I think we FINALLY decided to do an enchilada fundraiser. Our friends, the Laughrey's, had one and it was very successful. We will have people pre-order the enchiladas and then have a pick-up time and place. We will post the details as they become more clear. We know it will be in Oct. sometime, but that is about all we know. Stay tuned for more details:)

A New Name

Just as the Lord changed Abram's name to Abraham and Simon to Peter and Saul to Paul when they became part of His Family, so we will be changing Misha's name when he becomes part of ours. Technically, we cannot change it until we go to court in the Eastern Europe to finalize the adoption, but from now on we will refer to him by his new name. . . Toby Lee McDonald Jr. a.k.a. "T.J."...our little man:)

Praise God!!

The appt. went well and we went ahead and put Misha "oh hold"!! Now...we just have to come up with 20 grand. No problem considering we serve a God who owns a cattle on a thousand hills:) Please keep praying because I know that the journey ahead of us wont be without stress. I am celebrating in this victory for now!! I feel like I just found out I was a sense, it is the same thing, isn't it?!?

Be sure to right click on the box below and then select all.


By the way....we had a GREAT meeting with our pastor and the fundraiser is back on!! God is already moving!!

BIG day today!!

Today is the day that we will (hopefully) find out if it is possible for us to adopt little Misha. Please pray that the Lord will allow it to be. We have all already fallen in love with him, it would break our hearts not to be able to welcome him into our family as our son.

It seems like there may be one more avenue to try to be able to pursue little Misha. Please pray that God will make a way where there seems to me no way!!
