The Garage Sale for our Girls.

My friend and travel buddy Amy shot me a quick text this morning.  I knew she was having a yard sale, but I didn't realize...I didn't understand....

The yard sale benefited Grace and Hope.  Seriously friends???


How can we be so blessed with SUCH a wonderful village.


With this week being rough for several of those we love, this just about made our hearts explode.

They raised $100 for our girls to come home!!! Her child gave.  Her sister sacrificed.  Her friend came down, donated, and said, "You go bring those girls home."  We only have $2,290 to go!!!!

Thank you to our friend Chari who has made all these 
picture collages!!!!


Thank you friends.  Thank you....


Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

    his love endures forever

I Chronicles 16:34

If you don't know what's going on, please read Mountains Crumble...It Happened!!! Peel Me Off the Ceiling!

If you hear God nudging your heart or speaking to your spirit about helping bring our girls home....

*Feel free to share our need with anyone God leads you to.  We now only need $2290!  We broke that $3000 barrier and $100  was given since I posted yesterday!!!  

*You can email us at 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net and we will share our phone number (if you'd like to chat) or  address.  

*The LifeSong for Orphans account has been closed.  We are so close to travel that we need to insure any funds have a chance to get to us.  If something is already on the way, it will still get to us in time! No worries!  If you would like a tax deductible way to give, you can email us at 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net.  We do have someone will to take donations.

*Our PayPal address can be used (using the "Family and Friends" method) to 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net.  

*If you have an idea that may help, please feel free to email us as well. We never know how God may work!!!

Whatever avenue you feel comfortable with, thank you.  
Thank you for answering the call that will change the life of two little girls and our family forever.

  Thank you for the sacrifice...just thank you.

Several have asked about our needs for the girls.  We've been hesitant to share since getting the girls home has to be our first priority.  We do have a baby registry with items needed and though not posting the link on here, you can email us at 1thomkat (at) verizon (dot) net .  We thank you as well for thinking about our girls needs.  Again, our absolute first priority is bringing them home.

PRAYER REQUESTS: (They are now all immanent...smile)

1. THAT GOD IS GLORIFIED IN EVERY STEP OF THIS ADOPTION.

2.  I feel a deep need to have everyone join us in prayer for the attachment of our girls.  Please pray they have NO attachment issues and attach to us as a family very quickly.  We have been in the adoption world enough to know severe attachment issues exist.  We pray that GRACE and HOPE have NO issues with attachment...NONE (that God prepares them as well).

. 3. For Grace and Hope, that they are healthy, loved on, and protected. Please pray that they dream of us and attach quicker than ANYONE could imagine.

4. PLEASE pray protection against ALL of satan's schemes.  He's been messing with our family and with Amy and her family.  PLEASE pray a strong concrete, cement, gold, silver (smile) wall between our lives and his schemes.

5.  That we have "MORE THAN ENOUGH" for this trip.  PLEASE PRAY FOR $2,290 in less than THREE WEEKS and please pray for those individuals God is touching to help us financially bring home the girls.

6. Please pray for Thomas and I to see clearly where God is leading and what WE are to do.  

7.  Please pray that I can fully recover and can gain strength before travel comes (both Thomas and I on the last part...physical strength)

8. That my traveling companion (Amy) and I stay well (completely) within country and are safe....not even a nauseous stomach which commonly happens at least once.

 9. That God uses us/speaks through us while we are there, see what we need to see and doing what we need to do.

10. That our families are safe while we are gone and that it is a peaceful (and safe) time for them.

11. For Timothy's complete healing...and that he has walking and running in his future (smile).  That his pain is minimal.

12. Please pray for the Stewart family as they mourn the loss of their father, grandfather, and great grandfather, uncle, brother, and loved one.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

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