Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Well here goes!!!! We are officially kicking off our "ADOPTION ADVENTURE"! That's right, we ARE adopting!!!! Even though we have two beautiful biological children, we knew in our hearts that our family was not complete. We have prayed for God to reveal His will to us and after seven years, we are beginning to see our dream come true. It is so amazing how God works things out! Though it is still very early in the process, we have found a special little girl in Ethiopia. It's hard to keep our hearts and emotions in check because we are so excited yet we know this will be a long and potentially rough road. So, having given the backdrop, we need to FUNDRAISE, FUNDRAISE, FUNDRAISE!!!!! Adoption is very expensive and we need your help!!!! The total cost of this process will be about 23K. This cost is all inclusive from the beginning homestudy through bringing the child home. Our immediate need is $3700.00. This money will be to complete our homestudy and pay for the first installment of our agency fee. We have done the math, and if we can get 700 of our friends to give a ONE TIME DONATION OF $20.00, we will have $14,000.00!!!!!!! That would put us at over 60% of our goal! We will also be applying for grants, doing yard sales, and whatever creative things we think of along the way. Please prayerfully consider a one time donation. If you can't do $20.00, we will be grateful for whatever you can give!!!! If you are not in a position to give at all, we absolutely understand and ask that you remember us in prayer. That is just as important. We will update you each week to let you know how we are doing in the process. We are SO excited about this journey and can't wait to meet our new addition!!!!!
