I'm not sure how to update everyone because this is really just going to be a slow process.

The yard sale is going to be March 13th and 14th. Depending on how the first one goes, we may have another sale the following weekend. We have set a deadline for items receieved to be March 1 so that we can have time to sort and price.

Daniel and I will be driving around doing pick-ups this coming weekend, Feb 14th, 15th and 16th so if you'd like to us to stop be please let me know as soon as possible.

I have been talking to Cheri, the lady who will be doing our homestudy and she has given us a list of things to start working on. Background checks, fingerprinting, drug tests, 911 call report, pet vaccines, child abuse registry check, past taxes and other piles of paperwork to have ready....
Again, this will be a slow process so please continue to keep us in your prayers.

Many of you have shared your own personal experiences and I'm so grateful for you.
I'm unsure what this journey will bring but I am praying that it will just continue to knit our hearts together and just grow us in our walk with Christ.

Thank you again for your support in this journey
