The Story

God has brought me on a very exciting journey...I packed up my stuff, sold my car and moved to Haiti...I stepped out in faith. Now, God is calling me on another very exciting journey and again...I'm stepping out if faith. God has put adoption on my heart for several years, but it wasn't until I moved to Haiti that I knew I had to take action and follow God's call to start the adoption process. There are a lot of unknowns currently but God will pave a way!

So here I am trusting that God will continue to provide for me to not only continue to be a missionary but also and most importantly to make all things possible to complete this adoption journey He has brought me on.

I would love it if you would consider supporting me on this journey both with your prayers and your financial support. We have a long journey ahead but we are confidient that God is going before us and preparing the path.

I feel like things have been at a stand still for a long time and needless to say I've been learning a lot about patience!! God teaches me everyday to trust in HIS timing. It's not easy. Some days I can rest in HIS timing. Other days it brings me to tears at how difficult this process has been--and I'm only at about step 2. I'm fully aware that this will continue to be long difficult journey, but that's exactly it, it's a 'journey.' I can't continue each day to long for the final day when I will have my child(ren) with me forever; I have to live each day and enjoy each day of the journey. Through this journey I know God is going to do amazying things, I fully believe that no matter what happens or when it all happens it will all be in God's perfect timing. 

My dear friend KT sent me a wonderful gift about a month ago. She sent me the Jesus Calling for kids devotional. On Decemeber 11th I read the devotional and it hit me hard. "Faith is Knowing" Every single day God is working on my behalf. When I start to stumble or lose faith He is there. He longs for me to talk with Him about my deepest fears, sadness, hurts and frustrations. He also longs for me to bring Him my hopes, dreams, joys and those I love. He wants to work on them TOGETHER with ME and little by little they can become my reality. It takes times, God cannot be rushed and He knows what is best. I need to learn to accept HIS timing. Look at how long Abraham and Sarah waited for their son!! Wow, now that is patience! I'm praying that isn't in God's plan for my life, but if it is then it will be the best plan! Because of their long wait for their son they were filled with unbeleivable amounts of joy and love for him when he finally arrived. 'Faith is knowing God will keep His promises--believeing that things I am hoping for are as real as things I can already see.' 

That is what gets me through each day. That is what keeps me going. Is knowing that God has perfect timing. God sees the big picture. When the day comes that I have my son or my daughter or both I can only imagine all the love and joy that I will be blessed with on that day! So when my days are rough; I pray that I will be reminded that HE is in control and I need to lay it all at His feet. He is going to walk through this journey with me. I wouldn't want it any other way! 

I pray He fills me with overflowing amounts of wisdom, guidance, peace and patience while I'm on this adoption journey.

So here’s the story…

  • June 2010 I went on a mission trip to Haiti AND fell in LOVE with the people and the country and my heart broke for each and every person I met. My work wasn’t done. I continued to serve on mission trips. 
  • July 2012 God called me to Haiti to serve as a missionary at Grace Village.
  • I fell in love with all the children and my heart was filled with JOY with all the love they gave me!
  • God placed a special little boy on my heart out of the blue and our connection grew…and grew…and continues to grow.
  • God has placed it on my heart to adopt him…..this sounds easier said than done….we need lots of prayer to get all the paperwork in place for this to happen….and patience!
  • I love Haitians and want to continue to support them so they can be successful….So I purchase beautiful hand-made metal art made by a man named Claudy and his brothers.
  • YOU can purchase this beautiful metal art and support Claudy and his brothers BUT also help support us raise funds for this adoption.
  • YOU purchase the metal art—you make your home beautiful—you have a piece of Haiti in your home—you support Haitians—you support adoption—ITS AN ALL AROUND GREAT IDEA!
  • We have stepped out in faith and we know that where God leads HE will provide!
