Mmmmm the sweet beginnings of fall

Well, it's that time of the year again....

PUMPKIN ROLLS

For the past two years, my family and I have sold pumpkin rolls in order to raise support for Eli and I in some way--mainly adoption costs and transitional costs back to the U.S..  As we continue to sell pumpkin rolls in the years to come, each batch of monetary support will go to a purpose for the Kingdom.  This year, we are selling pumpkin rolls for three reasons!


  1. Pumpkin rolls are delicious and perfect for the fall holidays!
  2. To help with general overwhelming costs this past year--doctor's appointments that were unexpectedly high, costs related to vehicles, etc.
  3. To tuck away until a trip to Zambia becomes a possibility.  That could be as early as August next year, or the August after that, but we are trusting the Lord to provide for us. I don't know exactly what that trip will look like, seeing that we won't be heading back until we have funds available, but I know a very strong desire of my heart is for Eli and I to serve his birth country of Zambia, especially the remainder of Eli's biological family, together.

If you'd like a pumpkin roll for your holiday, please go to this link http://goo.gl/0q3szz and submit an order form! If you want to donate but you do not want a pumpkin roll, that's fine too! :) Just fill out the form and type "zero" in the quantity.

How blessed we are to have such support in this place.  Beyond thankful for each of you who have prayed for and loved on us. :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Behold, I will send you Elijah...

I have an amazing story to tell you about a little boy. He turned 4 years old this week. He is a sweet, smart, and precious boy who is already displaying the Lord's glory.
When he was about a year and 6 months old, he was admitted into the hospital because of malnutrition and abandonment.  An orphanage stepped in to care for him when no one else could. Overtime, all his friends and the housemothers knew him as a joyful boy—even though his circumstances did not seem joyful.Although he lived in an orphanage and was taken care of, he didn't have the one-on-one parenting, love, and support he should have had by his birth parents.He stayed in the orphanage for almost 2 years. During this time, not one family member visited him.
I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet boy when I visited an orphanage one weekend in January. He was the happiest one of them all.He ran and played with a huge smile on his face.His personality and demeanor was intriguing. Even his house moms testified to h…

Two years...

Today is a pretty awesome day!   Two years ago, on August 7th, 2012, Elijah David came home for the first time!  And boy what a mess I was! :)

Last year on Eli's Gotcha Day, I wrote an entry with 12 awesome pictures of Eli displaying his transformation from Day 1 to Day 365!  So this year I'll do the same.  However, before I let you see the pictures, let me just tell you about my beautiful, precious son. He melts my heart.


Elijah is Energetic.  Never does he skip a beat. Whether he's been swimming all day, playing at the park, or running errands with me, he always seems to have energy!  He's especially energetic when he is able to have sugar. One time we were celebrating a birthday party and he had ice cream at 8 pm. Ohhh man, he was running in circles around the kitchen screaming and laughing. Boy oh boy.

Elijah is Light.  Not only is he light hearted in his demeanor, but he's a bright bright light to others.  So many people stop and just look at him.  He catches …
