Thank you to The Chosen and Dearly Loved Foundation and Lifesong for Orphans for making this possible!

Why not one more?

When we were in Zhengzhou China just last year picking up our sweet Frannie Qiu Qiu our hearts knew we would probably be back for one more sweet one.

Once you know the need and you have the resources it becomes less about you and more about them.

We assumed God would give us a bit of time and call us again in 2020 or later.

So when we started feeling God tug on our hearts with a sweet little blind girl in Beijing at just 6 months home we knew He was calling us back a little earlier than anticipated.

We feel blessed to be called! 

A little about our family:

Ani came home at age 6 from Bulgaria, she is fully blind and our resident stinker. Mabel blessed us with her spunky spirit from Nanchang China in 2016 and our sweet Frances came from Zhengzhou China in 2018. Mabel and Frances are also blind.

We have also been blessed with four biological children Lucas/24, Gaelan/20, Jericho/12 and Olive Ann/7.

There is a lot of love in our family!

We need your help!

We are approved!

July 9, 2019

Wow!  In the last few weeks we’ve been granted pre approval for our girl and our I800a (immigration approval) has been approved and delivered to our courier!

He will get the document signed and sealed and then all our documents (our dossier) will go off to China – which is DTC!

Then we wait about 30-45 days and China says YES and we are approved!  

A few more steps and we’ll be on our way.

Thank you for loving our girl!

The donations from our Connected Hearts funding page has been sent to this page and then we are about $1200 away from having our matching grant met!

Matching grant total!

June 26, 2019

Friends!

We’ve raised about $2700 on another funding page that will be donated to this page.

That makes our grand total $3200.

We still have about $1200 to raise to have all the money to fulfill the grant and pay the fees.

Then it will be matched by Chosen and Dearly Loved ❤️❤️ and we will have $8000 for our last and final agency fee!

Thank you for loving us! Thank you for loving our girl!

I 800a and a little dossier

May 30, 2019

All our documents and notarized and authenticated and now we are waiting on the last piece from USCIS. That piece will need authentication and then all our documents (our dossier) will head over to China to be translated, reviewed and approved.

Our little girl is waiting in Beijing for us. She is 5 and fully blind. We will meet her in Beijing and then travel to Nanjing for her paperwork.

We hope to travel in November. Thank you for loving us!
