God NEVER ceases to amaze me!!

We got a call the other night from a friend of ours. She had recently been in Broken Bow and met a lady who had a sibling with Down Syndrome. Our friend shared our story with her and she was so excited. She can't wait to get together with us to share her experiences growing up with a sister with DS. I think that will be incredibly valuable to our girls. As if that wasn't cool enough, she asked if we still needed money for the adoption. After our friend told her that yes, we were still trying to raise funds, she wrote us a check for $1500.00!!! I am still in awe...a person whom we have NEVER met was willing to sacrifice soo much to help us bring TJ home!! It just confirms to me that this truly is God's Will for us. I don't even know how to begin to thank her...she is a true ANGEL!!!


  1. That's excellent! I'm glad I found your blog. I live in Cairo, so we're neighbors so to speak. I'm adopting from Russia in early summer I'm told. Can't wait to follow your progress. He is so cute!

  2. Praise the Lord! That is SO awesome!


  3. I’m holding a $1 challenge over at, on the countdown to Christmas. Kiril is a little boy with significant special needs who has been waiting on Reece’s Rainbow for a long time, and has been bedridden in an institution for over 6 months now. My goal is to get as many people as possible to donate just ONE dollar to Kiril’s RR grant.

    I’ve contacted many people about this already, in the hopes that they will SPREAD THE WORD, EVEN IF THEY CAN’T DONATE. To date, there’s been an amazing response, but Kiril’s path home is still far from sure. I know it is usually against the unwritten ‘rules’ to ask an adopting family for anything – and I can see why. But if you are part of a loving, supportive community, which might be inclined to help in spreading this message and saving this little boy's life, I humbly ask that you let them know about this fundraiser. I have great faith that together, we can give Kiril hope and a future THIS Christmas. Thank you.
