Quick China update and possible fundraiser

This isn't going to be a very exciting update, but when a lot of people ask the "where are you now?" question when I see them face-to-face, I figure it's time to write about it anyway.

Currently, we're still waiting on our home study completion. It is taking MUCH longer than we thought it would. A couple weeks ago, it was approved at the local office and sent to the China team at the Bethany Global office in Michigan. They had it for about 10 days, then sent it back to the local office for some revisions. I spent some more time answering a few questions and clarifying some things, and I'm assuming that by now the changes have been made and it's been sent back to the China team. We're praying they'll approve it soon so we can get moving onto the next phase.

I also wanted to mention that I'm considering doing a rummage sale fundraiser in late May or early June. So, if you have things laying around the house that you just want to get rid of, but you don't want to mess with doing a rummage sale yourself, I'd love to take them off your hands. If you'd be willing to donate items (clothing, kitchen equipment, furniture, etc.) please let me know and I'll make a note to contact you when I get everything organized. All you'd have to do is drop off your items, I'd take care of everything else, and all the proceeds would go toward our adoption fund.

One last thing; my uber-techy husband convinced me that I need to step into the Twitter world, so if you're the tweeting type, you can find me @outsidethesbbox. Kinda stinks I couldn't fit my whole name on there, but you get the idea, right? Twitter and I are still getting acquainted, but I'm hoping to become proficient soon. :)
