We had no idea how many people to expect to come to our fundraiser. We had hoped for maybe 25, but there were 68 children, plus parents!! WOW!!!
Our niece, Kailee arrived with her posse, late Thursday night! She brought beautiful pirate and princess cookies that were donated in exchange for a Princess party. Emily Fitchlee, Kailee's best friend, Titus, Buck, Addie, Avree, Bo, Eli and Stephanie all piled in the mini van and took the long trip to share in our exciting time!
We had so many wonderful friends that loved on us and helped us do everything!
Emily Anne- Cinderella
Eli- Prince Charming
Taylor Townsend (high school, church friend)- Belle
CJ- Jedi Trainer
We cleared over $3500!!!! Thank you Lord for providing for us to bring our daughter home!
Today is AhRin's 2nd birthday. It is bittersweet. We so wish we could be there to celebrate with her. We were able to send a care package with another family that is traveling next week to pick up their son! Below is a picture of all her birthday treats and a few things we sent for foster mom (scarf, vitamins, memory card)! Charlie and Jerri Lynn made special cards for her and we sent her a photo album to introduce ourselves. We hope to send a video of our family next time, so she can see us all! Sweet girl, we love you more than you know and can't wait for you to come join in the Jacobs' family!
Today we got our official acceptance to Korea!!!! So, we are officially starting the wait. We pray that God will expedite her paperwork and she will be home sooner than we think! Happy Birthday AhRin!
Our home study is finally approved!!! Now, we can get 18 forms notarized and overnighted to Dillon to get our ATK (Acceptance to Korea)! It is our official Statement of Adoption, that we want Kim, AhRin to be our daughter!! Thank you Lord for bringing this sweet girl into our lives and please hurry up her getting home!
CJ leaves in the morning at 8:00 to go out of town, so we have to get this notarized before then! Pray that we can get it done at the kids school! We have to have done before he leaves or it will delay another week:(
