The story of our crazy, chaos filled lives as we follow an amazing God and the plans He has for us!

So, if you are new here, or just don't know that much about me, I am a huge proponent of adoption. It absolutely breaks my heart that children go to bed every night without someone to call mom and dad; without a family to love them. This is why Jonathan and I are foster parents and are also doing foster to adopt, although none of our placements have been available for adoption. There is an amazing family not too far from me who I "met" through their blog. I was referred to their blog when a friend asked for prayer for their family 2 years ago. At that time their daughter who they had adopted from Serbia six months before was battling for her life after having major open heart surgery. Chrissie went to live with Jesus on May 19 of 2010, but has impacted so many lives. This family is the one that told me about our foster agency 2 years ago. Since saying goodbye to Chrissie they have adopted 6 more children, some from the United States and some from other countries. They are amazing advocates for adoption and care of orphans. They are truly an inspiration to me. I hope that you will keep their family in your prayers (as the anniversary of Chrissie getting her angle wings approaches) as well as consider purchasing a T-shirt to support their orphan ministry.
