Help us Fund our Adoption by Joining Blastoff!

We have much praise on our lips to our AWESOME God! He is continuing to pour out funding and resources for our adoption, and we are so thankful! We have now surpassed the amount that was needed for us to send in our paperwork. Also, our dossier was officially shipped to Ethiopia last week so we are officially "waiting" and trusting the Lord to bring a referral for our daughter in His time.

One of the ways we believe the Lord is going to fund our adoption and perhaps more ministry ventures is through an opportunity that has been presented to us by a partnership between an established top 100 company, Prepaid Legal and a brand new company called Blastoff communications. Blastoff is a huge internet marketing company that is going to offer people a free homepage where they can keep their social networking sites like facebook open and customize music, videos, and designs on their homepage. There will also be a link to a "mall" and other needed services such as airline, internet, tv, phone, etc. where people can earn cashback and will be able to see any promotionals that different vendors are offering. There are over 300 big name companies that are already participating such as Walmart, Target, Starbucks, Bestbuy, Travelocity, etc. You will also get a small percentage of whatever anybody you share this with buys up to the tenth degree of separation. This means you can be earning commission off of potentially thousands of people. The vendors have agreed to pay a small percentage of money from each sale to each person who is in that 10 degree line of referral. To get a better idea of what it is you can go to and you can check out my homepage at Prepaid Legal, of which I am now an associate, has the exclusive rights to market this free website for two weeks before it goes public on Oct. 12th. This means that on Sept. 26th at midnight (12am Sept. 27th),
you can access my homepage and sign up to get your own. You can then send invitations to all your friends to join and then they can send it to their friends.

There is absolutely no-risk to this, because it's free, and even minimal amounts from people shopping online can add up. If you are interested or have any questions you can email me at Once this goes public, due to the viral nature of how quickly it can spread there will not be the same opportunity to grow a large network. My heart is that any money that comes from this would be used to see the gospel spread and families provided for.
There are several legitimate news articles regarding this opportunity. I will try to post a link if you are interested.

Remember, if you want to, go to on Sept. 27th, sign up and start spreading the word. I hope it blesses you too!

Our dossier is on it's way!

The Lord Jesus has truly made a way for us to send in all our paperwork today! We received around $3000 unexpectedly from extended family and a loan for the rest. We are so thankful and excited that we can now wait and rest in God's perfect timing to bring us to our daughter, even as we have been "working" unto that end for over four months now. Please pray that our documents make it safely through their last round of certification at the US Embassy and as they travel overseas to Ethiopia and are translated. I'll post when they have officially been shipped overseas.

We received our USCIS Approval today!

We were so surprised and excited when we received our approval notice from the USCIS today. This is what we have been waiting on to be able to send in our dossier! The Lord's timing is so amazing and we are very hopeful that we will be able to send our dossier to our agency by the end of next week---which means we will officially be on the waiting list! We are still needing a large amount of money to be able to send it in but are trusting the our God to provide.
