Here HE goes again...


A few months ago,
Bryan and I swore  strongly agreed that we were done!
We have been blessed immeasurably 
with our beautiful family...
but...
WE were done. 
Thank you God but
seriously -
WE'RE DONE!

Warning -
never say that to God!

Cause HE may take you on ride
that you never thought possible! 

He melted our hearts! 

Brought us to our knees!

And God moved stubborn mountains to tell us 
that we are his mommy and daddy!


So now we begin our journey to China and to our sweet son Gus!


We are praying for 3000 people who will be willing to help us bring
Gus home,
by donating $10 each. 


 To insure a more personal contact with our friends - we will be using the "old school" way and  will be accepting donations through snail mail and face-to-face!  If you would like to make a donation to help bring Gus home, please leave a comment with your email or email me at soccermom@tx.rr.com.  Thank you for blessing us with your friendship!

YEAH!!!! I finally found your blog! (It wouldn't take me to it from your comment the other day.) I cannot even begin to tell you what an honor it was to advocate for your little Gus. And the fact that God answered my prayer for him to find a forever family almost immediately was absolutely amazing! It truly brought me to tears! I cannot wait to watch your journey to bring this little bit home to such a loving (and beautiful) family!!! xoxo Brooke
