News and A Call to Prayer


Jason and I have felt such love and support over the last three months as we have begun this adoption journey, it has been amazing. Time and time again, we have seen God meet our needs and grow our faith in ways that we have never experienced before. The garage sale we had covered the cost of the honestudy just about dollar for dollar, who can say that was anything but the hand of God?

So....it is with heavy hearts that we have news to share. Due to the depreciated home value and our outstanding school loans, our debt income ratio is out of balance. We have been informed by the adoption agency that there is no way that a Russian court would approve us to adopt at this time.

We have been formally REJECTED. Kind words, calls and emails to explain, but that does not change where we stand........

Why did God bring us this far just to close the door? What is going to happen to precious little Sutton? I do not know the answer to these questions, but I know the one who does.

Friends, please pray that God gives us clarity in what to do next. We know that he is calling us to be a voice for the orphan.....

With that, we are making sure that every donation that has been given to us on Sutton's behalf will be going into his Reece's Rainbow fund. This fund will stay with him, even when our connection to him has been removed.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to reach out to us. Thank you all so much.
