I have to admit that by the end of last week I was really feeling stressed. I had just realized that our marriage certificates needed to be appostilled in NY because that is where we were married. I also realized that if and when I get my proof of home mortgage I'll have to send that out of state as well to be appostilled. Needless to say I was feeling pretty bummed.
To make matters worse I found out yesterday morning that my home study wasn't going to be ready by the end of the day like we had thought. So I was even more disappointed. That is when I got an email from my husband and I realized that we were so blessed to have such amazing people in our lives.
Chris's work had taken up a collection for us to go towards our adoption of Milana. His bosses said they would match whatever was donated. So we found out yesterday that we got a really great donation which will be heading to Reece's Rainbow to go into Milana's account. I just can't say enough how excited I am about this. Not to mention how much I appreciate everyone at Kennedy Office for helping us in our fundraising efforts to bring Milana home!
I can't stress enough how blessed we are to have the friends we have who are always thinking of ways to raise money for us - Lydia, Kristin, Martha, Alene, Alice, Jess, Jess's Mom, just to name a few. It means so much to us that we have your support and your ideas. I'm sure you have all figured out I am not creative by any means and need all the help that I can get :)
Thank you all for all you do for us!
