"Change The World for One" Giveaway

As we are praising God for the year He gave us (amazing and growing), we are reaching toward our three month marker in the wait for our twins. As we've shared in a previous giveaway, we plan on celebrating these monthly milestones with a giveaway of an adoption related item.

Orphans around the world are suffering. If God can use us to bring even a little more awareness to the reality these children face, that's what we plan on doing. If you have a chance, please read our previous post. MANY statistics were brought to our attention. They have brought us to our knees. God has convicted us. A matter of fact, the post is called Convicted.

That said, this giveaway will be a T-Shirt that says "Change the World for One". You can find the t-shirt here if you scroll down (on the right side of the screen) and let us know the size and kind (women or unisex) that you would like. The sizes can be found on this website. It will take a little bit longer than normal to get this t-shirt to you (since we will order it specifically for the winner).

Please leave some way for us to contact you in the "Comments" section at the end of the blog (after "Mck Linky"). If you don't wish to leave an email in such a public forum, you may click on the "Contact Me" link on this blog (on the right) and your message/email will go ONLY to us. We will be announcing the winner on our blog on Wednesday, January 6th, the three month marker on our wait for the twins.

Please check back next month (around the same time) for our next giveaway, celebrating another month passed waiting for our referral of twins!

If you have a moment, please continue to pray as we seek to bring our children home.


God has brought us a long way in this adoption. He’s touched hearts and supplied funds in ways we didn't think possible!
We are now waiting!

Immediate Adoption Process Prayer Requests
*That the funds pour in like water in a surge of blessing and that God blesses us with the funds to accept the referral and travel when the time comes.
*That God’s hand is on the remaining paperwork and that they proceed with not a glitch, quickly and correctly. These are the papers we will need to accept the referral of our sweet little blessings, the papers to pass court, and the papers to bring them home.
*That our twins may be gathered into our family with a quickness blessed by God.

All Adoption Prayer Requests:
Please Pray…..
*For these little ones God has chosen to place in our family…for their physical and emotional health in a difficult place.
*For their biological family…that God has His hand on them and brings them peace in whatever they must face and the choices they will be making. Also, please pray that they come to know Christ and the peace only He can give.
*That God has His hand on this adoption, guiding us, bringing peace, and financially providing.
*Last, though it may seem a bit premature, please specifically pray that once we are referred our little ones, that they come home quickly and pass court the first time (many are starting to have multiple court dates and a LONG wait until travel). The Ethiopian government is being very cautious and caring with their wonderful children though and for that we are so thankful.
* That we have peace and not stress, trusting God in every step.

We also pray that hearts are convicted daily to open their families and lives to orphans around the world.


Also, please join us in prayers for three beautiful Christian families and five sweet children who are facing obstacles above and beyond what a adoption process usually looks like. This used to be four families, but God brought sweet Jubilee home from China just about a week ago. Governments will literally have to move for these older and special needs children to come home. Families are waiting for them and we are SO excited to see God work in these lives and these governments to bring these adoptive blessings home!

Olivia Mame (Ethiopia)-I would like to ask your prayers for a little sweet young girl in Ethiopia named Olivia Mame. There are some very immense road blocks, serious ones, that have to be conquered in order to finish the adoption of this precious young lady.

Daniel (Liberia)-A little one with hydrocephaly awaits his family. Please pray that Daniel does not deteriorate farther and that people in authority to move this case feel the passion to see this through quickly. There are also two more beautiful sweet blessings this family is trying to bring home as well.

Ronaldo and Julia (Guatemala)-For years this family has been trying to get their beautiful future children out of Guatemala. Every time it seems close there is another glitch. Please pray with us. Please pray that EVERY problem is resolved and every piece of paper has the perfection only God can give.
