We got the call!!

I am so ecstatic!! We got the call today with our offiicial "referral", which means we will be able to go get our little girl in approximately 4 months! I can't believe it is actually happening. For so many weeks, I have been praying, hoping, dreaming and trying to keep myself from getting my hopes up, "just in case".  And now, I am overwhelmed. A mixture of joy, anxiety and anticipation is filling my heart. I can honestly say this is the BEST anniversary, birthday and Mother's Day present EVER!!

One request for prayer is that we need the $6100 Philippines country fee by next week. We have about $2600 in the account from donations, but we still need about $3500. Some of you have asked how you can help. We have set up a tax deductible account at our church for any donations. Donations can be mailed to PO Box 99086, Louisville, KY 40269 or you can click on the donation link above and donations can be made to our paypal account.  Thank you in advance for your prayers and support! We can't wait to see what God is going to do!


  1. AHHH yay!!!! You were right! May really is going to be the best month! ;)


  2. So excited for your family! I've been reading your blog for awhile and this is really great news! We're traveling at the beginning of July to get our son in Manila...I know well the wait that you are enduring! God is so good, and although it so hard at times, his timing is perfect!
