Newspaper Interview

Yesterday we received a call from our local newspaper. They wanted to do an article on our adoption. After the interview they sent a camara man out to take pictures. Andrew was at work so they only got pictures of me and the children.

Today when I took the little children to the library the lovely ladies at the counter asked the children if they had seen the paper today. They raved about what a wonderful article it was about our family and how much they enjoy having us in the community. The children and I ran to WalGreens on the way home to buy a few newspapers. The article is also online.

We are so very thankful that the story was positive and attempted to show our that "children are a blessing from the Lord!"

May God be praised!

More Magazine Sales....

We have sold a few more magazines which has helped bring in more funds. We are now working on our golf tournament. Pray the Lord will provide the needed $12,000 to pay for the international fees as well as the travel expenses. Also pray that the country of Liberia will open for legal and ethical adoption for the suffering orphans that are in need of a forever home.

On Saturday our I797 arrived in the mail. This is a huge step. The I797 is a Notice of Favorable Disposition concerning application for advanced placement of orphan petition. In otherwords it means that the US government has granted us permission to adopt three orphans from Liberia and the US will allow them to become US citizens.

Thank You

Last week we received another anonomous donation. I can't send a thank you but the Lord knows what a blessing this was to us. Thank you!

Today we received a letter from a dear family. They have a heart for missions and through Christ's bestowing blessing in their family, they in turn donated $1000 to our adoption. Thank you!

May the Lord bring the funds needed to travel to Africa in His time.
