I want to discuss one of our goals in the future. I passionately want to adopt daughter. Eric is on board with my want and actually said he would like to adopt from Peru. Holding us back, though, is definitely the cost. I made a decision last week that I am going to start saving on my own for our goal. My special adoption fund. Last week I managed to save $150. I know its not much, but its a beginning. I plan on putting any extra money I lay my hands on in this fund. This will include any pet sitting, surveys, rebates, gifts, and hopefully another garage sale this spring. I also want to check about selling some of the boy's clothes on consignment. I hopefully can make more money doing this then the quarters you get at garage sales. I also am trying to pay off our debt and save money on our everyday costs. This is proving difficult with food costs these days. The fact that the boys eat gluten free is also another expense. I think if we seriously buckle down and work at this, we can do it.
