Are you done?

This is another common question that we receive
from friends, family, strangers...

"Are you done?"

I guess I respond to this question differently
then it was intended.

Once your heart has been touched,
you have loved,
you have sought out
the heart of the orphan -
how can I ever be done!

Will we adopt again?
That is up to the Lord!
we are planning to adopt again! :)

That is up to God!

Are you working towards another adoption?
Yes, if we want God to use us -
we can't just sit back and take it easy.
We must be taking action to be His vessel.

I don't want to be a dusty,
old vessel sitting on a shelf,
next to a dusty, old book
and neither being used.

Tonight we are having a FUNd raiser
for families at our church
who are in different stage of
the adoption process.
We belong to a very small church -
about 100 people
(including kids)
There are now 6 families who are
following God's command
to care for the orphans.
6 (or more) kiddos will have
forever families!
I get chills just typing those words!

If you are local and would like to join us
as we raise FUNd's for these beautiful families,
and you too can learn more about adoption.
Please email me and I will give you the information.

That is so wonderful that you have a great community of people who are also adopting. How can we ever be done? We just got started! Hahaa. Enjoy your night! Wonderful that 6 children will get loving homes and that Jorja will see that in her church community.
