IT"S OFFICIAL

~No, we didn't sell our house yet, but we will! What is official is the fact that we are for sure 100% going to adopt from Haiti! We will start to try and save money, and work toward taking care of the home study, fingerprinting, and all the paper work. Do we have a child picked out???? Not officially, but in my heart we do. We will try and raise some money, save some money, beg and borrow some money:) so that by this fall we can make a commitment to this beautiful baby boy. Currently we are trying to ask anyone we know to save their aluminum cans for us. I know this won't bring in a whole lot of money, but some is far better than none! I know the money will come from somewhere. God has a plan and being that we spent all we had for the 2 girls, we will have to completely rely on God's blessings. In addition to saving cans, I have a few other ideas in the works to try and earn money. I will keep everyone posted as we get closer. Right now, we have about $25 of the $15,000 we need. I know this doesn't seem like a very big dent, but I have great peace about this. I know that my God will provide, because we are following his will for our lives! Until I post again, please pray with me that my efforts at coming up with a ton of money will take off like wild flowers!

Sarah, I'm thrilled!! Let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do. I'll ask for some cans for you. God is so faithful. I'm reminded of the scripture in Hebrews about Sara and how she was able to have a son because she judged Him faithful who had promised. God will provide!! Praying for your family as you begin this amazing journey!!
