This past week we were pleasantly surprised to get a card and pictures of our little girl opening the care package we sent her! Our social worker said it is very unusual to hear from them after the packages are received! I was so excited!  Her caretakers sent us a nice little note. They said that Joy was so ecstatic and was ready to "go home already"! Hopefully, any day now, we will get the official paperwork so we can file the I-800! I am praying that this part goes quickly. It has been more difficult than ever to wait, knowing that our little girl is halfway around the world.

This is what Joy wrote to us:"Mommy, Daddy, Natalie and Micah,
I miss you and I'm excited to see you. I love you all! Joy."

We got the bunk beds up and have transformed Natalie's room to make room for her little sister. We are ready...everything except for the money. We put the country fees on the credit card because we  had to pay it immediately. That credit card is due this week and we are still $600 short.  We will also need the money for the post-placement fees and the balance of the travel expenses that will not be covered by our Show Hope grant! I am thankful and amazed for what God has provided. I am trusting Him to provide the rest!

If you would like to be a part of this amazing journey that God has called us on, you can donate by going to and clicking on the donate button, or you can donate directly through paypal on the side of this blog. It takes God's people working together to accomplish His plan. It takes someone willing to provide a home for a little girl; but it also takes many people together willing to help out with the finances, because adoption has many, many expenses. Thank you to so many who have joined us and supported us in this journey! You have helped a little girl in the Philippines come to know the love of a family and also the love of her Father God!
