The Story

One week ago, we had just sent in our dossier to bring home a super 8 yo little boy with spina bifida named John.  The same day we sent in our dossier, we saw Holden...a fiesty 13yo who is months away from aging out of the orphanage system in China.  It took us less than 24 hours to realize what a blessing he would be to our family!  So BOOM...we are in a race to get him home before his June birthday.
It was a little unexpected to find ourselves adopting 2 boys instead of 1.  In fact, we started this process thinking we were on a specific path and God has turned us around...shook us up and put us on an entirely new and wonderful path. 
We are so excited to be working to bring these two boys home...but we were not financially ready to add a second child to our China Itinerary.  I know that God intends us to bring home Holden and we hope that you can be a part of helping make that happen!  Thank you for considering our fundraiser!

I am so thrilled that things are moving along! We are expected our I800 approval any minute....was that the mailman?...nope not yet..haha. After that there will be a couple more hoops to jump through and then we will be off to China to pick up our boys! Don't get me wrong there is a lot of work for us to do around the house - especially getting things ready for John since we don't know exaclty how mobile he is. There are rooms to rearrange and we still haven't figured out what our travel arrangements are going to look like. Who will be going to China and who will be staying home. There are a lot of things for us to pray about! I am so emotionally recharged by your supportive words...thank you to everyone who has donated and everyone who has left us messages. My family is so grateful that you have chosen to be a part of our story! Thank you!

WoW! We are so grateful for your donations! We are sending off our first care package to Holden on Monday...we were kind of unsure what to send. We settled on a baseball hat, a long sleeve shirt, a small lego set, a set of pull back and go cars, a small set of styrofoam glider airplanes and a photo album of his new family. We picked up a couple of things for John's second care package...a new shirt, another lego set and some gliders. It seems like Chinese New Year is going to take forever to end! I know as soon as it is over we are going to just be overwhelmed with how fast things are going to move. I should enjoy these 2 weeks and really use them to get our house ready for our new boys! Thanks again for your generosity in helping to get our boys home!
