Save the Date!

We are officially hosting our Mother/Son fundraiser event on Mar. 20 at Lincoln Christian Church, 6:00. It will include dinner and various games, including playing Wii with your son!! More details to come…..

BTW, we finally got our USCIS appointment to get our fingerprints scanned in St. Louis in March! Immigration needs these so they can send us an I-171 document–the last thing we need for our dossier (international papers) to send to Ethiopia! Baby steps…. 🙂

Father/Daughter Dance Success!

Maura Michael Erin

A great time was had by all at the Father/Daughter Dance last weekend!  The decorations were lovely, the food was yummy, the music was fun, the girls were gorgeous, and the fathers were reminded how special that father/daughter bond is.

It was a dreamy night for the girls, and I was so proud of all the dads on the dance floor.  They were even out there attempting the Macarena and the Hoedown Throwdown!  You won’t see that every day!  I think it was an evening that will not soon be forgotten.  In fact, we have been asked to make it a yearly occasion, so watch for it, along with a Mother/Son event in February.

The event raised money for three families’ adoptions, but it also helped to raise awareness of everyone’s role in caring for the “fatherless.”  We are so thankful to all who attended and those who are praying and supporting us in other ways.  We LOVE that you are on this journey with us!

Our fundraiser flyers are going out to all K-8 girls in Lincoln this week!  We are excited that all the schools said yes!  And we are excited to offer the Father/Daughter Dance in Mt.
