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??

Today our little thermometer on the right sidebar has made a HUGE leap:)!!! Yipppeee JESUS, we got a GRANT!

So thankful and humbled to be chosen! THANK YOU Show Hope! You totally ROCK!:)

But we still have a little ways to go.....

SOOOO....don't forget we have a coffee fundraiser going on. Just click on the link in the left sidebar to go to our page at Just Love Coffee!

Or... you can click on this link to go to our page at Olive Tree Promise: http://alexanderfamily.olivetreepromise.com/families/profile.aspx/24/richardfamily/

They have really cool stuff and are a wonderful organization that helps adoptive families raise the funds to bring home their little ones!:)

OR, if you want to make a cash donation, you can click on the ChipIn button on the right as well.

We ask you to pray, first and foremost....and if the Lord leads you to give then give! Thank you so much!

We're hoping to use our tax refund to pay for travel costs...and hopefully we'll have a baby by then;)!

Every little bit helps!


  1. awesome news! I will buy some coffee from you!

  2. Congrats on the grant! Thanks for you comment! Yes, the embassy is being picky about things. Talked to Sheila and she said they are even to the point of checking spelling. Crazy if you ask me, but hopefully this is our only problem! Anxious to follow your journey!
