Drum Role Please !!!!!!!!

We have accepted a referral to the most precious little 3 year old boy from Uganda !!! I can't give you anything more than that right now, but as soon as legally possible I will share with you all about him !!!!

1. Please, Please pass on the news about the POINT OF GRACE concert June 28thth @ Fellowship Bible Church, Brentwood, TN ... SEE POST BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS

2. The new t-shirts will be in next week and they are fabulous and speak even louder to the ORPHAN CRISIS in the world ... I will continue to have the other shirts available also ...

3. I will be getting more Uganda Magazine Bead necklaces in by end of the month, SO PRE-ORDER NOW !!! (the last set was sold in 3 days)

4. HATS, HATS, HATS .... OK, I might of out done myself on this one ... I have ordered the cutest camel color utility hats and stitched the flower on the front corner w/ the back of the cap stitched JAMES 1:27 ...(you can also pre-order these on the fundraising site ... I only ordered 25 to start w/ )

I AM PULLING OUT ALL THE STOPS TO BRING JOSEPH HOME ... God does not have Abigail ready for our family yet, but we will be ready when He does ....

"From everyone who have been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." Luke 12:48b

Are These Kids All Yours? said...

CONGRATS!!!! I love your verse and at the same time it scares me....in a good way of course. Being in the ministry, having 7 beautiful children, and knowing what is expected of me....is scary- just is a swift kick in the right direction. Again- can't wait to hear more about your sweet boy!!!!

Christie said...

Congrats to you! What a beautiful family you are...

One miracle at a time...that's what I tell myself as we journey through adoption.
