Good News!

Oh again I say, so much to blog about and so little time!  Time truly is the enemy sometimes and it has really gotten away from me lately.  I might have to put a few new posts on here in the next couple of days just to catch up!

For right now though I wanted to share some great news.  You know the Premier Jewelry Show I recently posted about?  Well it was a great success!!  With the help of Amy-- our wonderful friend and Premier saleslady, and some great friends coming to the show and supporting our cause, we were able to raise $300 to go towards our adoption!!  AND I was able to get over $400 in free jewelry to raffle off here on my blog!!  So please stay tuned.  As soon as I figure out how to coordinate that I will be posting pictures of the beautiful jewelry and you can donate to our Paypal account to buy a ticket (or tickets... Hint Hint) to enter yourself into the drawing to win a necklace, or earrings, or watch..... the list goes on!

So a big THANK YOU goes out to Amy for her generous Christian spirit in donating all her profits from our show to our adoption fund!  If there were more people out there with such a giving heart, there would be many less orphans in the world.  And a huge thank you as well to all the ladies that attended my show.  We appreciate it greatly.  Through your purchases you have helped to make a difference in the life of a child and we are tremendously grateful for your support.

This money, in addition to three private contributions to our fund, brings us up to $600 set aside in just the past couple weeks.  We are getting there slowly but surely!  And once our raffle gets going I hope to be able to say that that number will continue to grow.

In the meantime, please continue to pray for sweet Zhou Lie, the 13 year old boy we first committed to and then were not able to continue on towards adopting.  He still needs a home and his time is running short.  He will age out at the ripe old age of 14 on his birthday in January.  He deserves a home, a family, someone to call Mom and Dad.  We still wish we were able to give that to him, but because of circumstances beyond our control, we need to wait a while longer to complete our homestudy and by then it will be too late for us to go and get him.

Please, if you are a homestudy ready family, would you consider Zhou Lie?  You can find out more about him from Lynne at the WACAP agency.  Her email is  He has a lot of grant money going towards his adoption and only has minor special needs.  Please prayerfully consider if he might be your son.  If we cannot be his family, we want to still do all that we can to ensure that he gets a family soon.  His time is running out.
