The beginning of our journey

I've been out of the blog world for a long time, but I feel that since we are starting this incredible journey of adoption that it is only fair to share with everyone about our incredible journey.  We know so many people that want to adopt and we want to share our journey and knowledge that we acquire with you all.

We have always felt like the Lord is calling us to adopt, but we just didn't know when.  We now have three boys and feel like the time is right.  We were always planning to just wait until we had all the money saved up, but through various circumstances we now see that we are supposed to move forward in faith with the Lord as our guide.  He will make a way and we are trusting him in this great endeavor.

We are planning to adopt a little girl from Ethiopia.  Her name will be Willow.  The verse that the Lord laid on my heart was Psalm 30:11 "You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness." We want you to help us turn Willow's weeping into Joy.

We are in the process of having tshirts designed for everyone that would be interested and we will let you know as soon as they can be ordered.  We also want to provide a way for people to donate directly even if they don't want to buy a shirt.  No amount is too small.  We are grateful for whatever you can do.  You will find the donate button located on the upper right corner of our blog.

Above all, we ask that you would lift us up in prayer.  The Lord is mighty to do all things and we hope that you will partner with us in seeking the Lord to "move mountains" on our behalf and bring this precious little girl home to us.  We want above all to show the love of Christ and how when we were lost and weeping, He found us and brought us to himself and adopted us.  Adoption is such a beautiful picture of the gospel and what the Lord does in our lives.

We thank you for your prayers and support, Casey and Hannah
