Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

James 1:27

He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.

Ephesians 1:5-6

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.

Isaiah 1:17

LID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let the Count Down Begin!

Well we are officially LID! (Sorry I'm a little late in posting about this :)) Lock in Date means we are locked into China's system-they now know we mean business! We are now in the LOOOONG wait period. LOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOA mean Letter of Approval-I believe it's the final approval from our Pre-approval that we got that Nina is ours :)!!! It has been reported to being from 13 days to 100+ days so there really is NO way of knowing when it will come! But once you have crossed the LOA hurtle, most people are super excited because most waits after that point are weeks or even days instead of months! So now we wait-and REALLY start some major fundraising!!!
Speaking of.......................this Wednesday the 17th of April, Chick-fil-A is hosting a Spirit night from 5-8p to help us raise money! 10% or more, based on the turn out, of everyone's order goes to our adoption. You have to present the flier for it to count. There will also be a wheel there to spin and with every spin you WILL get a prize! 100% of the money for every spin goes to US!!! So come on out to a great company eat GREAT food and help a GREAT cause!!!

Here's the link to the flyer:

Many companies and friends have already given us some pretty nice things to raffle off and for that we say THANK YOU!!!! We are blown away by the hearts of friends and strangers who have been willing to give to us!!! But there is still plenty of time if you want to give to the auction!!! WE would LOVE if you could all have a part of bringing home our sweet sweet baby girl!
