Football Fundraiser & other news!

Here is our latest fundraiser.  It's fun, easy and affordable! One square is only $5! Here's how Michael explains it:

Help support our adoption by participating in a Super Bowl Square Pool!!! Here are the rules:
We are betting on the last number of each score. For example, if you think the game will be tied at 21-21 you'd buy box 1-1. Or, if you think it will be 49ers 28, Ravens 21 you'd buy box 8-1.
Squares are $5 each.
Winner of game final score will get 30% (If all squares sell that's $150)
Winners of 1st, 2nd & 3rd quarter scores will get 5% ( If all squares sell that's $25 each)
All money is due by Thursday, Jan. 30th (but earlier is better!) All unpaid squares will be re-released.
Here is the most up to date spread sheet!

Feel free to pass this along to others who might be interested.  Even if you don't live close, you can still participate and just send us the money.
In other news... We rescheduled our meeting with Beth for Wednesday.  She said this is the last meeting where she gathers more information, and that it will be primarily about our marriage.  I'm not nervous for this one at all! She said after this meeting we have the final meeting after she has written up our home study, and that at the final meeting she just goes over what she wrote!  We are moving right along. 
Over the next couple weeks I plan to work on our parent portfolio (the book given to the birthmoms when they are making some tough decisions) and to get the ball rolling with the nursery! Both of those tasks sound quite appealing :)   We had some big car troubles last night (as in, my car can no longer be driven) so we are waiting to see the cost of fixing that before we move on to the nursery.
The final thought that has been on my mind, is our future birthmom.  Although we don't know her yet, I just ask that people start praying for her.  Whether she is pregnant yet or not, I can't imagine being in her shoes.  When I stop and think about what a self-less act it will be in giving us her own biological flesh and blood, I am overwhelmed with respect and admiration.  Whoever and wherever she is, I am praying for her, since she will significantly change our lives.
Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for the continued support! 
Sara & Michael
