Adopting for a second time in less than a year?! Are we crazy? We don't think so ;). We're taking a step of faith, and we hope you take it with us. And we can’t wait to share all of the details, as they come in, with you! The tough part is the large upfront cost of completing an adoption. Should a daunting financial challenge stop us from fearlessly moving forward to adopt? We definitely don't think so! There are too many little ones all across the world who truly need a family, and adoption is their last option. Our previous adoption cost $40,000 and many of you gave generously, totaling $14,000. This adoption is going to cost ~$40,000 as well. It is so hard to ask for help, especially a second time, but it would be such a blessing to us for you to partner with us to raise these funds to bring a little one into our family, forever!

Honestly? We are bit fearful right now posting this, because we don’t want to upset anyone, or really, ask for help at all. But this is part of us being bold (or trying to be ;)) and fearless (or trying to be ;)) and bringing another little one home to our family. Forever. We are so… so excited, and we are taking a deep breath and trying to be fearless. (That is why it has taken us so long to hit post ;)) But as we are told by many of you (thank you!), so many WANT to help, want to be part of our story, our journey, bringing our little one home. And we will be praying blessings on YOU!

We are in the process of launching some exciting fundraisers that we hope you will support and partner with us on! Praying, sharing these fundraisers with others, supporting financially, and helping us with any fundraisers are all incredible options to support our family.

Here are details on the first two that will launch soon!

*THE ENVELOPE FUNDRAISER* – There will be 200 virtual envelopes, each representing an important, impacting opportunity to support. Envelop 1 can be filled for $1, envelope 2 for $2, up to $200 for envelope 200. You can fill multiple envelopes, in any order. Or you can get a group together to fill one or more envelopes!! Sponsoring any envelop is a huge blessing and absolutely makes a difference! If all 200 envelopes are sponsored, half of our adoption expenses ($20,000!) would be covered!!!

*ONLINE AUCTION* – We will hold an Online Auction soon and are currently collecting items for auction. We greatly appreciate any items you might consider donating for inclusion. If you are local, you can drop items by anytime! If you’re not local, that works too! You can either send us your item(s) or send a picture of your item(s) to and mail to the winner when the auction ends.

We can be creative with auction items! Any items from home businesses such as Scentsy, Thirtyone, Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, Essential Oils, Prints, Advocare, Origami Owl, Isogenix, homemade crafts of every kind, items from an Etsy shop, Tastefully Simple, photography sessions, scarves, gift cards to... anywhere! :) And anything else we didn’t think of! J Your name will be recognized with each item you donate! It would be wonderful if you share details with your friends or family who may like to donate any items!!

We are so blessed and beyond excited to be adding another amazing little arrow to our quiver. And we can't thank you enough for walking with us, praying with us, sending words of encouragement and excitement, and every bit of support you are loving us with. Thank you and many blessings!!!

*Why FEARLESS? Joshua 1:9 has been our family verse since our first little was born. We can all be FEARLESS (which can be hard at times!) and have complete faith in Him because the Lord our God is with us wherever we go.

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or lose faith, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
