Its with great excitement that we announce we are paper pregnant!
Our application for adopting from China has been approved. This means we are underway to schedule our second home-study since beginning this jounrey in 2011. We switched agencies as the Lord directed us to a Christian agency with the same heart as ours. We are so excited about where the Lord is leading.
Our hearts are filled with hope as we bring hope home!
China has strict guidelines, and with that, I (Becke) will still need to continue to lose weight. I am ok where we are, but for my health and to be able to do amazing things with Hope, its for the best!
Please pray as the Lord leads us on this journey.
We are so grateful for all of you that have followed and prayed us through on this journey. It has not been easy and filled with emotions far greater than we could have ever imagined. Along the way, we have not lost Hope in where the Lord is leading and guiding. We have not lost hope that the Lord will provide.
With that, we need to raise some funds for this adoption to bring Hope home. We also have created a Facebook group as well if you are interested. We are looking for ideas for fundraisers, and people to come along and help. If the Lord leads, we have put a button on the top of the page, that you can donate at.(Paypal, donate now)
We are trusting in the Lord to provide what we need when we need it.
We are moving to a new house in May so our home study we are hoping to have it begining of June. This gives us time to gather papers, update forms from our previous home-study and raise the needed funds. Also, this gives more time for me (Becke) to drop some weight.
We will keep you updated along this journey to bring Hope home to us.
One idea we will be doing is having a suitcase that we will bring with us to China when we get Hope that will have all the names of those that have provided for her to get there. If there is a donation, we will put your name on the front of the suitcase that we will take. If there is a personal message you would like us to put on it, please let us know.
Also if you live around us, you can write it on the suitcase. We are so excited to resume this journey!
Looking forward in what the Lord does.
