Yep, that's right. Abigail is scheduled to arrive in 13 days! (Dec. 21 for those who are math challenged.) We have one final thing to do before our homestudy is complete, and that appointment is scheduled for tomorrow night. We do not know how long that will take, and we do not know how much it will cost. (Last year we paid a reduced rate of $400.) This expense is not counted in the cost of our adoption :(
I've been researching grants, and there are several we are going to apply for. However, we cannot apply for grants before our homestudy is complete or after placement. You can see the time crunch we are in!
In the meantime we are continuing our magazine fundraiser. (Brace yourself, shameless begging to follow!) So far, we have raised $77.60, which is wonderful! That is from three people's orders. I know that many of you read magazines, and I promise you, the prices are very good. You don't pay more to support our cause. In fact, my dad found his Time magazine renewal was only $25 instead of the $40 "offer" Time was offering!
So, please buy one! They offer everything from Parents to Newsweek to People to the ever popular gun magazines. I know that you'll find something for you or all the people on your Christmas list!
So what are you waiting for?? Order a magazine today!
P.S. I'll still love you and let you read my blog even if you don't :)
P.P.S. Don't miss the picture posts I added earlier today!
