here's what's brewing

Some of you gals are way ahead of me.

But here's what's brewing.

Yes, another adoption!

Remember the boy that I posted about a while back?
Well, after many months of praying
about him (we began praying long before that post),
we feel God leading US to adopt him.

And we are thrilled.
Along with nervous and every other emotion that goes along with the unknowns!

We have PA.
Our homestudy is done.
Working on our dossier now.

But we've got a ton of work to do to raise funds.
Three adoption in about as many years,
isn't easy.

We've got a MAJOR "giveaway"
that we will launch (hopefully) early next week.

Oh my gosh.
It is SO BIG.

And I need your help to spread the word.
Pretty please.

Nancy said...

So, so happy for you. How exciting!!!

Janet and Kevin said...

Whoo hoo! Very excited for you!! :) Bring it on for your fund raiser. We will be doing the same thing soon whenever we are led to a daughter! You are right. Three adoptions in about three years is not possible for us - but for God it is!!

Thanks for sharing about your new and waiting son! Yippee Jesus!

Love,
Janet, Kevin, Ted, Philip, and Elijah

I'm so happy for you all! It's been a great week-my sister-in-law and her family just got their PA for a 9 year old boy from China. Now there's two less orphans in the world!!!

Cristy said...

Congratulations Lori!! What an amazing blessing!! It is so exciting to see the Lord bring families together! You have to tell us what Macy said when she heard the exciting news!

We will be praying with you for funds. We totally understand the need, and we are in the same boat as we are trying for all of us to travel (if possible) for the twins. God provides, and I love to see how He does it!

So happy for you!!

Shonni said...

When I saw the blog title I had to go get myself a cup of Joe first as I knew this post was worthy of all my attention all while doing something I love almost as much as adoption....my morning coffee!!

Congratulations, now hurry the dossier up and we can do China together!!! I am planning on January travel.

Jean said...

Yippee Jesus!! Can you here me all the way from China? Because I am shouting out the good news!

I am so so happy for all of you! What a blessing!! My goodness our God is good!!

Can't wait to hear even more about your new son! PTL

Madeleine said...

OH HaPpY DaY!!!!!!

I was hoping this was it!!

Last night, we had a church picnic and one of the ladies was commenting how beautiful our daughter was and such a joy.

I heartly agreed and mentioned, if I had the money, I would do it again. Even if I AM almost 43. It shocked her slightly.

And now I wonder if it's just money holding us back.

And if that's a good enough reason!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

I LOVE IT!

Suzette said...

Praising Him with you! What a joy to know he will have a forever family soon! Praying God will provide the needed funds along the journey. He has been so faithful to provide all we needed now we continue to pray for funding for heart surgery in the days ahead.

That is wonderful!! I understand the financial dilemma...we have also paid for 3 adoptions in the past three years...even though one fell through. Anyway, God who calls you is faithful...I can't wait to watch Him provide..again!!
