Sacrifice

So now you know the big news of adoption, ready for some more?

Well, in order to save enough money as fast as possible to bring our Haitian kids home, we have decided to sell our house here in Texas and move back in with my in-laws in Louisiana…..I’m sorry….I need a moment…. Ok, in fairness it is a nice two bedroom one bath guest home BEHIND my in-laws. But, none the less, I should probably go see a doctor and have my head examined.

Problem is, it isn’t a head issue, it is a heart issue. And my heart is telling me to sacrifice it all, what the world calls riches, and do everything in my power to bring my Haitian kids home as soon as possible. For some people raising money is the only option and for those I feel our calling is to help. But for us, if we are just willing to check our pride at the doorstep of our new two bedroom house, we will be able to save enough money to pay for our kids in about a year.

Once the adoptions are paid for and we are debt free, we will then start the process of finding a new home, with more than two bedrooms, to really become HOME, as our family goes from “four 2 six”.

By the way…..our current plan is for that HOME to be back in TEXAS!!!!!! Everyone together now…..”The Stars at night, are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas….” We will miss you!

    What a terrible and wonderful step! We will definitely be praying for you; we are just SO excited about your commitment to our Lord, your hearts for Him, your new kids – this will all be so wonderful (even if it doesn’t seem wonderful at times…)! Please keep telling us how we can pray for you, and we will continue to support you, even from afar! But we’ll miss you a lot in Diakonos! Big time! We’re gonna be praying you back!
    Love, Roel and Robyn

    Wow! I am so excited for y’all! We will be glad to have you back in LA, even if it is only for a little while. Now, if you can only convince the others (Moreland’s, Moore’s, and Miletello’s) to come back home too! We can’t wait to see you all. What a blessing it will be for your precious new children to have such a great mom and dad (plus sisters)!
