What are you THINKING???!!!!

Well, yes, we've gotten asked this quite alot in the past and I'm sure soon to be here in the future. You see, we are again.....adopting! You read that right...adopting. For several months now God has really been moving on our hearts. We have clearly heard His call and we are walking in obedience to that. There is no other place I would rather be than on the path He has called us to walk. After all, look at what obedience has gotten us in the past....a beautiful family!! So...the juicy details are......we are "in process" to adopt from here in the US, any child God directs us to. We specifically feel called to adopt "the least of these" and are excited to see what God has in store for our family! This is all new to us since we have always done international adoptions. We are feeling all those wonderful emotions you feel when you are standing on the edge of a cliff and looking down. Because honestly, this obedience thing is not for the weak of heart. LOL! We would so appreciate your prayers as we live this adventure again. Adoption is not for everyone, but God does call everyone to participate in some way. We have been incredibly blessed with prayers, financial support, gifts, clothing, and toys through our last adoptions. It has made a HUGE difference for us! Honestly, each adoption is a "God Thing". We don't have the money. He causes the finances to be there when needed. He does like the "sweat factor "though. You know, when the $$ is due and you start to sweat because you don't have it and you feel like there isn't one more drop of sweat left in your body and voila! He sends it just in time. WHEW! So, we are adding a fundraising thermometer to our blog to help "see" how each little bit adds up! If you would like to financially contribute to helping us make a home for another of God's precious orphans, you may contribute here online thru Paypal. Please know how very much we appreciate your love, support and prayers, but most importantly know how much this child will someday appreciate it even more!
