy though and all the corrections have been made. As soon as we get that last piece of information we can package up all our paperwork and get it authenticated. I believe we have to send it to Chicago. I have a call in to our homestudy agency to see if they can let me know when we might have it back. It could be this week or even three weeks from now...
Oh! We were approved to work with a not-for-profit called Kingdom Kids. What it means is that if you donate to our adoption through them you will be able to write it off on your taxes. I'll try to get more information about Kingdom Kids and how to donate through them later in the week.
In His name,
The Burgess Family
