P.s. If you need any help matching foundations or have any questions please let me know. I will gladly help in any way I can!

So close!!

Well we are now OFFICIALLY #1 on the waiting list! The next matches will be out in June so God willing we will finally know who our sweet baby is. It has now been 2 years since we started the process and we have had several ups and downs. But through it  all God has revealed  his love to us through acts of kindness and encouraging words from family and friends. We have been busting at the seams with with amazing friends and family that God has graciously blessed us with. Please continue to pray for our family as we still have some waiting to do and that God prepares our hearts for our sweet little one in Thailand. Blessings to you all!

Moving up!

Adoption update : We have now been moved up to #7 on the waiting list! We should be matched around March or June of next year. We are so excited to be getting closer. God has blessed us so much financially but we still have a ways to go! When we are matched we need to $9500 (We have about half of this so far)for the Thai government then around 6 months later we will need around $5000 for travel expenses. There are many ways to help if you are willing!

#1 We are always in need of prayer! -For our expected child, patience and wisdom for all those involved in this process.
#2 Purchasing Uganda beads or Haitian earrings! These make great Christmas gifts!!Half of the proceeds will go toward our adoption!
#3 Providing financial support when it is time to travel, This can be a monetary donation or giving us your frequent flyer miles at no cost to you!

Please continue to pray for our family and for our sweet child overseas. God Bless!

 As things are now it looks like we may be matched in December at which point we will have to pay the Thai government $9500. 6 months later we will then travel which will be around $5000. We have been able to save and raise a lot but still have a long way to go any little bit helps!
