We have been blessed. When I think of the amount of love and support our journey has received, I KNOW that God's hand is in this journey and no matter how hard it is, we will see it through. Today we had a pizza fundraiser at our local Lamppost Pizza. The owner is an amazingly giving man, who generously donated 30% of sales towards our journey. So many of our friends and family came to support us, coworkers, bloggy friends, friends that have only found us from facebook, really amazing and FUN night. And then there is the shoe drive. My friend Edie writes for the Orange County Register and she wrote this article that came out today.
Giving old soles is good for the soulWhat do you do when your dreams are big and your heart even bigger? If you are Fountain Valley couple Stuart and Tracy Jensen, you open up your heart and your home to a beautiful brown-eyed girl who needs a place to call her own.
We already have had amazing support and love from EVERYWHERE. Literally! We have shoes from all over California, and we have shoes coming from all over the United States. People are gathering their shoes, and mailing them to us from as far as Pennsylvania. There is a huge shoe drive in Arizona and someone is bringing them here. People are sending them from Ohio and from Illinois. There are shoes coming from so many places I can't even keep track. And the minute this article came out, I started receiving emails from people. It's so amazing and wonderful to see people come together to bring our sweet girl home. I see His hand in all of this.
We are working hard to finish our paperwork for our homestudy, and the social worker is coming next Saturday. Things are moving forward...we are getting very busy. We appreciate everyone...every single person who prays for us, donates shoes, money, or buys a raffle ticket. We appreciate all who have bought a cupcake or a pizza slice. We appreciate ALL of God's angels....we know our angel will be here with us soon. I can't wait to share pictures of Sofi with all of you. Her journey is your journey. You are all a part of her story. I will write it....you will all be in it. She will know how many people love her. Thank you. We have no words that can say how much thanks we have.
