A Family for David - Prayer Answered!!!!

From Brent

Even while we were in the process of making phone calls and considering adopting David ourselves (more on that in a minute), another family - God's perfect choice - stepped forward and have started the process of adopting David.

THEY NEED SOME HELP raising the unexpected additional funds (this family is already adopting a child from Latvia and are going to adopt David as well).

Would you consider helping us send a gift to this family for the selfless decision to adopt David on such short notice (what an act of faith!!!)?

Click here to send your donation to our Pay It Forward fund* via PayPal...

EVERY SINGLE PENNY PLUS OUR OWN CONTRIBUTION WILL GO STRAIGHT TO THIS FAMILY THIS WEEK.

*Note: We consider this part of the Pay It Forward ministry. If you are unfamiliar with that, read about it here.

In Other News

We were waiting for the right time to announce it appears we've raised enough money to immediately go forward with Abby's Wish (our next orphan adoption). Over the next few weeks, we will be "Ebaying" a lot of stuff from our house and belongings to raise the final few thousand dollars... but we have enough in savings now to commit to a referral, and go full steam ahead with the adoption (that's why we were able to consider adopting David today too).

We don't want to steal the thunder from the wonderful news of David finding a family today.... so we'll leave you with that, and post more details soon as they become available.

Abby is getting her wish....

God is good, and huge, and full of love for his children. I pray that everyone who can will send even a dollar to help this family bring David home.

Brent,

I clicked the "Click here to donate" link, entered my donation amount, clicked to pay with Pay Pal and got a confirmation screen that said your payment has been sent and you are being redirected to Tulsa Design or something like that but then I got a 404 Page Not Found error. Please let me know if you got the donation or not. - Kris Keener
