Hi all,

If you are following along with us in this puzzle fundraiser, I’m excited to announce that we have reached the halfway point!! Yay! Last night when I went to bed we were literally one piece away, and this morning I woke up to six more. Thank you.

So, here we are at 51%

The picture doesn’t really do it justice- I’ll be sure to have Josh take the finished one with his nice camera rather than my silly little phone, but you can get the gist. Just want to point out what is visible so far. When we created this puzzle, we thought it would be neat to have many special words in the background, sort of to capture this journey, but also to let our child know they are loved and embraced.  Here are the words that we have put together so far:

“The Lord Provides.”     “seen”     “chosen”     “In our hears”    “worth the wait”    “grafted in”     “prayed for”     “brother”     “forever”

Lastly, the bottom phrase says, “From our hearts to our home, many helped our family grow. Each piece special in its own way, bringing the final piece here to stay.”  Yes, perhaps it’s a little bit corny, but it’s true! 🙂

Thanks for being a part of this with us, and stay tuned!

Hi friends,

Just a week and a half in, and we’ve been so encouraged by the gifts, sweet notes, and outpouring of love from this puzzle fundraiser. Honestly, this has been a blessing to our souls. Since returning back from overseas, at times we have struggled with feeling lonely/disconnected, but ever since starting this, it has been so so good to be reminded that we have really incredible friends and family all over the world. It’s been great to hear from and be back in touch with so many people. And how cool is it that every one of these pieces represents one of those people? Pretty amazing really.

So, onto our first progress report:

We are now at a little over 27% of the puzzle (139 pieces sold!) Woohoo!

Here’s a snapshot of where we’re at:

Just as a note, we promise we weren’t trying to be cheesy, but thought it was kinda fun that the first pieces of the puzzle that we were able to put together were the words, “The Lord Provides.”

Stay tuned for the next update & feel free to share with anyone that may be interested.
