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??

Last Chance!:)

Hi Bloggy friends! This is the last week of our SAFARI FUNdraiser and we have a loooong way to go! But I've learned that no matter what, the Lord has a plan to provide for us...through this fundraiser or NOT!:)

Just a reminder that each piece of the puzzle is $15 and will include your name on the back as a keepsake reminder to our daughter of your help and support in bringing her home!

And in other adoption related matters....we are STILL waiting on the IRS for our adoption refund, so we can send in our dossier for Ethiopia...4 months waiting...but God has a plan(at least I keep telling myself this;)...no, I know He does...it just never seems to line up with mine:)). Also, having to redo a page on the homestudy...oh well, better now than later!:)

I also want to give a shout out to all my followers who are bringing home their kiddos from Bulgaria in the next few SHORT months!! The journey is not over my friends, it is just beginning! ENJOY! You've all been such an encouragement to me, and I want you to know that I haven't forgotten you:).

God Bless!


  1. how about an update on life when you get a chance? Bonding issues, recommendations, how is Ava's language these days, any orphanage behaviours still and any recommendations for me on what to expect, take for the pick up from the orphanage. Thanks. Think of your family often. I wish I could help you financially, but it looks like airline tickets are expensive in July, ouch. hugs,

  2. Love reading the updates on Ava--a year down the road. Glad she is doing well and where you see need for improvements are somewhat minor in the scope of possibilities, PTL. But still frustrating, none the less. She is a beautiful girl who even looks like a gentle soul. Post a pic when you get a chance.
