You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Lena's (first) mission trip to
Haiti turned into our
Adoption Adventure!
Can't wait to see what God has in store next.....

Wednesday, October 28, 2009


I just rec'd notification that we have an appointment scheduled during our planned November trip for the newly added step of signing papers that confirm we want to adopt the boys in front of a judge/justice of the peace. Thankful that we can get it done on this trip. Praying we get it done on this trip.

We are still fund-raising....God is so good. So gracious. Such an amazing provider. It's mind-blowing to see Him work and to know HE CARES about what's going on with us, the details. I am constantly reminded of his love. It's awesome.

If you are shopping at all or plan to be, please use this link-we'll get a earn a small percentage of your order.

We have a few items we kept back from the garage sale (a HUGE success!) that we plan to list on craigslist. I also have a few things to take to a sporting goods resale shop in the area. And I have one high ticket item to list on ebay.

Oh, and fellow adoptive parents are coming to town to do a "Pictures in the Park" fundraiser for us. The dad is a professional photographer and takes AMAZING pictures. It will be at the end of January. LOCAL PEEPS: you do NOT want to miss this! More details to follow.

We are also planning another exciting event (FUN) for sometime in early 2010. I'll let you know more as we figure it all out.

And we still have our (mostly) handmade jewelry blog/auction going on....check it out here.

If you feel led to make a donation you can do it via paypal. Look for the gold "Donate" button on the left side of this page.

We are about 20 days from our planned arrival in Haiti and hugging our sons!

Your prayer support is ALWAYS appreciated and needed.

God is great.

Life is good.

I am thankful.


  1. So exciting that your trip is fast approaching. God IS good!

  2. It's good that you are getting that step out of the way. I'm waiting to hear if I have to go. I should have been wayyyyyy past that step except that my judgment papers were lost.

  3. Praying for your upcoming trip & appointment as well as God to provide all the resources you need at the right time!


Thanks for interacting with me thru my blog. I love hearing from you.

Thanks again!
