We were blessed so greatly yesterday!  Last fall, we applied for several grants.  One was Show Hope, Steven Curtis Chapman’s organization.  Yesterday we received a letter in the mail that we were being awarded a $5,000 grant!  The financial aspect of our adoption has been one of faith and wondering how the Lord will provide all the necessary funds.  We knew that the Lord called us to this and knew He would provide in His time.  We are blown away at this amazing provision.  The Lord has placed so many friends & family in our path who have been a great help!  We are now only $6,650 away from our placement fee and our ultimate goal!

UPDATE on Adoption Process

We are in the waiting stage of our adoption process.  We are waiting for Jessica, our social worker @ Agape, to call and tell us we have been chosen.  We are ready to bring Baby Hayes home!

Thank you all for your prayers, support and generosity.

Here are our current fundraisers still in progress:

Amazon Fundraising

Our adoption journey has been one of great faith and lots of learning. One thing we are completely sure of is that it will cost lots of money! 

We were so excited to learn of Amazon's Affiliate Program!  You purchase something on Amazon and we earn a small portion of your purchase in commission.  All earnings will go into our adoption fund to bring Baby Hayes home.  Just click here to start some fun Amazon shopping. 

Thank you for supporting our family!

Madison Square Mall

When we were growing up, Madison Square Mall was an exciting place to go.  We loved Kristy's Pals with their Hello Kitty and fun grab bags, Everything's a $1 and also KB Toys. There are many happy childhood memories at Madison Square.  JcPenney and Sears (two of my favs) were the last to close their doors.

It is hard to believe that after 33 years Madison Square will be torn down to make way for the new MidCity venue.  New things are good, but it is hard to see a Huntsville landmark leave us.  Fond memories will always be there.

Here is a link to Katy's blog.  We do after all share all the same memories.

Cuteness Overload!

Honey Bunch is our precious little fur ball.

Here she is waiting on water.  She is not spoiled in the slightest.  Wink wink.

Here she is when we heard Daddy coming home from work.

Valentine's Day

Valentine's with my sweetheart is always sweet and special.  I prayed for many years for a husband to share my love with.  I am so blessed the Lord have me Nick.  He is the most thoughtful and giving man.  His love is without strings or expectations.  His goal is to make me feel love and cherished.  Love this man with all my heart!

He surprised me in the morning with red roses, chocolate and a stuffed teddy bear.  For dinner we went to PF Chang's and enjoyed a wonderful dinner of Lettuce Wraps, Chang's Spicey Chicken, Mongolian Beef and Fried Rice.  We were stuffed after all that.

After dinner, Nick said he had a surprise for me.  We went to the Brighton Store and I got to pick out a lovely charm for my charm bracelet.  Thank you honey for making Valentine's special.  Love you.

The New Me Progress

I have been on a weight loss journey since the beginning of the year.  After receiving a discouraging report at the doctor, I knew I needed to make major changes in my life.  When the Lord blesses us with a baby, I want to be the healthiest I can be.  I have lost 28 lbs so far and I am just getting started.   The left picture was in September and the right side was on Saturday.  So nice to see the progress!
