31 Bag Fundraising Party

So, it's been a long 6 months of waiting, and although we don't know when we will get the awaited phone call from our agency telling us we've been matched with a child, we know that we are getting so much closer as each day goes by.

Not too much news on the adoption front. We have been hearing from our wonderful agency once a week, and they have told us recently that the Ethiopian government is now processing more adoption cases and doing everything they can to make it as fast as possible. Our agency is still issuing  out court dates, so we are thankful that it has not come to a stand still.

We have been busy at the Michael house preparing for our little man to come home from getting him a bed to sleep in to becoming accustomed to Ethiopian food (it's not my favorite food in the entire world, but at least Jordan loves it!) We are still taking our adoption parenting training and every little thing we do, is helping pass the time.

Another thing that we are preparing right now, is a 31 Bag party. A dear client of mine is a 31 Bag consultant and has offered to throw us a fundraiser party where the proceeds will go to our adoption. How amazing is she!!!! To learn more about 31 Bags and their ministry go to They have some of THE cutest bags, totes, storage bins, and accessories that can all be personally customized to your liking AND it just so happens if you place an order by the end of August through our event you get an additional 15% off! We want to invite everyone to our party and if you can't make it, please check out the catalog online HERE and order something online through our event. I am definitely going to be purchasing some bags, myself, for Christmas presents. What lady wouldn't love a bag! Proceeds will benefit our adoption from all sales. Here is the information for the party, please let us know if you can make it.
