Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Psalm 82:3

What if there are children who will suffer somehow because I failed to obey God?
What if my cowardice costs even one child somewhere in the world his or her life?
(excerpt from The Hole in Our Gospel)

This Week Only...and some serious update news!

Good news x2!

#1:  We are incredibly honored to be this week's African Adoption Family of the Week!  What in the world is that, you ask?  Well, it means that our family will be featured on the Give1Save1 website and we get to ask our friends (and even complete strangers) if they will help bring our waiting son HOME.
The Give1Save1 concept is simple.  Give $1 each week to 1 adoptive family to save 1 child from forever being an orphan.  Can you imagine if every family in the U.S. gave $1 each week to an adoptive family?  WOW!  That would be a lot of $1's (dollars that I'm thinking wouldn't even be missed).

SO....will you help us with this amazing opportunity?  Will you give $1, and then ask your friends to do the same?  You can e-mail our blog OR post it on your FB page - whatever works for you.  We would be more grateful than you could ever imagine (unless you're an adoptive family - you already know that grateful feeling).

Just click here: Give1Save1 and click the box that reads: Donate to the African Adoption of the week (that's us!).  Our adoption story/video will be waiting for you, too :o)

Will you help spread the word this week????

#2:  In other good news...our not-so-little boy is two steps closer to coming home!  If you want to see the checklist, click HERE for a review of that final check-list.  Dare I say 4-6 weeks we could be on a jet plane to get him?  Yikes! Yea! Wait...we still have some work to do to get ready for our 7th family member!

Almost Home
