In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

Coveted Prayers

Our family is in the process of making some major decisions concerning adoption. It has always been our desire to open our home to a child in need, but It 's not a simple process. There are many variables to be considered. We don't want to make our decisions based on emotions. We want the Lord to guide our every step. Please keep us in your prayers. I will keep you informed about our journey.

Oh wow, how awesome! My 7 yr old niece Josey is adopted! Are you going through social services or through Tupelo?

Not sure. We are praying about all of our options. Domestic/International....Infant/Child....white/other...handicapped/not....and on and on. It's crazy. Please pray! I don't really have any specifications in mind except one. I believe the Lord knows the end from the beginning. My only request is that the child we adopt has a heart to serve the Lord.
Blessings :-)
