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??

Half-Way There!

We're SO excited!!!!!  God has blessed us through some very generous donors and we are half-way to our goal for TRIP 1!!!!  YIPPPEEEE!  SO very thankful!:)

This weekend, we are having a yard sale to benefit our adoption as well, so PLEASE PRAY that we sell EVERYTHING!!  Hoping to bring in over $1000 with this sale!!:)

On another note...we would love to get a referral THIS WEEK(I mean who wouldn't, right?;))...because this is probably the last week that we could get a referral and still MAYBE get in to court before it closes down for the rainy season(until October).  In addition, my friend who would watch half our "zoo" while we're gone, goes back to work the third week of August, and I really don't want to spread my kids out all over the place if I don't have to.  Uggggh:(! 

Also, school starts for us at the end of August as well, so it would be one less headache if we could get through court BEFORE I start homeschooling again...especially because Ava will be in a traditional Kindergarten setting(so someone would have to get her there and back) and Caleb will be attending preschool in the afternoons....Uggggh:(!

All that said, we KNOW God's got this, and whenever we get a referral, He'll take care of the details.  I just like to have my ducks in a row...and for it NOT to be "messy" I guess;)! 

Keep praying friends, we're almost there!:)
