Long Distance Love

As I mentioned in a recent post, we have been busy fundraising for Naika's adoption. So far we had a rummage sale and a craft fair/bake sale. Both events went Very well and we were extremely blessed by all who supported us. It got me thinking how much Naika is already loved. She has NO idea that there are so many people who are helping to bring her home and we are FOREVER grateful. Some upcoming events will include a Jockey Person to Person/Tastefully Simple home party (where proceeds will be donated toward the adoption and also a Auction/Raffle event in fall that you will NOT want to miss. One Major need is PRAYER! As you all know (at least anyone who followed our previous adoption journeys) adoption is not for the weak at heart, especially Haiti adoptions. I am already SO in love with this precious little girl that there are days I think my heart will burst. Yet, we still have a L O N G road ahead of us, thus prayers: for Naika and her caregivers, for all involved in the adoption paperwork (in the US and Haiti), for us and the kids who prepare for our new bundle of joy, for a speedy and drama free process. We are So blessed and thankful to be led on this journey, knowing it will not be easy but OH SO WORTH THE RIDE! Be Blessed - Melissa PS -enjoy the pic which shows our little girl getting her first look at her Forever family!!!
