I'm a married mother of "3 1/2" ;) and the loves of my life are my faith and my family. I've grown in my faith over the last two years since my daughter's adoption, she is the reason why I started this blog in the first place, and I'm so looking forward to watching God move in my heart, and the hearts of others who follow along on our journey towards bringing home one of "the least of these". Special needs adoption is my mission field, whether I'm adopting a child myself, or helping other families get funded, or shouting for waiting children who need families to find them, and I hope you'll come along for the ride and watch what God can accomplish when we say yes to His command to care for the orphan, and go out into the world to be His hands and feet.

Daddy's Corner - It's Your Birthday Week

Hi Natasha, It's Daddy!!!
I love you baby doll. It's your birthday week and it's also your brother Dylan's birthday week too!!!. That's right, the both of you have the same birthday. How cool is that?!?!?!
We have got a lot of presents just waiting for you when you come home darling...along with presents from all of the holiday's that you've missed being with us over the last few months...but we will make up for lost time, I promise. :)  We are so close to being able to come see you for the first time baby girl.  We have completed our home study which is where the nice lady comes to our house to make sure it's safe for you and all that good stuff.  We are just waiting for some paperwork to be filed and then we still need to do a little more fundraising.  We thought we were just $600 away from being funded to be ready for our first trip out there but as it turns out, I didn't include a couple of very important things and it looks like we are $1,500 away.  It's a setback to be sure, but it's one that I know in my heart we will overcome.  I want to bring you home so very quickly so that you can get your heart fixed and you can be bouncing around here playing with your brother Jack and being so adorable.  We have been doing a lot of fundraising.  Mommy has been working day and night on making crafts to sell.  We have been receiving auction items from some very nice people and that will hopefully raise some money too.  It gets a little depressing at times honey that just when we think we are moving forward a couple of steps...a pothole comes along and messes things up a little bit.  I don't mean to sound depressing honey.  We are definitely coming for you.  It's just a matter of we know how important it is to get you your heart operation so we are doing all we can to make it happen sooner than later and to know we are so close...just $1,500 away...it just gets frustrating at times.  That said, I have complete faith in God and I know that with God all things are possible.  I am going to get going now baby girl but I will update you on your birthday to let you know how we are doing.  I love you honey and remember that when you want to think about us, just look to the moon and the stars and know that we are thinking about you too.  I love you. Love, Daddy
