It is so hard for me to believe that we are in the holiday season!! Time seems to fly!!! We had such a great first Thanksgiving in our new home!! My brother got to come and spend the day with us and it was so fun! We went to the movies with some dear friends and I quickly realized that Mayah is not quite ready for the big screen. We spent a lot of time in the lobby!! A great time was had by all of us though! Kelcie and I did a little bit of shopping Thursday night and Friday has been spent lounging around the house!
I eluded in my last post about some big changes with our adoption. As most of you know, London and Sam have been "stuck" for about a year. This means there has been no movement whatsoever in our adoption process. We love these children so much and being apart from them is hard. When Carrson prays he says "let London and Sam come home today". They don't understand why it is taking so long and frankly neither do I. We are ready for our family to be complete. After lots of prayer we have made the decision to change agencies. This was not an easy task but tonight I can rest easy knowing that my children are going to sleep in a warm bed and full tummies. I cannot go into great detail of why and how we came to this place but please know that we have acted in the best interest of our kids. With all of this comes expenses. We will be paying $600 a month for their exceptional care. We also will need to raise about $8500. With the season of giving upon us we are praying for a Christmas miracle. We are asking you to prayerfully consider sponsoring our family in this endeavor. We know many of you already have and I cannot tell you how grateful we are in the part that you are playing in bringing our children home. All money donated through village to village is tax deductible and they will put it in our family's fund. When we need to make a payment we will let them know and they will disperse the money. 100% of the money donated to our family is given to us. They do not keep any out for fees. Its like an adoption savings account! If you could make a donation (any amount is amazing and appreciated) and then share the link on social media, blogs, emails etc with your contacts it can start a chain reaction when they donate and share! Many people look for ways to bless others during the Christmas season and we would be forever grateful if you would help our two precious kids make it home to their forever family. Please take a few moments to read our story, donate and share.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn't do this without your prayers and help!
We love you all!!
