Garage Sale For Mindy Rescheduled

UPDATE: Our fundraiser Garage Sale which was postponed in May due to the flood is now back on! We will hold it on Saturday July 17th.

WHAT: A Garage Sale to raise funds to help us bring Mindy home

WHEN: Saturday, July 17, 2010; 8am until we can't take it anymore

WHERE: 176 Riverwood Drive, Franklin, TN (in the Cottonwood subdivision)

Two ways you can help:

1. Come to our sale! We will have lots of items for sale, including baby items, some furniture, tools, outdoor items, household goods. Plus, the kids want to help and will likely have snacks and drinks for sale.

2. Donate items to our sale! Unfortunately, we lost several boxes of items we had stored in our garage for the sale when we were flooded, so we can really use additional items for our sale. If you are looking at clearing anything out of your garage or attic, this would be a great way to do so. Unfortunately we are not set up to sell clothing, but almost anything else would be SO appreciated. We know many of you already donated items for our sale...THANK YOU!! If you have any items to donate, please email us at We will make arrangements to get those items from you.

Thank you everyone!

Our Homestudy is Done.....Again!

We have made some GREAT progress this week! We haven't posted here in several weeks, as things have just seemed to be at a standstill. But, in the past week we have successfully transitioned our homestudy to a new agency...Jewish Family Service in Nashville. We met with our new Social Worker last Friday, and she visited our home to meet with the girls on Wednesday. She completed ALL the paperwork and submitted it to our agency, which approved it today. IT'S DONE!!!

So, next step is for us to finalize the dossier paperwork and get it all apostilled...probably over the next week or so. Then we can submit the dossier to the foreign country and wait for our first travel dates!
