First of all, I don't know what is wrong with my thermometer, but it should say that my goal is $20,000, and that I have so far raised about $10,100...I don't know what it's issue is, but I will work on it!
Second...I thought that I had to update my home study for my USCIS renewal...turns out, I need a whole new home study!! $700. My home study agency is very good to me...normally they would have charged $1400, but they gave me a discount. I am eternally grateful. But it needs to be in to the USCIS people by February 9...they promise me that we can do it!! They are really good to me, and I believe it will happen.
I am really hoping my sister can accompany me on the trip...she is nervous about flying, but would love the opportunity to visit a foreign country. Our only obstacle will be if we can afford a ticket for her.
I do have a Facebook auction at which you will hopefully take a look. I appreciate all bids, and I have some great items without bids!!
I appreciate all who have donated, prayed, and sent good thoughts our way. I am so looking forward to bringing my little Violet home...and once again, when my FSP reaches $12,500, I will reveal her new name!!
