We have been approved for CCAI and had our orientation last night. Next comes lots of paper work and our homestudy. We really need to raise some additional funds in order to get the ball rolling quickly. To do that, we are having an online fundraiser beginning August 1st and it will run through September 1st. We would love your support in getting the word out. There will be lots of wonderful vendors. Some are local, some are far away friends:-)

If you have a good or service that you would like to donate we are still collecting! Thank you so much to all of you who have already. I have been so touched by the sweet and thoughtful way even strangers have supported us. Show these sweet folks some love by visiting their shops and let them know that Sarah from anoceansizedlove sent you. You can find their shops on our sidebar or by visiting the Friends page.

We have also been prayerfully considering a file on a baby boy through CCAI. I won't give out details at this time because it is very uncertain and frankly, we don't know what is going to happen. It is such a hard choice.

 I have bonded to a picture! In many ways international adoption is so different from domestic. There is really no way to bond to more than the idea of a baby when you adopt domestically. With international adoption, your first glimpse or idea of your little person is a picture. A picture can mean the world.

I know that if this particular little boy is not meant for us, our prayers are meant for him. And our journey will continue!

Love to all,
