Pendant Giveaway! Come Celebrate With Us!!!

Last month (in our giveaway blog) I said, "Next month, who knows, maybe we'll be giving away an adoption related item celebrating the day we were referred our twins!" It didn't occur to me that my statement would be very true, in a very profound way. I harbored hope in my heart, but was afraid to really believe. Referrals from our agency had been taking longer, seven months quickly becoming the average. Yet....

God is bigger than time lines.


We are celebrating with a giveaway! We will draw a name on March 8th (our one month anniversary of our referral). We hope to offer giveaways to raise awareness of the needs of these precious little ones around the world (and to celebrate) every month around this time, so check back.

This month we are giving away a beautiful pendant featuring an image of the African continent. The background text reads, "Home Future Family Hope". It's sold by AHope which provides two children’s homes in Ethiopia exclusively for the care of children infected with HIV, with a capacity of about 100 children total. At least 80% of the profits from each sale will be donated to AHOPE for Children to help them on their mission of supporting children of Ethiopia affected and infected by HIV. Check it out, it's beautiful!

AHope Pendant-When you comment on this post you will be automatically entered! Please leave a way to contact you and let us know if you want the standard chain or leather/sterling cord. Sorry, we can only mail within the U.S.

Thank you for celebrating with us! If you are considering adoption, would like to know more about adoption, or are looking for ways to give, please click on the adoption support site below!

If you have a moment, would you please pray with us. Below are are most current and immediate prayer needs.


1. We are praying for the lawyer and his conviction when He sees our children's faces.
2. We are praying for paperwork to be perfect and present.
3. We are praying for those relinquishing...for their spirit, hope, God's peace. We are also praying they are able to be present with the correct identification.
4. We are praying for the judge and that he sees the need to pass us the first time we come to court.
5. We are praying that we are able to travel in April, not for convenience, but to know our children are safe during elections in Ethiopia and to have confidence they are where they are supposed to be...forever (as long as God loans our children to us on this earth).
6. Most importantly we are praying that our twins are warm, comforted, loved, held, that angels are surrounding them, that God's hand is upon them...and the list goes on and on.
7. We are also praying that God blesses us financially and the funds flood in for travel.

Please continue to pray for a few others that, in their situations, governments (and mountains) need to move to bring their children home.
Please pray for Daniel, Junior and Dimoh (Liberia).
Please pray for Olivia Mame (Ethiopia)
Please pray for Rolando and Julia (Guatemala)

Please also pray for healing for three little girls with Leukemia, Abby, Tatum, and Elke.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
