Thank You!

Our first Be the Change t-shirt campaign raised $1141, thanks to YOU!

The campaign closed at 11 p.m. September 24, and your shirts will be shipped within 2 weeks!  We'd love for you to send us a picture of you wearing your new tee!  

As for where we are in the adoption process, our home study will be finalized this week, and we will submit our USCIS application.  We've been doing paper work at breakneck speed because:
1. our treasure's file was going back to China
2. our USCIS clearance expires next month
3. we get to re-use our dossier

For those reasons we are fundraising like crazy.  We fully trust that God has a plan to provide every dollar we need to get our little guy home soon.

Change begins with us!

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
John 14:18

Change Begins With Us

Our hearts beat for children who have little to no hope without the love of a family, and no hope whatsoever without Christ.

14 years ago we surrendered our lives to the Lord.  All we are, all we have, all our days we surrendered.  

We didn't know exactly what that would look like, but we've pursued the desires He's placed in our hearts.

One of those pursuits is orphan care in terms of ministering to prospective and adoptive families, and adoption itself.

The Lord often stirs us to move and even draws us to a specific child at the most inopportune times.  In view of circumstances, resources and abilities, it seems illogical at best.  But in view of Scripture, it is a simple act of obedience in response to a command to love.

It is with much joy that we announce our newest treasure.  We are so privileged to be a small part of God's redemptive plan for his precious life.

We treasure your prayers throughout the journey to bring him home.

As with many times before, we are totally relying on God's provision for the adoption costs.  Introducing our first "Change Begins With Us" fundraiser~

These uber-cool tees come in unisex and women's slim fit, and are only $18 and $20 respectively.  
There are only 4 days left to get yours.

To HIM be all glory!

So Much News...

I'm excited to say that I am officially a wedding planner!  For my oldest girl, that is!  We have an engagement, folks, and even with all of my uncrafty-ness and non-creativity-ness, I get to be mother of the bride!

The plans are coming together, thanks to much help.  Her daddy and I are thrilled, but wait till the wedding day, and you'll see a grown man cry for sure!

Kasidi Joy is finished with serial casting, and she rocked it, as always!

Khloie has matured by leaps and bounds since starting school!  Seriously, I can't believe her language development!

Kohlby's six-month-home anniversary is coming up, and he's the busy bee that keeps us hopping.

And then there's this news!

And if you'd like to sport an awesome tee for a great cause, you've got 9 days to grab one of these!

Stay tuned for the rest of the story...
