Moving Forward

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

This has definitely been a time of seeking for our family. We desperately want to make the right decisions in regards to this adoption. As I stated in my last post we had talked to our agency about switching to Ethiopia.  Claire, our representative, got back with us last week and our change has been approved! Thank you Jesus!  They are in the process of reworking our contract because some fees have changed, but I know God will provide exactly what we need. He has so far so why would he stop now?  

Other exciting news is we got our passports in the mail a couple of days ago.  We look like the saddest people on the planet in our pictures. When we went to get the pictures made for the passports I even made the little girl at Walgreen's redo mine and that did not even help LOL!  We look more like we are getting mugshots done instead of getting ready to leave the country to adopt a beautiful child from Africa.  I am not really sure why they do not want you to show teeth or smile in these pictures. At least they are done and that means we are one step closer to getting our little one!

A Piece of the Puzzle

Precious in His Sight  

Hello all! Just wanted to let you know what we are doing right now.  This is not only a fundraiser but will also be a cherished reminder of all those that help to bring our child home. I chose this puzzle because we are ALL precious in His sight! 

Okay here is how it works... We are selling each piece of the puzzle for $5.00 each. On the back of the piece of puzzle you purchase will be your name and you can even put the state you are from.  When we sell all the pieces of the puzzle, we will glue it together and put it in a shadow box, so the names will be visible of all who have contributed in bringing our child home. If you want to be a piece of the puzzle please leave me an email address in the comment section and I will respond as to where to send the money.

The puzzle pieces on the table are ones that have been purchased and the pieces in the bag are what is left. If you look real close at the puzzle piece on the right, you can see my youngest daughter's name. She had money she had earned from chores and wanted to buy her own pieces to the puzzle. She is too sweet!

When all the pieces are bought I will put a picture of this masterpiece on for all to see! Thanks for your support and prayers!
