Ok...I just adjusted the "goal" to $20, 861.00 This reflects the actual costs of the second trip (about $10,000 in total (ish)) minus some donations that had gone towards that amount...I am confident the with God leading in through this adoption HE will provide the means to cover the cost IN FULL!!!!! We are being faithful and working as hard as we possibly can!!!

Now that it is getting chilly it is time to think about fun hats I have quite a few already made feel free to come by and look thought them or send me a message about having one made or shipped (Due to the time parenting 7 children takes I may not be able to them super fast this year super sorry but the kiddos come first)...we are SO VERY CLOSE to paying this adoption off...I know for sure that God brought us to this point and will continue to guide us forward! Truth is such a gem of a little lady and we are blessed to have her hear!!!! Earning the rest of the money needed honestly feels a little silly now that she is here but I had to get on that plane and BRING TRUTH HOME so the travel expenses got charged on a credit card. Please join us in prayer that I would be able to follow closely to Jesus and not worry about the $$ part of this ;)

TRUTH IS HOME!!!!! She is such am amazing child! I she has slid into the rolls of "big sister", "daughter", "mommies helper", "friend", "Christ follower" very easily. She seems to love being home finally! and as we are very sure she misses her created family in Ethiopia we think she is adjusting well! We have dragged her to a couple outings to which she MUST think we are crazy ;) such as fireworks, dressing up as a cow for free food, and the movie theater! We could not be any happier. We also have found a unique blessing that came with Truths arrival...Everett's violence is currently GONE. PRAISE JESUS for this entire path! While we are home we are still going to be paying off this second trip to Ethiopia for a while. Please cover us in prayer for her continued bonding, that Truth knows that she is our daughter forever, and for the other 5 children and their relationships with each other, and for us to be able to pay off this second trip in a timely fashion...AMEN

I am raising money for...The expenses that go hand in hand with adoption. We have been matched with a wonderful 11 year old girl we are calling "Truth". My Husband and I currently have 5 children at home with us. They are 6, 5, 4, 3 and 1...three of our children have entered our family through adoption and two through birth. We feel honored that our Lord and Savior had trusted us with so many of His little ones and are amazed each time He asks us to care for another! We love the trials and joys that come with each child. We feel as if with each adoption we not only adopt a child but a family, history, and culture! Our daughter is currently in Ethiopia and is in need of medical attention! We will be able to provide for her once she is home and are asking Gods people to help with the expense of that transition.


The money collected will go towards...The travel expenses to Ethiopia. We need to travel two times and depending on airfare we could be looking at 2,200 per person per trip=8,800 total in airfare...the in country expenses will be around $1,100 each trip=2,200...just for the trips to adopt and then later pick up our daughter!! We will also be traveling back to her home to day goodbye to family and friends.


Supporters can also help by...PRAYING...our daughter is living in a home with other children who are as sick as she is and NEED homes!! If you are interested in following our journey you can through our blog www.fasnachtgang.blogspot.com.

Our daughter is just one of many children needing a family...she knows that she is "unwanted" in the eyes of her community due to her illness, please pray that she knows that she is fearfully and wonderfully made by Father who loves her through all!!!

Those of you who may not "believe in" supporting adoption or believe that we should pay it all on our own...please do not donate, but please take a good look at your life and see where you could be the change this world so needs!

I pray that eveyone who reads this is covered by Gods Grace, and I pray that He burdens you with the pain He feels for these little souls! I pray that the pain will not leave you until you say yes to God and care for the "homeless and the Loveless" James 1:27...Amen
