Getting to Know Christi

Christi is a very dominant, strong-willed person.  She likes things to be in perfect condition and likes structure.  She shows a strong front, but behind this front she is a soft, caring person who is very sensitive.  She doesn’t like to fail, and works hard to accomplish any challenge thrown at her.  Her soft spot has to do with children and animals; she will fight tooth and nail to protect them.  Often times you will find Christi being serious, but she can be very goofy, too.  There is usually not a dull moment when Christi is around.  She can be very creative and adventurous, too.

Some of her many interest include the following:

  • Trains

Light at the End of the Tunnel

From:  Thursday, April 13, 2017

We’ve been having a lot going on the past few weeks.  I met up with a friend of ours who is helping us plan our fundraising event.  We have a lot of great ideas, and talking about everything is pretty exciting.  We were put on hold on further planning due to waiting on available dates from the church for us to host this event.  Luckily we just received these dates and can not move forward. This is awesome news for us. We will be meeting with a bank tomorrow to set up an account for the adoption.  Once the account is set up, we can order credit card readers for the fundraising event to help make things easier.  Oh, and to top things off, we reached out to an adoption agency last week! We are anxious to move forward; there is so much to be done.  This is becoming more real, now!

Work has been busy for both of us.  I had a huge deadline at work this week and Jason was asked to work 10hr days.  Yay for overtime pay!  We’ve been in the process of paying down some of our debt, plus of course, saving for our adoption, so every penny from overtime helps.  I won’t bore you with the details, but it has been nice having items being checked off our “to do” list.  We still have so much more to do, but I think we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

We are following Holy Week this week, so things may be a bit quiet around here until after Easter. We have church services tonight (Thursday), tomorrow for Good Friday, and again on Sunday for Easter.  Happy Easter to you all!
