I came across this video today and it truly inspired me. When you are going through the adoption process there are days when you can question what God has called you to do and you need some extra encouragement and reassurance...this video did it for me. Please watch this...it's eight minutes...but so worth it. (pause my playlist at bottom of page so you can hear it)
"Remember, you call yourself my body. I'm not there, except through you. Your hands...those are my hands. Your feet...those are my feet. That heart...it's my heart. If it's not beating, my heart isn't beating on this earth anymore. I work through my body-I am a father to the fatherless through my body. I rescue the weak and the vulnerable through YOU. If you're not doing it, no one is."

Kelly and I love being a part of The Levi Circle...this is the adoption ministry group that was started up in our church. The group started out small and it just keeps growing! We had a meeting last night and I can't tell you how good it feels to have so much love and support during your adoption journey. There are so many days that you get down and feel discouraged...like you must have heard God wrong when he called you to adopt. Being around a group of friends that lift you up and remind you what God DID call you to do is so encouraging.
Renee is kind of like our "team leader"...she is so passionate about adoption. She has really helped Kelly and I so much by coming up with fundraising ideas and just being there to support us during this journey. We are very excited about a wonderful fundraiser that Renee has organized for our family...please check out the flyer above and go to http://www.cocomccain.com/ and see what they have to offer. All sales during March 9-16 will go to our family...PLUS, The Levi Circle is going to match the amount that is sold.
The next step in our adoption is filing with immigration and finishing our dossier...so we are really hoping to raise enough money to complete this step so we can move closer to bringing our child home.
We appreciate all of our friends and family so much and THANK YOU for your support!
