Aaron and I have talked a lot about fundraising and writing support letters and so far we just haven't felt really comfortable with it. I'm not saying that I disagree with people who decide to do fundraisers, I honestly just think that Aaron and I NEEDED to get our butts in gear and learn some financial discipline! Ha! We have an amazing support system (I'm talking about our parents, both sets!) And every time we had a new idea they were there to "help us out"... house, car, debt, music... I probably shouldn't be telling you all this, but I want you to know our thought process and how far we've come. When we let our family know that we were going to start paperwork, there was just sort of this understanding, not something we had to talk about, we just sort of knew that we had to figure this out on our own! And I'm so glad because in the past six or seven months, Aaron and I have been able to come together and set goals, and make changes, and work overtime!
We've also had to learn to rely on God when our efforts fail us. Receiving these gifts from you just feels like a big pat on the back for all we've done to get this far :)
