Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

James 1:27

He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.

Ephesians 1:5-6

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.

Isaiah 1:17

See What's NEW!!!!

Hey there my blogger followers!!! ;) Soooo, we are still waiting for our LOA, I've had some pretty big lows in this wait-but I am growing so much and I am living for the NOW.

So I thought I'd give ya some what's new around me...

For ONE! I have a friend who is having an AMAZING auction fundraiser. She is leaving very soon for travel and is short on funds, but I have no doubt with this awesome auction that she will see God move mountains! For every $5 you bid you get entered into a drawing to win an American Girl doll AND a cute dress for your little girl and her doll!!!! Go check it out, I promise you will NOT be disappointed!!!

In other news-I have 3 girlfriends and we chat EVERY DAY! We are all AP(Adoptive Parent) mamma's and they have been a blessing, an encouragement, a shoulder to cry on, cheerleader, and much needed prayer warriors! They truly have been a Godsend through this journey. One of my mamma friends, (our Fashionista southern bell) is now home with her sweet and incredibly cute cute boy!!! If you want to follow her journey her blog is awesome mamma is also apart of many organizations that help orphans and one of them is the Asher Foundation which helps raise medical expenses for orphans who need it! They sell all kinds of things to raise money for this! You can look them up at:
 Another one of the mamma's is leaving in 15 days!!!!! This sweet friend has a heart of gold! While getting ready to head to China she signed up to for a program called Safe House, where families can take in children while their parents are trying to find a place to stay or get themselves together. She is now gearing up to go get her boy and I just can't wait to see him in her arms!!! This is her blog!!!

And last but certainly not least is my sweet friend who is our fighter and our Abraham :)! She  JUST found out yesterday God blessed her families socks off by FULLY funding their adoption to bring their sweet boy home!!! Read her blog, you will see and hear the wisdom in her words! :)

ANNNNND I told you all I was working on a project to raise more money for our own adoption...well we are ready to kick it off!!!
                                          Our Connected Hearts Project

This design was done by my sweet friend Steph that I was talking about earlier. We are selling them for $15 (shipping included) and all money is going towards bringing home Isac and Nina. If you would like to help show your China love for our babies Email me at or leave a comment below! I also have a silver charm that the design can go in but waiting to get a chain for that, so if your interested in silver let me know! We are also working to get other designs together! I would REALLY like to continue to sell these both for other families adopting and for other organizations that helped us out by giving us grants! But first things first...WHO WANTS ONE!!!

And I want to give a BIG thank you to all of you who have bought one of the Adoption Bug shirts! Those are still for sale as well!!! The link to those is on the side! 

Please PLEASE feel free to share the necklace sale with family and friends!!! Let's get these babies HOME! <3 <3!!!

Things to pray for--still waiting for LOA (letter of Approval), and we are having a BIG kids sale this weekend with A LOT of our kids items! We are praying we sell a lot and we are also putting out donation jars there.

That's all for now folks have a Great Week peeps!!
