Adoption Update and Auction

Just a quick adoption update. . . On Wednesday we received a letter from the Arizona Court's stating that our application for Certification to Adopt was filed on 11/21/14. Yay!

It can't be approved yet because all of our requirements haven't quite been met, but we are quickly working away at what little we have left. 

It's not huge news to report, but it is SO exciting to see our name on a legal document with the words Adoption attached to it :)

The other day I wrote about the amazing girls over at Raising Up One, and all they are doing to help adoptive families raise funds. We seriously can't tell you how blessed we are to be their featured family of the month

This week they are holding an Insta-auction on our behalf. We have literally been blown away by the amount of support and donations we've received already. Our friends, family, and the adoptive community we've met on ETSY, are nothing less but, incredible!

The auction is only going to last for 26 hours on Instagram, so we are asking that you help us spread the word like crazy!! The more we can get it out there, the better chance we have at raising funds.


  • When:  Begins, December 9th at 6pm -- Ends, December 10th at 8pm {MST}
  • Where: @raisingup1 on Instagram
  • Purpose: To help us raise funds to bring home our little one through adoption.
  • Details: Auction Items will only be available for shipping within the U.S.

So far, over 35+ items have been donated. The pictures below are just a sample of some of the fun things that we are going to have available!!


Thank you so much for your support. . . even if you can't bid on any items, just helping us spread the word means so much to us!
