No News :)

Hello Family and Friends!  I have nothing to report, we are still just waiting and PRAYING for our referral.  I do want to share some information about a ministry that is close to our hearts.  60 Feet is an amazing ministry in Uganda, and all over Africa created to bring hope and restoration to the imprisoned children of Africa.  That's right , I said IMPRISONED CHILDREN.  

As Orphan Sunday (November 6th) approaches, please take a minute and go to their website: http://sixtyfeet.org

Your eyes will be opened and your heart broken.

Overwhelmed :)

The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
Psalm 126:3

We have been so blessed in our adoption journey. Every day brings us inches closer to our little one. The Lord has blessed us with a great deal of our finances so far in the process and we are faithful to believe that the remainder of funds He will provide. When we started this journey, Douglas and I did not have $25,000 hard cash sitting around! We lept in faith trusting that the Lord will go before us. Now, I'm not one for statistics, but here's one I just can't ignore: "34% of Christian families are considering adopting and only 1% of Christian families actually do." And do you know why....you guessed it.....$$$$$

We couldn't do anything that we are doing without the amazing love and support from our family and friends. God has brought many new friends into our lives and connected us with other families who are adopting or have adopted from Uganda. The support from other adopting families is immeasurable! We have been blown away watching families in the process of adoption, helping other families in the process. With that in mind, I'd like to share with you what one of our new friends is doing for us!! Our friend, M, is a Scentsy Representative. She and her family are also adopting from Uganda!! She is blessing adoptive families in a most incredible way! She has set up a page specifically for OUR adoption. 25% of every order goes directly towards our adoption! Can you believe it....she could using her 25% of all sales to help her family, but instead she is blessing other families. I am humbled and honored to call her friend. So, if you love Scentsy products like I do....order from our party page!!! Not only will your house smell amazing, but you will be helping us bring our little one home. If your interested, hop on over to our party page! I'm telling you...everyone should have a Cupcake Burner!

Loving Uganda :)

Praying for our little one massively today that he/she is not being affected by the horrible drought. We are praying for his/her safety, food and clean water, health, someone who loves Jesus to love on him/her, and that God would place him/her in the perfect place for our agency to know them.

Thought I would gather a few pictures of the amazing country of Uganda! Cannot wait until we are there and seeing these with our own eyes!!

Yep....that's the equator!!! Unreal :)
