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??

Evan is Coming HOME!!! - Praise HIS Name!!
Sweet baby girl Evan is coming home!!

Shouts of praise to Almighty God echo around the world....

the exact same Judge who just two weeks ago said,

Kirill could NOT come home because he is "not socially adaptable" due to his "medical condition" {having Down Syndrome} and that he is better off in an institution than in a home with a family,

granted Evan's mommy and daddy permission to bring her home!!


They work!!

If you prayed {and fasted} then YOU are part of this miracle!!

How cool is that?

He is our






Only the miraculous power of God could turn the heart of that Judge in just two weeks....


We continue to pray and ask God to move.

Kirill's mom and dad have filed an appeal...and as they understand it, it is possible for the Judge to overturn her own ruling...

Pray hard!

Evan's coming home

and there is NO DOUBT that Kirill will come home too.


Ya' know how I know?

From our own personal experience....

When Ch*na gave us pre-approval for Isaiah and then a few months later, changed their mind and said, "Absolutely NOT - NO WAY - you cannot adopt him"....{because they thought we were trying to slip something by them even though we had completely revealed everything, it was merely an oversight by our agency}....

We were told by our agency, 'sorry'.

We begged them to appeal.

They told us there was not an appeal process with Ch*na.

But our home study agency {different than the one that held his file} said,

"Tell your agency to try an appeal anyway"

They finally agreed.

And people around the world prayed and fasted with us.....

Asking God Almighty to move an entire Commun*st Goverment...

TEN and a half long weeks passed without a single word....

while our appeal sat in Ch*na...

We were told as we waited....

"Ch*na NEVER, EVER, EVER changes their mind...."

and somewhere in that 10-1/2 weeks the Lord spoke this verse to me:

"The Lord will lay bare his holy arm
in the sight of all the nations,
and all the ends of the earth will see
the salvation of our GOD."
Isaiah 52:10

By the way...
Ya' know what Isaiah means?

"salvation by God" {perfect, right?}

and as we waited, we were in a prayer time with our friend, Benjie,
{who at the time was our worship pastor}
Benjie prayed this verse about the seemingly horrible out-of-control situation...

"God is not a man, that he should lie,
nor a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?"
Numbers 23:19

When the Lord leads us through trying circumstances and we see God part the Red Sea, it completely prepares us for the next "Red Sea"....

so it is with expectancy that I can confidently say,

Our God will not allow Kirill to live in an institution...

He will rescue.

He is always faithful.

Evan's coming home


Kirill -
you precious treasure
