The sales are over and we're hanging tight waiting for our first visit with our social worker for our Home Study!

In other good news: We made enough from our Garage Sale Fundraiser to cover our apartment rental for our 6 week stay on Majuro!! Thank you everyone so much for the donations and support!

Not a whole lot to report, hopefully there will be more soon after our Home Study stuff really starts.

So much love!

All the pieces for our application were officially submitted. We had a couple things on hold because Shawn had to get his fingerprints and medical forms done. Work had been crazy busy for him lately so we had to wait until he had free time to make those appointments. But they're now done and handed over! One step closer!

Shawn and I both have part-time jobs now and are starting to plan fundraisers to get the remaining balance that we need. Luckily we'll have 6 weeks together in the Marshall Island's when this is all done to reconnect! We're basically not going to see each other on weekends anymore =(

We've also announced our need to fund raise to family and friends. It's very humbling for Shawn and I to 1) see how much support we actually have and 2) to ask for financial help. We've always prided ourselves with being able to manage on our own but in times like these you learn how much support you have around you and how many people are willing to pitch in to make your dreams come true. It's amazing and the only word I can use to describe it is Humbling, brings you to your knees with gratitude humbling. Amazing. Thank you all so much for everything, even writing to say you'll keep us in you thoughts is what we need right now. Thank you.
