We are so excited to share our Ethiopian adoption adventure, and our CRAZY lives with all of you! Our hope is that it will encourage you to step out in faith to do what God has called you to do! There are FIELDS of fatherless children waiting for someone to care for them, to love them, to tell them of JESUS' love for them...will YOU be the one??

I've been putting off posting this, but Wednesday morning, while we all lay sleeping...little Chrissie Patterson went home to be with Jesus. I can't tell you how much I've cried over this little girl in the past month!! I felt like I knew her and her family though we only met through the blog world...I felt their amazing love for this little girl, and I can't IMAGINE their loss!! They are planning to have a live link to the going home celebration(no funeral here:)) for all of us who followed and prayed while Chrissie was in the PICU...feel free to go to their website for further details. It's www.allarepreciousinhissight.blogspot.com
Will you please continue to pray for her family? Chrissie did NOT die an orphan..she did NOT die alone, without a Mommy and Daddy...her heart is now completely healed and she is running and dancing with Jesus(the two things she wanted to do most here!)
Also, I replaced her button with a Reece's Rainbow button...she was listed on this sight prior to her adoption and they helped give her a FAMILY. What a tribute to Chrissie it would be if you would go to the website and sponsor a child for adoption...or better yet, consider one of the HUNDREDS of children listed there for adoption into your family:).
