The Story

We are the Thao Family. Lee, Lisa, Sodi and Gage.  We are a close family eager to bring home our daughter (and sister) from India.  From the time we (Lee and Lisa) met, adoption was a desirable choice to be blessed with .  We are BEYOND blessed.  We are two people who desperately love our children and are so eager to bring home our daughter from India.  We knew the cost would be great but we believe that God will supply, there was no other answer...so Sweet Child, here we come.  We know what it feels like to be undeserving and blessed and we know hard times may come, but we approach with eagerness.

Would you consider donating any amount toward our daughter's arrival? We will create a quilt with the names of donors to show that she was anticipated.  We are expecting and it is exciting!  Our daughter Sodi wants to be a part of the process and is making balloon stress balls as part of the fundraiser.  Please note "stress ball" in your comment if you would like your donation to provide a gift someone else.  We will update her endeavor here or on Facebook.

We are presently in the stage of creating a dossier and should be matched within two months after it is completed.  Our new Thao will likely be a toddler when she comes.  She will likely have some special need.  We are and have been preparing for this through trainings.  If you know us, you know we POUR FORTH.  We've  not had a lot of money but we have been people of action, not just in our family...but with our friends.  We are faithful.  We would greatly appreciate any donation, as we know and with excitement, and real longing look forward to being the family God already knows.

If you don't know us, we wish we knew you!!!!!  We have a favorite verse Psalm 68:6 "God sets the lonely in families"  We (Lee and Lisa) desire to be close, and we believe family is where the heart is.  God has set US with Gage and Sodi, Little Thao and you.

Sincerely, Lee and Lisa

What do you do when you find your forever love?  We've been blessed over and over and she is ours to care for on this Earth.  Thank you God!  We are undeserving.  Her name?  It means Miss Divine!!!  Tell me you're not tearing up!!  How do we pray for you?  I imagine running my hand over and over against your little...almost three year old head. (not sure you will let us do that.)  You are a peanut...one month older than Gage, yet only up to his shoulder and eight pounds lighter!!  We are hoping those who read this will help us bring you home and support us in prayers.  We'd love to show a video we put to music...but you need protection, you are just too invaluable!! So if those who support you, support US will pray for positive preparation for you and your family here :)  Please spread the word supporters, and if you haven't had access to our music video, please contact us.  CELEBRATE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love the THAOS

Merry CHRISTmas everyone!!!! Are you excited?!  We are getting closer to being matched.  We received permission to request to be matched with our daughter!!!! We are in a sweet spot with our paperwork too.  
I (Lisa) can tell you I am notably more satisfied this year than last. Last year the ache to go forward to bring our daughter home was so great! ... but we didn't commit to do so. I can't explain to anyone the confidence and appreciation I feel.  
When we are guaranteed our match ( on this earth) we will send you a picture.  
Things are more real now. I saw a soft pink plush and I wanted to get it.  I looked at the pink doggy blanket hanging next to Sodi and Gage's sticking and I KNOW she owns it. Weird as it may seem, I miss her.
Love to all of you.  I'm praying for you my "family'. I have your hardships on my mind . 

I cant believe God sent his SON and that He CAME. 

Love Lisa
