Our time overseas led us to our two beautiful special-needs daughters, one whose condition is life-threatening and medically complex.  We have a special place in our hearts for these extra-special children and feel we have been equipped and called to serve those with the greatest needs - those who are often "too complex" for others to consider.  There is a precious little girl who has just such a need.  Her situation is urgent and fragile.  We were not planning to adopt again anytime soon, but God had other plans.  My husband is working overtime as much as is available in order to offset the unexpected expense of agency and lawyer's fees.  It is because of the love and support of our friends, family, and community that we were able to bring our daughters home, and now we need your help again.  We have only a few short weeks to meet this financial need.  Would you join us in supporting this precious girl?

We also have an etsy store if you can help support us through a purchase!


*Due to the nature of the situation, we are unable to post her picture or greater detail about her at this time.  Thank you for your love and support!

  1. We are on the way home with our precious girl! Thank you son much for all your wonderful support financially and emotionally and through your prayers! We have made 63% of our goal in only a short 2 weeks thanks to you! We are confident God will provide the balance over the coming weeks before we finalize the adoption. Please continue to share. Thank you for being a part of our story!

  2. We are picking up our daughter THIS WEEKEND! Thank you SO MUCH for those who have stepped up to support us! With a recent "post share" from a friend, we have DOUBLED our donors and have gone up 10% in just a few short hours. NO donation is too small! Our community is large, so just $3 from many friends will make it effortless for us all! Many hands make light work! Please share and challenge your friends to give just $3!

  3. Thank you so much, dear friends, for joining us to help a precious child in her time if need. We have received news that paperwork on her end is complete and we are now waiting for the state of SC to approve her coming into the state. We are only days away from approval. Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers and please share our link! Please donate if you can! No amount is too small. Many hands make light work.

It can be a scary journey. She needs a family to be at her side along the way, cheering her on, always having her best interest in mind. I pray they are able to be a forever family soon. Amanda (mom to a beautiful 2 year old daughter with type 1)
