Finally, we received an approval ahead of schedule! Today was day 52 of our wait for LOA (Letter of Acceptance) and the average wait is 80 days! So, you can imagine how excited and surprised we are!

Hopefully, we will travel sometime in April. We'll miss his 2nd birthday, but we won't miss it by much!

We're coming precious baby boy!!

Adoption Fundraiser

I know I probably only have a few readers, but I thought I'd offer you the opportunity to own
a beautiful Mardi Gras T-Shirt and help out with our adoption.

The shirts are short sleeved, purple, 100% preshrunk cotton and are available in YS-5XXL.

YS-XL are $10, XXL-5XL are $12. IF I need to ship them to you, I'll charge you exactly what it costs to ship them.

If you'd like a t-shirt, please leave me a comment that includes your email address and we'll work out the details.

Pray for America

A Pro-Life Prayer For Our President And Public Officials
Lord God, Author of Life and Source of Eternal Life,

Move the hearts of all our public officials and especially our President, to fulfill their responsibilities worthily and well to all those entrusted to their care.

Help them in their special leadership roles, to extend the mantle of protection to the most vulnerable, especially the defenseless unborn, whose lives are threatened with extermination by an indifferent society.

Guide all public officials by your wisdom and grace to cease supporting any law that fails to protect the fundamental good that is human life itself, which is a gift from God and parents.

You are the Protector and Defender of the lives of the innocent unborn. Change the hearts of those who compromise the call to protect and defend life. Bring our nation to the values that have made us a great nation, a society that upholds the values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.

Mary, the Mother of the living, help us to bear witness to the Gospel of Life with our lives and our laws, through Christ, Our Lord.
