Our Big Surprise

(taken from our Facebook pages this morning)

BIG NEWS!!!!      We are adopting…
At the beginning of this year our thoughts were about getting our youngest daughter married and then transitioning to the next phase of life…saving hard for retirement!  But through a series of events we felt God was leading us to adopt a little boy from Haiti. So we started the process in April and we now know who our son will be!   International adoption is quite expensive and so we are trying to raise additional funds this week to help cover some of the traveling expenses as we hope to travel to Haiti 5 or 6 times over the next 18 months to visit Bo before bringing him home. Our first visit will be at the end of this month. Our adoption story is being featured this week at Give1Save1.  I hope you will take a minute to check it out and if you would like to be a part of our story we would be so grateful. The concept of Give1Save1 is if everyone gave just one dollar it would make a big difference to help adopting families with their expenses. You can give whatever amount you would like. They feature a new family each week. We hope you will help us get the word out and share our story on your Facebook page as well. We will post updates during the week. Thanks for your consideration and help.
