How YOU can be Involved in Our Adoption

Many of you have asked how you can help us or what we need for the kids/our expanded family.  Thank you, first of all, for praying for us and caring for us!  Secondly, thank you for reaching out and asking!  

We NEED your prayers.  This is going to be a HUGE adjustment for everyone involved (us, Nehemiah and the kids...including the foster parents that are attached to these kids).  

We NEED you to be positive and encouraging.  We already know it will be hard and we know the horror stories and we know the possible issues that may arise.  And we know we will have our hands full!  We have said yes to adoption in obedience to God because He has placed a burden on our hearts for kids in foster care and a love for them.  We are trusting God to help us each step of the way.  We have resources and support in place to help with all of the needs.  So please, just be encouraging.  

We will NEED help with meals once the kids move in. We expect this to happen in May/June. We will know more specifically as our visits progress.   In mid-April we will mostly likely start having them for the weekends.
