Money and adoption....

Well, God has shown up big time!!
We were called by our agency this week to say that they had
a donation in Jack's honor.  The donation was anonymous and in the amount of 5,000.00.

Let me just say--- This was ON TIME.
We were struggling to find the last 1300.00 for the next fee.
The dossier would not be sent if the fee was not paid.
Our dossier arrived to our agency the SAME DAY they called us with the news.

MONEY---  many many people let the money stop them from adopting.
I believe in being cautious and knowing limits with finances BUT
I have to say that we have never let money stop us from adopting and God has shown His face every time by providing.
I know there are other families out there that can testify to this. 

God will provide if you answer His call to adopt.

We had sown a seed with another adopting family---donating money that was sacrifical to us.
Then, when we needed to make a payment we didn't have it.  I just feel God has honored our giving
with this large donation to Jack's adoption. 

I just want God to recieve all praise and glory for His provision!

Also- I want to call your attention to another young man that has captured my heart.
He is listed with WACAP and is 8 yrs old.  There is a 14,200.00 grant for his adoption as well as the
possibility of a fee waiver!  Go to and look under waiting children
His ID is ZMY.0203.01
You can search for Asia male 7-8 yrs old.... special need is repaired spina bifida
If we could bring home three--this young man would be coming to our house....
but alas two is the limit....

Blessings to you all--

Genesis 26:12

Amplified Bible (AMP)
12Then Isaac sowed seed in that land and received in the
same year a hundred times as much as he had planted,
and the Lord favored him with blessings.

The next FEE - the next chip-in

Well, we received our bill today from WACAP for $2,210.00.
 This is after $2800.00 of Jack's grant was applied.  It is due in thirty days.
I had been praying that Elijah's Reece's Rainbow money would be available but they
do not disperse the grant until travel arrangements are made.
SO, here I am again---asking and praying for help and hoping you will enter the drawing for the
Vera Bradley purses.((click here))  They arrived last week and I took some photos to show you.
There are actually 13 purses and a wallet.  TEN are been drawn for from this blog.
We are also holding a drawing( for the extra three purses) at
our "carnival" fundraiser (its in two weeks)
 See the purses below:

Thank you all so much for your continued prayer and support of our adoptions!

We are bursting with excitement to go get our boys!
Here are two recent photos of Jack :
