Puzzle & adoption update

Hard to believe it has been almost a month since I last posted! I am happy to report we have had a few VERY generous donations sent our way recently. The official count on the puzzle pieces is 74 pcs. We aren't giving up hope yet! All things come in God's perfect time!
I would like to offcially announce the approval of a seedling grant from an organization called Brittany's Hope. The way this works is they approve a grant amount and we are required to raise 1/2 of the money in return for others to use. So if they grant us $4,000 we are required to raise $2,000. You can look at it as a dollar for dollar grant, they will match every dollar we raise upto $2,000. This is an AWESOME opportunity for us to keep reaching towards our goal!!
As a way to kick this event off we are holding a "Flapjack's for a Cause" pancake breakfast at our local Applebee's. The event will be held on Sunday September 18th from 8-10am. The greatest part is we able to hold a silent auction or raffles as well. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing tickets~ they are just $7/pp
If you would like to make a tax deductible donation please send checks payable to: Brittany's Hope

Our family is longing for the day we can meet Mira and welcome her to her Forever Family! It seems so far off, but I know with God's perfect timing and His plan all will come together.
