Great News!

The adoption agency we are interested in told me yesterday that we meet the requirements to adopt from Taiwan.....(sigh of relief) :).....I also spoke with a local social worker today. We will begin our homestudy process this June as well. Our focus now is-TO RAISE SOME MONEY! The first few fees are going to be in the thousands....WOW! I'm like ....HELLO I'M A TEACHER......NOT A MILLIONAIRE ...HAHA! But it is completely worth it in every way. I am going to figure out how to put PayPal on this page so that you all can donate that way. If you feel called to donate, you can also contact us through email. Every penny will add up. If you can donate $10.00 it will be a blessing! Please spread the news!!!! I love you all very much! If we are blessed with a baby girl....we know the name....if it's a sweet baby boy......not so sure....we're still thinking on that! I would love for everyone to become followers. To leave a comment or to become a follower you need to create a profile. It's free and so easy! Post some good name ideas!!!!! So excited:)

First Bump in the Road

I was told today that a lot of Taiwan adoption agencies have put a hold on American adoptions. I really hope there isn't much truth to this. I have sent out a couple of emails and hope to hear something back soon. I was also told that the few orphanages that are still open to adoption here require you to be 30 years old. :( This is the exact reason that we decided against adopting from China.....I really don't want to wait that long. I know that the Lord has everything under control! I really just want to get this process going!!!! SUCCESSFULLY! Please pray that the Lord has favor with us............Much,!

Our Calling

Hi Everyone! Jason and I are excited to get the adoption process rolling. We are planning to adopt a baby from Taiwan. We are going to apply this June. YAY! It is going to be a VERY long process. For the next several months there will probably not be very many posts due to everything being slow right now. As you all know, international adoption is incredibly expensive. I believe that the Lord is going to supply every need. Jason and I will be speaking at different churches about our new journey and the process that is involved. I will also be singing some songs that the Lord has placed on my heart. We pray that friends and family will donate to this fund. We are in the process of opening an account at Family Savings Credit Union that all who feel called can donate to. We would love to sing and speak at any of your churches. If you are interested, you can contact me via email Please continue to pray for us! We love you all and will keep you posted!!!

"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord."1Sam. 1:27-28
