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??

Thou Shalt NOT Worry.....:)

No referral this week..maybe next week. They are working on "many" childrens' paperwork as I write this!:)

So far all four of our fundraisers have been ummm, shall we say, ineffective...meaning nothing has been donated so far(although I don't receive word from Just Love Coffee until a check comes in the mail:)). We are bummed...not because of the money...we know God can provide in whatever way he sees fit...but it does SEEM we're kind of...alone...

Friends, we NEED you..not your money...YOU! We need to know your lifting us up in prayer, storming heaven for us! We need to know that when we bring our daughter home, you will STILL ask about us, pray for us, etc....NOT alone...

Just let us know you're out there;)!

Here's hoping next week brings us an early Christmas gift!:)

*EDIT: Thank you so much for your prayers! PLEASE do NOT feel as though I'm pressuring you to give! It's been simply wonderful to know my bloggy friends are PRAYING...!:)


  1. I wish I could ease your financial burden but I can pray. I can storm heaven for you. I don't know you but that doesn't matter. I am praying now that God will supply you with ALL that you need to get your daughter.

  2. I've got your back Renae, I am saying prayers for your family tonight!!

  3. I sat in the car the last couple days in the midst of a mad dash for the last funds for Jael...thinking of you....wishing extra would appear so we could share with you. Hugs, love, and prayers....

  4. December is a tight month financially for many I am sure. I will pray for you Renea and that God will provide it all. The little we have left over this month we are donating to help Calvin's orphanage director to have brain surgery. Wish we had a money tree :) hugs

  5. I am a terrible friend! I am so sorry! PLEASE dont' feel alone, or abandoned... I am not close by, but you are in my prayers and on my mind often!

    Your heart for the orphan is so very apparent in your words and actions. God DOES indeed have this, and the money will come. He will impress upon hearts to give! He will give it to you so that you may bring your little girl home and into your family. She will no longer be lonely, she will not grow up an orphan!

  6. You are definitely in our prayers. I try to everytime I check a blog, I say a prayer for the family. It's kind of my weird little prayer list! I am excited for your referral to come in His time!
