Our Journey

This blog is a small peek inside our family's first adventure into the world of adoption. We welcome your encouragement & financial support, but most importantly we appreciate your prayer covering as we climb the mountains & wander the valleys of this incredibly crazy, yet exciting journey God is leading our family on. We also ask for your prayer covering over our new children, wherever & whoever they are, that they will sense God's loving presence as He snuggles them for us, & for protection from satan's evil schemes toward each of us. Though we may be on opposite sides of the globe, or just a few miles apart, we trust God has already been preparing all of us for each other as our family grows again. May all the Glory in this journey go to our Heavenly Father, who adopted each of us as His own beloved sons & daughters.

Fundraising Has Begun!!

(UPDATE: This donation link above is no longer valid. If you wish to contribute to our adoption fund, please use the Paypal Donation link to the right. Thank you.)

We are beginning our fundraising efforts for the initial expenses of our adoption process, beginning with the homestudy and document gathering/preparation. It's hard to give you a concrete answer as to how much each expense will be, simply because they can vary widely based on each social worker's charges, which documents we will need, how many copies of each, where we have to order them from, etc. We will be documenting these expenses on our blog as they are paid, out of accountability and gratefulness to our adoption fund contributors. We've been told to anticipate approximately $40-45 thousand dollars from beginning to completion of the adoption process of a sibling group from Ukra*ne. We will, of course, be holding a variety of periodic fundraising events, including surprise giveaways, throughout this faith-filled journey. Speaking of giveaways, if you are a business owner/manager who would be willing to donate your services, individual items, or a gift basket we can use to raise funds, we would welcome those too. We will gladly include your contact information in the post promoting your donations. If you have not product, service, or monetary means to help, your prayers are greatly appreciated as well, for it is the faith-filled prayers of the saints that can move mountains more than anything else. Thank you for your generosity and willingness to help us ransom these children from their orphanage life in Ukra*ne so they can come home to a family to call their own. We really appreciate all the support you've already given. We are blessed by your love.
