I just love this photo of our son to be. He has stolen our hearts.
There are nights I want to sit down and add in my thoughts on our adoption.  Like most adopting families there are a lot of emotions, worries and fears of the journey.  Have gone through seven adoption each has been filled with the excited and unknows of what to expect.  So much through preparing our dossier.  Having to update our dossier has added up quickly and also taken away from the funds we have saved to travel with.

This adoption will be different from our prior adoptions.  We will be taken an additional trip to the three we normally take.  So we may be traveling 4 to 5 trips.  This means extra funds involved for both adoptions.  Our first trip we are going to begin paperwork for our Ellie.  We will be traveling in September or early October for one week and then return back for her court hearing.  Hoping we are able to arrange her court hearing during the time we are able to meet with Clyde.   And during Ellie's pickup trip have court for Clyde.  Praying during this trip we are able to waive the 30 days of waiting for Clyde.  If not we will have to return to meet our son.  Knowing that we will be traveling multiple trips we will also have to hire caregivers for our children while we are away.

Both these children have our hearts and we will move the mountains during this journey.  I am not worried because behind the both of us is our Lord pushing us through this journey.  If I need be I will crawl on my knees to bring our little ones home.  Adoption is costly but two little lives are needing homes with a family.  They both have medical that will need addressing and our insurance and our experience will  cover their needs.

Every penny spent so far have came from my husband working extra at his work and our savings during the year.  Both Gary and I ask for nothing for ourselves only for these two children travel expenses,  what fees involved in bringing them both home.  Once home we have a doctor that specialists in their care.  He will care for their medical needs like he now cares for our daughters.

At home we have a bed set up for our son Clyde in Jake's room filled with toys. And will add our son's name on the wall next to Jake's.  Little Ellie will be blessed to share a room with Penelope our youngest little girl age 5 years.  After our adoption of Ellie and Clyde are family will be completed.  These last two little ones  will be showered in attention and love.  We can not give them the 5 birthdays they celebrated in an orphanage but we will be able to give them many~many more in the future to come.  Both Ellie and Clyde we be celebrating their birthdays when we meet them this fall.  They will both be turning 5 years old close to together.

We are not allowed at this moment to discuss where  either child is located.  Nor their given names.  we have chosen new names for each of them once adopted to replace their birth names.  Both children also have the same medical diagnosis and will need the same medical care which we are currently dealing with another child we adopted.  Later in our adoption journey I will discuss more on Ellie and Clyde's medical needs but for now we have to focus on getting funds to bring them home.

Our family is very fortunate that we are connected to Reece's Rainbow where we meet our children Chrissie, Jake, Gennie, Penelope and our Katya :O))) you can see our family on  also you can donate directly on our FSP Reece's Rainbow.   We are happy to be apart of this big wonderful family of Reece's Rainbow.  And thankful for all the love and support through each of our adoptions.  Please during the next several months share our adoption blog.  By sharing it will help us bring in the funds we desperately need to adopt our children.  Every dollar matters in adopting a children and every child matters.  Our prayers are that these two children will be here and their 6th birthday surrounded by family and friends in a family.   If you are unable to donate, please share, share with your church and community.  Support in numbers, prayers in numbers our little ones need your help and our family to love them.  God bless everyone who prays for them and our family..

We have date and a new little girl

Letting everyone know we have a date to travel in Mid~January.

FBI updated :O))

Today we drove 30 miles to our Local Sheriff station to be finger printed once again.  Praying this will be the last and final time our fingers have to be printed.  Each time you  think it might get easier but my fingers just can not seem to relax.  So far just this adoption we have been ink printed three times and had bio~metric once for USCIS.  With each set of fingerprints means additional costs to our adoption.  The updates alone have added up quickly and we will still have to notarize and apostle each document.  With 60 or so documents it is adding up quickly at $20 a piece for notary and $20 for apostles.  SO a big hunk of our savings we have set back for our trip.  Once our dossier is submitted we will be working towards raising the funds we need to travel with.  And with two new little ones this means two of everything from Airlines, Child's Visas, Children Medicals, Immigration fees and the list goes on and on.  Every dollar so far has came from our savings.  Not one penn…
