     We have been very blessed through our 12+ years of marriage to not only have a very happy marriage, but a very happy family as well. Our daughter & son are now 9 and 7 years old, however, we have long felt something was missing. Our very happy and loving family has been incomplete. After years of prayer, God has impressed upon us that now is the time to be obedient to His will, and provide a happy and loving family home to one who does not have that biologically. Because of this, we have been called to adopt a child from China.

After much research, we have found that this adoption will cost us roughly $35,000.  We have wondered why God would impress this upon us at this time, but realized that coming up with $35,000 is a small thing for Him! If we are obedient to Him and His will, he can do BIG things! We are reminded of the scripture in Ephesians 3:20, "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us"   

All four of us are excited beyond measure for this adoption. The excitement can barely be contained. Even the kids have been brainstorming fundraising ideas as well as praying over their new brother or sister every night!
