Cookbook Sale!

We still have a few boxes of our Forever Family cookbook (as seen on the sidebar) that we would love to sell to help out our adoption expenses, so we are running a sale "while supplies last"!  Buy three cookbooks at regular price ($15 each) and get the fourth FREE!  These cookbooks, containing more than 300 recipes, have received rave reviews from everyone who has bought them over the last year and a half.  They would make great teacher gifts, gift exchange gifts, gifts for the neighbors...the list could go on and on!  Shipping is reduced as well from $5.00 per book to $10 for the four books when you buy the "three and get one free" deal.  That's a total savings of $25 for four books!  If you would like to place an order for this special deal, leave a comment with your e-mail address and mailing address (I will not publish it) and I will send you a paypal invoice.  Upon receipt of payment, the books will be on their way!

Thanks for helping Sophia come home to her forever family!

Two Thousand Three Hundred Dollars...

...is all that stands between our dossier leaving our house and arriving in Taiwan.  Two thousand three hundred dollars.  It's not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, but it's more than we have sitting un-earmarked in our bank account.  Could you please pray with us this week that God will show us His will regarding this last bit of money that we need?  We could use credit, but we committed at the beginning of our adoption process to not do that if at all possible.  We have decided to wait and pray until next Monday, November 1, before making any decisions.  Thanks!

If You Recognize This...You Are Probably An Adoptive Parent!

Our referral dossier came back yesterday with all of the proper certifications from Harrisburg...only two more stops before Taiwan!  However, we are short the money that we need to pay the orphanage fee, so please pray with us as we determine what God wants us to do regarding that.  It's exciting to finally be this close, and I can't wait to get this paperwork out of my hands!  Thanks for your prayers!

Praising and praying as we get closer to Sophia...

The e-mail I have been waiting to read for over four months finally arrived today...our legal documents have arrived at our agency and will be on their way to our house tomorrow!  Praise God!  Last week was a rough week at our house, but through it all, God proved faithful, as always.  I received several e-mails from friends just telling me that God had laid us on their heart, and they were praying for us.  (Thank you...you know who you are!)  I know that God's timing is best, and I look forward to seeing His continued hand in our adoption process.
Please pray that we can get all of the authentications done promptly, and our referral dossier can get back to Taiwan ASAP!  Oh, and we are still in need of a few thousand dollars, but what's that to our Great God?!

Another step closer to bringing our daughter home...

Just Checking In...

Still no news on our legal documents and no new updates.  Only bright spot is making some new "bloggy" friends through this process.  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers...it's so hard not knowing anything.

Still waiting...
