About Us

Here we go again....

Well, I thought it was about time to resurrect the blog. The word has been getting out (not that we have been trying to keep it from getting out), so here is the deal. We are pursuing another adoption. At this point there is more that is uncertain than is certain, but this much we know. We are interested in pursuing a teenage girl from Ukraine that we met in a past hosting experience. We are aware that she has at least one sibling. In coming days, we will seek to clarify that situation, but we are beginning the process anticipating adopting two teen girls!!! We are unsure of their exact availability, and in Ukraine, we are aware that we can only request to be considered to be their parents. Ultimately, our ability to pursue them is up to the discretion of the Ukrainian government. Please pray for favor in that process.

For years, I joked with Denise that my perfect child rearing plan would be to have kids and let someone else raise them until 13. That was the youth minister in me talking. Boy how a few years and a little perspective change you. I am no longer so confident in my abilities, but I am confident in our God.

We are really unsure of the details or the path that we will be led down, but we are confident in God's call to pursue this addition to our family. We will post details as we can, but for now, the information will be pretty scant. Just pray for us. God knows the details, and we will find out in time!
