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??

What would an adoption be without "Urgent Prayer Requests"!

We found out today that one of our sources of income is now gone....that's a little over $4000 per year....this puts us at or a little below what we would need to qualify for international adoption by USCIS guidelines. I'll know more later today.... Our homestudy update won't be finished until we get our child abuse clearances back, which should be anytime now, so we have time....it just has to be completed by Feb. 12th, or it "expires"...

We're not happy folks, this is a great test of our faith....

We desperately need your prayers that this would be "made up" somehow in other ways/areas or this adoption will not happen.

At this point, we really feel like this is an attack rather than a closed door, so we are fasting and praying for the Lord to intervene and display his might and power!!!!

I know that the enemy of our souls DOES NOT want this to happen....BUT GOD!!!!

Please pray that the enemy would be bound, that his mouth would be shut(as he is filling my mind with doubts and lies!!), and that the LORD would show himself Mighty To Save as only HE can!!!

Thanks to you all!


  1. praying big time!!! (((HUGS))) Adoptions are sure never dull are they? UGH!

  2. sorry to hear! Will pray for you today. hugs

  3. Praying for your family. Satan sure does like to attack those who are seeking to bring orphans into their family - and especially those who will introduce the child to Christ! I pray for your family, for the child that is yours and for God's will in this situation!
