Nate and I are still looking into options of which way we want to go to get a child/ren. We are thinking of getting a homestudy done and then going to agency's to see if any of the waiting children would be a good match for us in our neighboring states including of coarse our state of WI. We will go for infant to age 9yrs old. We will be doing a couple things to gain money for our journey of adoption.

In June we will be having a family yard sale in Luck, WI and the items that sell that are Nate and mine will go toward adoption. I will also be starting an etsy site and will load things I've knitted and maybe even for you spinners like Nate and I some roving that is dyed by me. If anyone has a request of a knitted item please contact me and we will work out the details. I have LOTS of yarn so this will be fun:-) I also knit dog and cat toys everyone and will be starting to knit dog sweaters for the cold winter and can do dog leashes. I have patterns for cat beds also that can of coarse go for small dogs.

So the main thing is we are NOT giving up.

Fundraiser ideas

Ok, Would love your help with some fundraiser ideas. Since our last adventure went sour we are out a good sum of money:-(......

So right now I have come up with:
setting up an store and selling dyed rovings and spun up yarns plus knitted items.

yard sale and all funds go to our BABY fund.

This is what I have so far. Please comment and help us with more idea's. Hopefully we will have a baby/child by 2011. I know long time off but, if we adopt domestic or over sea's it could take awhile for all that paperwork to go through.
We are also thinking of Foster Care with option to adopt! And seeing if a friend or family member would carry a baby for us but, we would have to gather money as we are going to go for Invetro this time. However we are going to spend the money on seeing IF I even have eggs anymore. We are thinking no but, its worth a shot. If I don't then we may go for donor or see if whomever we have carry would be willing but, We know that is a hard choice for someone to say ok. The sperm would be Nathan's since we know he produces. We bought a special microscope to look and they are fine:-) I know probably TMI~ LOL

I may even set up on here and my craft blog a donation thing where if you chose to donate money to the baby fund you could. no pressure at all. We all know how tuff the economy is right now!!

This blog is changing

Friends and family,
Due to unforseen things we have terminated contracts with our Surrogate. I will not go through the reasons here but, wanted to let you all know. I have changed the blogs sub-title due to this. Nate and I are still on a mission to having our dreams of having child/ren fullfilled and it WILL be done just not the way planned. I will go through some things later on what paths we choose or are looking at. We have 2 very good options already! We may not get a baby right away but, will have at least 1 child. As most know we were planning on adoption before all this mess but, chose to have a baby. Well now we are re-visiting our choice from before. Plus some others:-) So please say some prayers as there is still some rocks in our path.

Much Love,
Nathan and Lisa Anderson

First baby hat! Lets see if this boosts those fertility gods:-) I know Jen has made a couple things that I'm sure she will share on here:-) I have decided, with Jens push, to make some stuff for the baby because I've been driving myself and everyone else nuts looking at the patterns. LOL~~ So I have started on the off times of other projects. Will start the baby blanket when we get a positive sign. So for now it will be hats and clothes that can be for either sex and sex specific as if anything they will make a nice gift! LOL
