I know that our adoption of these two beautiful children is without a doubt God's will. All the doors along this journey have opened at just the right time. Prayers have been answered and every hurdle has been successfully jumped. We know that the devil will TRY throw obstacles into our path but it is so awesome to be victorious in spite of his efforts to defeat us.

Just a shout out to Mrs. G and Auntie T...thank you so much for your efforts to get the word out about our adoption. There are so many people we have not yet reached and because of your time and energy we have received even more support.

We are so grateful to all those who have come forward to help us in our fundraising efforts.
Please continue to pray that this process will move quickly and smoothly.

God is Good!!

We just started our letter campaign 3 days ago and have sent out only a fraction of the letters we are planning to send. We have been praying that God would show us the way to pay the USCIS fees because we will be filing our I-800A this week. Some dear friends of ours sent us a sweet letter and a check for an extremely generous amount of money. We were so brought us to tears. Now we can pay USCIS fees ($975.00) and we have a large portion of the money needed before our first trip. It is amazing how God comes rushing in just in time.........every time!!
We are so grateful for God's blessing of such wonderful friends. We know they will be so blessed for this gift and we want them to know that they have been a great blessing and example to us!!
