"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

Just plugging along!

Our homestudy is complete, and so is our dossier save for USCIS clearance. So we are still on track! Coming up, we have some amazing Mud Love bracelets for sale. They are custom designed and so neat. We own some Mud Love products and love them. I'll post some pictures soon!

Here we go Again!

We are back on the ride! This time, to China! We fell in love with a little one, and we weren't expecting it! She just appeared, and we really fought it. We don't have the funds, we really didn't want to start over, all the what if's, the can we's, the whys. But there she was, and we relented to what we already knew.... She's meant to be ours. We have pre-approval from China to adopt. This means they've given us the go ahead to compile a dossier and send it. She's officially on hold for us, and if we continue the way we have, we'll be DTC (dossier to China) in August. That puts us travelingaround February. We'll be doing fundraisers this time, along with my etsy shop. Since we weren't planning to adopt again, it's necessary. Please share my etsy on Facebook, etc. we appreciate it! Our first fundraiseristhis tshirt! The girls helped me design it.... They love wishing on wild flowers. https://www.bonfirefunds.com/lets-go-to-china I'll share pictures as I can. She's a beautiful little girl. She has hydrocephalus like Alina and Cerebral palsy like Anna. She's doing great and we are just so excited, working hard to get to her.

Halloween is over.... time to Christmas shop!

We had a great Halloween! Big A doesn't dress up anymore, he has enjoyed handing out candy for the last few years. Anth was a wolf again, Alina was an astronaut, and Anna was a pirate!

And I was only partially kidding about Christmas shopping.... my Etsy shop is open and taking orders for Christmas! I have six ready to ship dolls at special prices, and custom listings as well if you would like to order a specific doll. I can make them to look like your favorite kid, your kids favorite characters, or just about anything!

This little cutie has long red braids and green eyes! She's so sweet!

This cutie patootie has black hair and little curly pigtails, and black eyes! She's adorable!

There are many more, and also the custom listings. I can embroider your childs name, birth date or special day on the dolls for no charge!
