An Update and an End Date!

Yay! We finally finished putting the puzzle together!!! 

And here is the finished product!!!

 It is so cute! 

So now what? Well, now we start putting names on it! We are so excited that as of today we have sold 125 pieces to our puzzle! That is awesome! We have also continued to receive extra donations and have been blessed to be able to continue adding to this fund ourselves, helping us get so close to our goal!

We decided that we needed to put an "end date" on this fundraiser, as the baby could come any time now, and we'd love to have it framed and finished when we bring that baby home! (That, and when the baby does arrive, I know I will be way too busy with three kids to ever get this project done!) So, because Lily's birthday is coming up in just a couple of weeks, June 19th to be exact, we thought that would be a great time to wrap up this fundraiser! What a difference a year makes.

We are praying that this fundraiser will complete our goal and this adoption will be fully funded by the end of it! If you have been meaning to sponsor any puzzle pieces, now is the time to do it! We will begin writing names on pieces tomorrow! 

The last day to purchase pieces will be June 19th, after that we are going to frame it and hang it up in our home, ready to greet our new little one! 

Thank you so incredibly much for your support, both financially and emotionally, of this adoption. We have come such a long way since we started this road, and we can't wait to see what's next.

Don't forget, we are compiling notes and letters to our child and would love one from you! I have received such sweet words of love to this baby so far and I know they will mean the world to this child someday!

There are still PLENTY of pieces left, so if you would like your name or family's name on one, let us know before June 19th! Keep our family in your prayers as we continue to await a phone call. We will keep you posted!
