Haiti On Our Heart, We're Adopting!

We are the Bowell family, Kyle and Andrea and our three boys, Bentley, Healey, and Hudson. We have had a heart for Haiti and the people there ever since Kyle went on his first mission trip to Haiti three years ago. He has returned each year since, and now we feel God leading us to adopt a little girl from Haiti. We are so excited to add a daughter to our family, and look forward to the day we get to bring her home. The process can be long and the time frame is unsure, so we would really appreciate your love, prayers and support as we begin this exciting journey.

We received our first adoption grant this week! It sort of made us feel official! It was from a sweet personalized blanket company (swellforever.com) that has a heart for fostering and adoption. They award small grants to adopting or fostering families based on one months' sales.
As far as the adoption goes, we are at a standstill waiting on an immigration form to be approved by homeland security. Once it is approved (hopefully soon!) we will finally be ready to mail off all our documents to Haiti. And that's when the real wait begins to be matched with our daughter!
If you'd like to be praying, we would love prayers that this form will be approved soon so we can move on in the process! Thanks so much! ❤️

Well this is the largest check I've ever written, by far! Thank you to everyone for your countless prayers, donations and support of our fundraising to help us bring our baby home! This is the biggest of all the payments but we've still got a long way to go financially from here!

3 years ago today I got my first correspondence from Kyle on his first mission trip to Haiti. I think it's safe to say there was a tiny mustard seed planted in his heart for Haitian adoption on that trip! I see these beautiful little kids and it makes my heart soar thinking we get to go to Haiti one day and meet our little one. It also makes my arms ache wishing she was already in our arms. Being a parent is an amazing thing, how you can deeply love someone you've never even met but know is yours.

I am so excited, I just checked our adoption account and we are only $4,000 away from being able to make the big $12,000 payment when our homestudy is done and our dossier is ready to send off (something I'm hoping will be ready early-mid summer) This is HUGE since this is our biggest chunk due during the process. We are so humbled and grateful for all the generosity we've received, we are truly in awe of it and in awe of how God has worked so far in all of this. Thank you all who have given and thank you all who will give!
