So close! Only $770 to go!

Hey everyone!
I have 9 hours to raise around $770! Like I posted before, I am trying to reach $2,000 because if I do, an anonymous giver will donate an extra $1,000 to our adoption fund! Please help me!!!! If you would like to donate, please donate through the blue chip-in at the bottom of this post! If you can not donate through the chip-in, please message me on Facebook and I will give you my parents paypal account email address so you can donate through there! We are SO close, and I would hate to miss this opportunity! Any donation amount helps :) Thank you so much!

$1,000 donation!

Hey friends!
Ashley here! So, I have a VERY special request! An anonymous person has given me an amazing opportunity and challenge! This person offered to give me a $1,000 donation towards our adoption if I could raise $2,000 by FRIDAY at midnight! Yes, I have FIVE days to raise $2,000! I know that we can do it though! With God all things are possible :) I have already raised $140 in the past couple of days, so that means that technically I only have to raise $1,860 in five days! I know we can do this :)
If you feel led to donate to help me reach my goal, please donate to the blue chip-in below! My parents would be so excited to come back and see that $3,000 has been raised for the adoption while they were gone. Please share, donate, and pray! Love to you all! Let's bring my baby sister home :)

A little update

Hey everyone!  I just wanted to give you all a little update on where we are with the adoption. So here is what is going on:
-Our homestudy is complete.
- We are USCIS approved! For those of you who don't know, USCIS approval is a BIG deal in the adoption world. It's referred to as the "golden ticket" from America to adopt. We had a little trouble with getting the approval at first because of a little mess up in the paper work. So, we had to clarify a few little things for them, and now everything is good.
- Our registration dossier has been notarized, apostilled, and sent off to our adoption agency. It should be received today! Once you send the registration dossier off, you could get the "OK" to travel at anytime so traveling is somewhere in the very near future!
- We are one paper away from completing our court dossier! We need to get our FBI clearances redone in a month before we can send it off, as well.
- We have been in the adoption process for about 10 months now.
- We are really struggling for funds, but we are trusting in the Lord to provide for us!

Thank you all so much for your prayers, support, and donations! They mean so much to us :)

Flapjack Fundraiser!!!

We are having a Flapjack Fundraiser to help us bring Autumn home!

We need to sell a minimum of 100 tickets. We get 50% of all profits made from the ticket sales. The tickets are $10 a person (If you are local, you must purchase tickets ahead of time from us....We have the tickets). All children 7 years old and under are free. Breakfast includes: pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, and a drink (coffee, orange juice, etc.). If you do not live close to where we are holding the fundraiser, you can still donate $10 to help us out. You can do so by donating to the chip-in on the side of this blog titled "Flapjack Fundraiser Donations."

Hope to see you there!
