Thank you!

In just a few hours I will leave for the airport to bring Benjamin and Thomas home. Before I do, I want to take a moment to thank all of those who have offered their love, encouragement, support, prayers and donations throughout this journey. We could not do this without you!

Last week I began an "emergency" fundraiser to raise the funds necessary to cover the cost of food and lodging while in Bulgaria. I was humbled as I watched friends, family and strangers come together to help us raise those funds in LESS THAN 48 HOURS! The Lord ALWAYS provides and He usually does it through the kindness, generosity and love of others. Thank you to each and every one of you who acted as instruments in the Lord's hands in helping us to reach our goal by donating, sharing and praying!

Before I go, I would like to announce the winners of our "Stitched Together by Love" giveaway.  They are:

Woo-hoo! Such miracles are a joy to behold! I'm SO HAPPY for you to be bringing these boys home! :D

I'm SOOOO glad that God has blessed you to bring these little boys home, it is His will that they receive the love and care I know you will give them!

Thank you for the gift, is there perhaps a way to donate it to the orphanage there or another child? Or perhaps another family in need. If so that would be my wish, please pass along the blessing for us. Have a most wonderful trip and our prayers will be going up for a peaceful transition for your family and your new little one!!
