"So, how are things going with the adoption?"

It has been THREE months since I last updated. How is that possible?! I don't know about everyone else, but this summer has flown by for me! I'm not even sure where it went. And, now the girls are back in school. 7th grade and Kindergarten. I just can't believe it. Sigh.

"So, how are things going with the adoption??" I SO appreciate everyone who asks me that question. However, forgive me if I never really know how to answer it. I just really don't know. We're primarily praying and trying to get to a point where we can financially accept a referral, thus all the fundraising that you're probably already sick of seeing and hearing about by now. Let me say, please do NOT feel any sort of need to support every fundraiser. We're simply trying to do a variety of things so that they might appeal to a variety of people. Don't have the money or just not interested? Then, by all means, please do not participate. Your prayers are truly the most valuable thing to us.

Having said that, here are a few of the things we've been doing:

MICHE PARTIES (on-going)

Join Us in Prayer?

Been super busy trying to save/raise money for our adoption. But, in the midst of all the busyness, I want to stop for a moment and simply ask you to join us in prayer. Please pray that God would supernaturally provide, that we would soon be matched with a child or sibling group, and that we would be able to bring him/them home as soon as possible. The average international adoption is currently taking about 3 years and costing $28,000. Please pray that these mountains would be removed....all for His glory! (Matthew 17:20, John 14:13-14)

We Are The Rescued

*Updated March 9, 2013*

Just want to take a moment to praise God for all He is doing within the church. He is making His desires our own and placing orphans in families.

Around 10 months ago, I took this photo of all the families in our church who were in the process to adopt.........

Since then, 6 of those families have brought their children home!!!

The Borders Family

The Brannin Family

The Graham Family

The Jochim Family

The McDonald Family

The Harston Family

And, 2 are praying that they can bring their girls home very, very soon.....
(Will you please join us in praying?)

The Gant Family

The Mattingly Family

Another precious family brought home a baby girl and just finalized her adoption......

The Cassetty Family

And, another family who has previously adopted is seeking to add #3 and #4, as they transition from foster to adopt.

In order to protect their privacy at this time, we'll call them
The "L" Family

And, yet another family just announced that they have begun the adoption process.......   :)

The Richey Family

And, THAT is just within the church we attend!


Three other families we love have recently answered the call to care for orphans as well......

The "H" Family

This family has one adopted son, has moved from foster to adopt with another, and is fostering yet another.

The Bailey Family

The Sharp Family

God is doing great things! Please join us in prayer as we seek to follow Him wherever He leads.

"It's important to realize that we adopt not because we are rescuers. No. We adopt because we are the rescued." -David Platt

Miche ("Mee-chee") Handbags

Just joined Miche--an amazing handbag company--and can't wait to get started selling their super cute and stylish interchangeable bags! While we are in the process to adopt, 100% of my profits will go directly into our adoption fund. I'm thinking this will for sure add some FUN to our FUNdraising! Interested in ordering, booking a party, or joining my team? Just click on the link below! :)
