We made it!

You guys!!!!

We met and exceeded our $10,000 Kickstarter goal!


I have to admit, there was a point when I thought we shot too high and dreamed far too big… A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped restore my faith in God’s leading!

Not only do we need to recognize our 73 backers, but we also had a few of you send us personal checks in the mail and gifts through paypal. You guys have helped us reach 1/3 of our adoption costs! We could NOT have made it this far without you! You can find your names listed here on our Donor Wall. (This direct link can also be found on the top left hand corner of our blog.) Give me some time to work on all these awesome rewards for yall… I promise they’re coming!

Also, a BIG THANKS to everyone who shared & liked our multiple status updates on Facebook. Because of you guys, we were able to reach an audience that we wouldn’t have otherwise.

Another special set of people we need to recognize are the Marshall’s, Ho’s, Mance’s, Zack Rannick, Jan, Chris, Trent & Sydney Santos,  and the Clark Family. Thank you for taking the time to record our promo videos… we raised over half of our funds because of your fun and direct fundraising messages. Also, huge thanks to those families who were lined up to make MORE videos for us, but ended up not needing to because we met our goal with 6 days to go! Your willingness is humbling.

Thank you to those who continued to give EVEN THOUGH we met our goal.

Thank you to those who have visited & purchased items from my fundraising shop.

Thank you to those who have covered us in prayer not only in these past 30 days, but throughout this entire process. Please keep them up!


While I’m not going to go into too much detail at this point, these last 30 days have been a time of testing in more ways than one. This fundraiser has been an obvious reminder that God is in the center of all things, and it helps our family keep it’s focus in place. So, last but certainly not least, my thanks go to The Lord. For being good. For being faithful. For being kind and understanding. For being sovereign and just. For being the Giver of all things and the Sustainer of what has already been given. Our God is a patient and powerful God. With gladness my heart will continue to wait on Him. Amen.
