The puzzle is framed and has been hung on the wall in Kate's nursery.  It is the perfect addition to her room!  Yet again, we'd like to say a big THANK YOU to every person who helped us along this adoption journey.  We have been so blessed to know each and every one of you.

Well, it's finished! We have been so bless with the love and support of so many people, some of which we didn't even know, and now the adoption puzzle is complete!  Now we've just got to get it framed and hang it up in Kate's nursery.  Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us- not just financially but with love, prayers, and kind words.  It means so much to us.

The past month has been CRAZY since Kate has joined our family and honestly, I just haven't even thought about updating the puzzle.  Last night Kevin took charge and updated the totals and took a few pictures, so here it is... As of today (September 14, 2011) a total of 234 puzzle pieces have been sponsored for a total of $1,170 raised! That blows my mind! What also blows my mind is that many of the pieces were sponsored by people that we don't even know personally! We have been so blessed with the love and support of so many people over the course of this adoption journey. Thanks to everyone for your help!  

Here is an updated picture of the puzzle! It's almost complete! Just 66 more pieces to be sponsored and it will be DONE.  Can't wait to flip it over to show all of the names and frame it for Kate's nursery!
And, here is a picture of who the puzzle has been for, although we didn't even know it when we began this fundraiser. This is Kate just relaxing in her bouncy chair.  Even though our wait wasn't nearly as long as it could have been and not nearly as long as we even expected, waiting is never easy.  She was definitely worth the wait!

As of today (July 17th) a total of 166 puzzle pieces have been sponsored!  That's over half!  We're so blessed to have the support of so many of the people in our lives.  Thanks for all that you have done for us.   We know that the next few weeks will be an exciting, but stressful time for both of us.  Please continue to pray for us!  Pray for patience for us, and pray that we will keep this verse in mind....  

Phillipians 4:6  Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

And, here's a picture of the puzzle to date!  



What is this "Adoption Puzzle" thing?

We're so excited about our adoption and KNOW without a doubt that this is exactly what God is calling us to do. Not in a year, not in 5 years, but now! Did you know that there are over 147 million orphans around the world? And not just around the world, (although the need is there also) but right here the USA.

Jeremiah 29:11... "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

We're ready to see how God wants to use us in His plans to provide a hope and a future to HIS children.

Our best guess is that our adoption will cost close to $20,000.  In an attempt to help offset some of those costs, we're asking people to sponsor a puzzle piece for $5 per piece.   If you buy a puzzle piece, we'll write your name on the back of the piece.  Once all of the pieces are sold, and the puzzle is completed, we'll frame the puzzle with the names facing outward.  We'd like to hang this in our nursery as a thank you to all of the people who are helping to make this adoption possible.

If you'd like to sponsor a puzzle piece, you can make your payment through Paypal.  To donate through Paypal just click on the link on the right hand side of this blog.  You'll have to put in the amount of pieces you'd like to sponsor, at $5 per piece.  Please note that you do not have to have a Paypal account to make the payment online.  Just click on the "Donate" button and then scroll down the page to the section that says "Don't have a Paypal account?" Click "Continue" and it will take you to a page to make your payment without having to create an account.  

If you're not comfortable with Paypal but would like to purchase a puzzle piece or two, feel free to send me an email.  I'll let you know our address and you can send a check.  My email address is kelleyandkevin@yahoo.com 

And, if you'd like to buy more than one puzzle piece, we'd be very grateful!  Thanks to you all for your prayers and support!!
