Getting close!


Scroll down to see our soap fundraiser and the scents available 

So here we are the end of April and waiting for our Article 5.  

What is the Article 5?  It is a letter to inform us that our petition to adopt Michael has been sent to the appropriate visa-issuing post where the adoption interview will take place.

What does it mean?  It means that we have only 1 more step before we receive travel approval!!

How long will it take?  4-6 weeks is all!!

So what does it mean in the long run?  It means we still need to fundraise.  We have raised $4215 so far and thanking and praising God for it!  We aren't quite there yet though.

In addition to our Goat Milk Soap fundraiser that we have extended until Sunday May 1st, we also have the matching grant with Lifesong.  We have posted on the right hand side bar how donations can be made to our family.

Please pray that we will raise the rest of the funds before we travel.  Thank you so much!

Blessings and Hugs!

Black Raspberry

The sweet raspberry scent is softened by a hint of vanilla. This is an across the board favorite, delighting little girls, ladies, and grown men alike.

Clean Cotton
Yes - this really does smell like freshly laundered cotton and people just love it!. It is a very fresh and clean scent.

Nautical - Great for Men!

This is a masculine scent (that the women love).  It's perfect for all those men out there that want a soap just for them.
Oatmeal Milk & Honey

It is hard to resist the wonderful fragrance of oatmeal, milk & honey.  It is a very clean and warm fragrance that pulls you in with that sweetness of honey.  

This is a beautiful bar that is swirled with different shades of blue and white.  This is an amazingly clean scent that appeals to both men and women.

Pink Sugary
It is so hard to resist the scent of Pink Sugary. A wonderful sweetness, the hints of vanilla actually turn the bar a deep shade of brown instead of pink.

Luv Spell

This is a lovely, feminine scent that smells of citrus and florals.  It is a very pretty, scent for all the ladies.  Similar to Victoria Secrets Love Spell

Lavender - Essential Oil

The scent of lavender is a perennial favorite and one of our best sellers.  It is made with lavender essential oil.


Remember walking outside during the summer and catching the scent of a nearby honeysuckle vine?  This soap smells just like that. It is a truly beautiful honeysuckle scent with a hint of jasmine.

 Purity (Unscented)

This soap has no added fragrance for those with dry, sensitive skin. It's just plain, good for your skin, goat milk soap! Lots of people use this soap on babies or people with eczema.

Letter and photos, again!

The title of this posts says it all. 

Look at our boy!!

We are so happy to know that he is so excited about having a forever family! 

We have been asked, when do we think we may travel?  Our best guess is June.  Yes, that's right, it's coming up and quickly!

Still fundraising and keeping the faith that God WILL provide!  Even though the enemy is trying to tell us otherwise.  We'll leave that for another post.

So without further adieu.  Here's his letter we received with the photos.

Dear Baba and Mama,
I am so happy to get the gift of study machine from my forever family.  

I am very very happy to own the study machine because it will improve my English.

I cannot wait to meet you and my older and younger brother and my little sister.  I am so dreaming of be together with my forever family.  When that day  comes, my family will be full of love and happiness.

Now I am the class monitor in my classroom.  I can help my teacher to do some works for my classmates.  My study is excellent.  But I study harder.

Thanks again for the very nice gift for study from you.  I will use the study machine very well.
