2011 Memorial Day Weekend

I <3 Adoption shirts!

We had a church cookout on Sunday to celebrate Memorial Day.  It was a lot of fun and we had such a great time advertising our I <3 Adoption shirts!  Thank you to everyone that has purchased one or multiple!  I have sold almost all that I initially ordered and I am placing another order today!  God has been very faithful to us in this adventure!  We appreciate everyone who has supported us and we would covet your prayers!

Blessings!

Soul Surfer

Jeremy, Kennedy, and I went and saw this movie last night. We highly recommend it!! What a great witness for the Lord Bethany Hamilton and her family are!! We all enjoyed it so much, you need to make plans to see it while it’s still in theaters. We want to support what other Christians are doing!!
Blessings!!

If you’ll notice, we have added a money thermometer to our site, so now you can watch as our funds grow!!  Or you can be a part and donate to our worthy cause!!  🙂

I will be ordering the coolest t-shirts ever this week!  They will say on the front I <3 Adoption and on the back www.mission4mollie.com.  We are so excited!!  We are going to sell them for $15 and all funds will be put into bringing Mollie home!!  If you’d like to have one, let me know!  I’ll have adult and children’s sizes!

Missing my Mom……

My Mom holding Taylor just after he was born, Oct. 14, 1997

With Mother’s Day on Sunday and everyone on Facebook changing their profile picture to a picture of their mom, it makes me kinda sad.  I lost my Mom June 15, 2001.  She died very suddenly from a brain aneurysm, she was just 46 years old.  Jeremy and I lived in Oklahoma at the time but were on a missions trip to the country of Peru.  I was literally the closest (in distance) relative she had and when she died I was the farthest away.  I still don’t understand why God allowed that, but I have to believe it was His divine plan.  A plan I did not ever think would happen and still a plan that is painful. 

Especially now….Mother’s Day.  My mom LOVED her grandkids!  It was like her whole life was meant to be lived to be a Grandma!!  She only had close to 4 years with Taylor, 2 1/2 years with Kennedy, and just a little over a year with my niece Olivia.  She never met Olivia’s sister Ella and she’ll never meet Mollie. 

I’m very sorry for this and I know my sister is as well.  Ella’s middle name is Gayle, she is named after our mom, Deborah Gayle Turney Hoffman.

So in honor of my precious mother whose life was cut too short on this earth, I am posting her picture on today’s blog.  You are dearly loved and deeply missed.

Applebee’s Fund-Raiser

Applebee's Fund-Raiser

Applebee's Fund-Raiser Tue, May 3rd and Thur, May 5th

So you know how I said on my last blog that we made $950 at our Pancake Supper, well we had some very generous donations come in yesterday from our church family that could not make it to the supper!  Our new grand total that we raised is $1,030!!  I just keep going back in my mind to how faithful God is!  Why do I doubt Him? 

Applebee’s is sponsoring our next two fund-raisers and they are being held all day Tuesday, May 3 and Thursday, May 5.  They are giving us 15% of the total amount of their patrons food bill who take in a flyer with Mission4Mollie on it!  We are so appreciative of Applebee’s and their generous efforts to us!  I am hoping between the Pancake Supper and these two (2) days at Applebee’s, I will have enough for the remainder of our home study cost of $1,350, the I-800A document which is $820, and our fingerprinting fee which is $170. 

Pray with me for God to abundantly bless Applebee’s and for their business to be booming this week!!

Blessings!!
