A New Door Opens

Our original plan was to adopt from Ethiopia, but God had other things planned. He started opening doors for us to look into adopting domestically. We are now working with an agency here in Orlando. The adoption attorney and agency owner is actually our friend's mom. So we know we are in good hands! We are excited to see where this new direction takes us, and so far it looks as though we could have a baby sooner than later. The only thing holding us back, is that we do not have the full amount of funds needed to complete the adoption. We have faith the finances will be put in place when it is the right child for us! God does everything at just the right time.....Thank you for your continued prayers and support!

Downtown Yard Sale

We had another successful yard sale at my brother and sister-in-law's house on Saturday Feb.21! We made another $1,000 to add to our adoption fund! Thank you to all the families who donated items, making the yard sale much larger than normal! We are blessed with friends and family who continue to support us in many ways through tis journey! A special thanks to Aaron and Kathleen, for having it at their house and putting in a lot of time to get it set up. Our dear friend Yvette was there to help and keep us all organized and sane! Bob and Donna Dumaine helped us move everything from our house to my brother's all in one night in a big trailer. We wouldn't have had the time to get all set up, without their help too Thanks everyone, we love you!
