Noonday Fundraiser!

First of all, I apologize for dropping out of the blogging world there for a little while! We have reached a whole new level of busy with the adoption paperwork... even when in graduate school, I do not believe I have had this much output required. It has been a trying time, but the Lord is gracious to remind me that this is a season, it too shall pass. He has been gracious to encourage me that in order to adopt me and millions of believers into the family of God, it was HARD. He understands. What comfort to know this as we walk through the beginning steps of our journey! He has also blessed me with a time of CELEBRATION of our boys with a Noonday party! It was such a fun time of fellowship, SHOPPING, talking, sipping coffee, and enjoying learning about the heart of Noonday. Click on their name if you want to know more! Such an inspiring and compassionate organization!
Here are a few pics of the party! 

So much pretty jewelry! All of us had a hard time deciding what to choose!
Don't you just want all of it??!

Beautiful scarves just in time for fall!

The only man in the whole party :-)

Final decisions...

LOVE these ladies! They are each so encouraging and inspiring to me!


Totally had a blast...

They even had a time of prayer for our family and for noonday! Sweet time of fellowship!

Kate Halaris, our ambassador, and myself. This lady has such a passion for adoption and for supporting artisans around the world! Check our her page here: http://www.katehalaris.noondaycollection.com

With this party and the generous gift of our ambassador, the Lord provided $125 towards bringing our boys home!!! We are so close to our goal of $2175 for our next payment! God is so good. He cares for the orphans. He cares for our boys across the world, in the DRC. Such a comforting thought! Thanks ladies for a FANTASTIC evening!
