Fall Festival

Hello everyone!

Sorry it has been so long since we last posted. It is hard when nothing is really going on. Right now we are really focusing on the money aspect and following God’s direction on where He wants us to go from here. In the mean time though, we have had so much support from family and friends. Most recently, our friend Mary (from our old church Diamond Springs Baptist Church in Virginia Beach) held a Fall Festival Fundraiser for us. We were so shocked to get an email from her telling us all that she had done in preparation for it and she even had a Facebook page set up. She had people donate homemade crafts and baked goods for the fundraiser. She invited everyone to her house for some hot cocoa, cider and shopping! I was so sad that we couldn’t go (we miss Virginia and our church family so badly) but we hear it was a success! Thank you Mary and everyone who attended from the bottom of our hearts. Our lives are blessed because you are in it!

When you don’t know what is going on.

Hello friends and family,

Long time no write! Honestly, there is not one new thing to report with the adoption.  I wish we had something for you. We do have a special request though. No matter what, we want to and WILL adopt a child. But we haven’t given up hope that God will provide us with a biological child to raise as well. On Monday we have an appointment with the fertility doctor we have been seeing for a while now. This appointment is the one where we get ALL our test results back. Over the past month, I have had examinations and procedures and BOTH of us have given enough blood to fully supply our town’s Red Cross Blood Bank (ok, I MAY be exaggerating a bit). This appointment will either be a “here is what is wrong and here’s what we will do to fix it” OR “nothing is wrong and here’s what we will do next”. I am sorta nervous because everything so far that we have gotten back has said that everything is fine. Which is great right? I mean, I don’t WANT anything to be wrong with me but something is clearly not right. It’s in God hands and all we can do is pray for the doctor to have the knowledge to help us. Thank you for all the love, support and prayers during this time.
