Perhaps you are wondering why you are seeing so many fundraisers and opportunities to help our family financially? Or maybe you see other adoptive families doing the same thing and you wonder why?
International adoption is not cheap. Currently to adopt from Ch*na, where God has led us, the cost is over $30,000.
Why are we doing this? Because there are children in the world that have medical conditions like our son Samuel and our daughter Emmalin who will not receive the medical attention, therapy, love and care they deserve and need if we don't!
Because God called us out of our comfy, complacent life and said will you take up your cross in this way and follow me and plead the case for the widow and the orphan and we said -YES!
We will continue to follow our father and his plans for our lives without abandon, whole heart, no matter the cost! Is it hard, absolutely! Are we tired and ragged and clinging to our Lord right now with all we have, absolutely! Is it worth it, just look at our precious Emme and you will know-ABSOLUTELY!!
We want to do God's work and love others and be the hands and feet of Christ!
God can easily call the families that have the bank accounts and the resources to write the checks for each fee no problem. However, most often he calls the families like us, the ones without the bank accounts to draw from.
We are the willing, the ones who put their faith, hope and trust in him and GO!
Our prayer is that you our brothers and sisters would understand the opportunity you have to be the hands and feet with us and support us on this mission because that is what it is! We are following God's mission for our life and our sons life!
Our son who may never have known The Lord or learned of his love and sacrifice if we didn't step out and say -YES!
We are honored that God has called us to follow him and his plans for our family in this way!
We look forward with anticipation to the day we will hold our son in our arms!
Praising, Praying and Pressing on in obedience to The Lord,
