Oldie but goodie...

I was looking at my old blog and at the pictures of Norah when she first came home. Stumbled upon this video and I had to share!!

Playing catch-up!!


Do ya like my new blog design? Well then meet Big House, Little Room They did an amazing job on my blog with just a little insight from me. They took my ideas and RAN with them and I honestly couldn't be happier!!! Everything was perfect and it took no time at all to get it back!!! THANK YOU for making my blog PERFECT!!!!

We are also a featured family for Wild Olive tee's until December 19th. When you go to Wild Olive Tee's there is a button for Adoption Fundraising. There are 3 amazing shirts to choose from. For each shirt that you buy we get a certain percentage to add to help bring Samuel home! If you want to order, make sure you put our family code: SHARP1119 in the comment section as well as the coupon section so we will get the credit for it!

Things are going well in the Sharp house. Elias is now playing basketball and Norah is still in her dance class. They are both such amazing kids and it is a joy to be their mom!

We sent off our I800 paperwork on the 19th, so the ball is still rolling, just a little slower than we would like... Travel is hopefully going to be Januray or February and we are so excited to bring our little man home!!!!!!

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers and also keep Samuel in those thoughts and prayers as well. His world is getting ready to be turned upside down and changed forever.

Much Love!!

We got our LOA today and we are beyond excited!!! We really didn't expect it for a few more weeks, so we were really shocked! So shocked that I didn't call my mother, my best friend, Nicole, Rene, parents.... I'm sorry :(
I just went into panic mode and thought of the 1001 things that I needed to do! Oh, it's gonna be a long 3 months!!! Thank goodness the holidays are here to take my mind off of things :)

Just wanted to let you all know that our family was chosen to participate in the November adoption fund raising for Hip Mom Jewelry. We actually applied several months ago and just learned that we were accepted! We are so excited to be a part of this program and I am hoping that I will have the "I will Go" necklace under the tree this year.... (hint hint)... Anywhooo...
The website is: http://hipmomjewelry.com/

On the right hand side you will see a tab for "ADOPTION". Once you click on this, there will be several pieces of jewelry to choose from. For every piece of jewelry that is ordered, we will get 30%. Please feel free to share this link with your friends and family too! These would make great Christmas gifts for the loves in your life, and all the while you will be helping to bring Samuel home!

Once you choose the jewelry of your choice, it will ask for the family code. Our code is: SHA1110

Thank you all so much for your continued support in helping us bring Samuel home. We cannot wait to see his face and to have him home for good!

Any questions, please feel free to contact me!!

Much Love,
