Now to the "business"

We are asking for prayer as we await PA (pre-approval) from China to adopt our sweet son whom we just sent our LOI (letter of intent) to adopt :)

He's 3.5 years old...hehehehe....he's smack dab in-between the girls...yep, our "twins" are about to become triplets...hehehehe!!

I'm not allowed to show his beautiful face until PA but I will show you his little dimple smile.

We'd love for you to join us in praying for God's perfect will, His protection for our son, & provision as we proceed through the paperchase.

We are stepping out in complete faith that God is going to provide financially for this adoption. He has given us amazing peace & guidance and we are trusting He will provide. Our fabulous agency, Nightlight Christian Adoptions, has estimated the cost of the adoption to be $25,000-$30,000. There are several phases that the fees will be due...right now, we have an immediate need of $2,500. I have added a "Chip-In" bar on the upper right on my blog. If you feel the Lord leading you to donate and be a part of bringing our son, Solomon, home, we'd be very honored! Most importantly we covet your prayers.

We would love for you guys to share our family with your family & friends...Help us spread the word about our little one.
We wait with great anticipation at all the Lord is about to do!

I am crying bittersweet tears of joy for you! I am rejoicing and dancing and thanking God that He gave you the desires of your heart to be able to add another sweet son to your amazing family, but saddened by our own inability to adopt at this time.

Is this the same sweet little boy that was on your heart from before? you HAVE to share how this decision was made, how the Lord confirmed it and when you knew it was time to set forth on your new journey! I can't wait to help spread the word and raise money to help you get your boy home! Praise Jesus, I needed to hear some good news today and the fact that you are setting an orphan in a loving family is exactly what I needed to hear!Love you lots, Can't wait to see what God will do.

Congratulations! Somehow I had a feeling this was going to be your announcement. I couldn't be happier for you and your family.

My motto through both of our adoptions (more so now) has been that God will provide. Faith is what it is all about.

Blessings,
Mandi
