Well, it's that time where I need to update everyone with where we are at in our journey to Porter!  Yesterday we spent four hours with our social worker as she gathered information about our family so that she could complete our home study.  Once we have our finalized copy of our home study report, we can send our application in to USCIS for immigration approval.  Once we receive our USCIS approval, we will be sending the rest of our certified documents over to Porter's country for approval.

It is hard to believe that it has only been two months since we first saw Porter's face and fell in love.  It has been a whirlwind of a summer for sure!  I created a new tab "Adoption Costs" to show what we have been up to and the costs related to Porter's adoption.  We are nearly have way to our funding goal.  HOW INCREDIBLE IS THAT?!

Now that we are nearing the end of paper chasing, we really need to raise the remaining funds quickly.  We may only have 3 months left to fundraise before we leave to rescue our little man.  Please share Porter's story and help us get him home!


  1. I've been following your adoption story here recently and I would really like to help you get closer to your adoption. I have a soft spot in my heart for Downs Syndrome kids and special needs kids. I am a Tupperware consultant and Tupperware has a very generous Fundraising program. I have recently hosted 2 of these Fundraisers for other families adopting and they have done well. I would love to host one for your family and help you get closer to what you need for your adoption.

    Fundraisers Receive:

    40% of the online sales totals. Tupperware will issue you one check within 2 weeks after the fundraiser closes.

    Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to see if I can answer them. If you would like to set up an adoption fundraiser, just email me and let's see how much we can raise for y'all!! I'll be happy to put you in touch with the other 2 families I've worked with and answer any questions you might have.

  2. Thank you Susan. I will get an email to you!
