Pasta Dinner Fundraiser for Baby Caleb!

This past Friday night we had a pasta dinner fundraiser for baby Caleb! It was a great evening- not only was the food DELICIOUS, but we had a wonderful guest speaker and we were able to inform our audience about adoption and Ethiopia. This evening would not have been possible without our parents, who worked tirelessly to prepare the food, and if the church had not been willing to let us use their facility- we are very grateful!
(the kitchen was quite a mess, as you can see)

We raised right around $2000 which is a huge praise!!!! It is amazing, but we are so close to our goal! This can only be attributed to our amazing God, whose faithfulness reaches to the skies (Psalm 36:5)! When we started this process over 5 months ago, $20,000 seemed like quite an insurmountable amount of money, but I am reminded now that nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37)! May he receive all the glory for moving in the lives of others to support our journey to our son.

(Like always, I forgot take pictures while the event was actually taking place, so all I had were some pics of after it was all over.....)

Wow! The Lord is faithful...He always provides! And sounds like He has provided wonderful grandparents to Caleb as well. :)
