We need to miraculously come up with several thousand dollars very soon! I say miraculously because we do not have the resources to do this on our own. We need God's help & your help.

A little girl who is waiting for a family has captured our hearts. We weren't sure if this was the right path, but after MUCH prayer we are sure in our decision. It has been a few months since we first saw her picture & we cannot stop thinking about her. We asked God that if we were not the right family for her to take the desire away, but He has not. We expect to get official approval in the next couple of days & when that happens I will post pictures right away!

It is our prayer that if you have been touched by our adoption journey or have a heart for the orphaned child that you will prayerfully consider making a donation in any amount. Gifts can be sent to Pioneer Bank or given electronically. You can find information for both on the right column.

If you are unable to give a monetary gift we ask that you please lift our family up in prayer as we work diligently to complete our calling. Not everyone is called to adopt, but we humbly ask you to come along side of us financially if you are able. Blessings...

...I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
Matthew 17:20

Your sweet girl will be so blessed to have such a wonderful family!

I'm praying that God will provide you with every penny you need to bring your sweetie home!

I am praying even right now as I type!

Just out of curiousity, is there a particular reason that you set up a fund directly at your bank for this? We just sent out a letter of support to close friends and family for our own adoption and we have just been putting it into a savings account that we started for our girl and adoption expenses. I'm just wondering if there's another way that's safer or more legal???

Praying in the meantime!

Thank you ALL for your prayers! They are priceless to us.

We too sent out a letter of support to friends & family with very little response. We set up a fund at the bank so the people who didn't know us well but still wanted to contribute might feel a little more at ease giving directly to an adoption fund. We have received more gifts from casual acquaintances & complete strangers than anyone else.

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed for your support. Thank you for opening your hearts to us & our future daughter.
