Welcome to our site
For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of Him. 1 Samuel 1:27
Jeremy and I have created this site to journal our blessed journey to bring home baby Eli. We want to include you in this process and allow you to be a part of this wonderful time. The Lord has swung these doors wide open and we are filled with anticipation to see how He is going to provide. We are also going to add a donation button so if you feel led to give to the ministry of bringing home baby Eli you can do so. We love each one of you and hope your are blessed by this awesome gift of God.
Our home study is March 4, 2011 at 9:30am we covet your prayers for the first big step of this process. And please pray for our family as we prepare for the road of paperwork, and inspection ahead. It is so much eaiser to have a baby we have to give everything but our blood to adopt.
If you would like to purchase an adoption tee shirt to support baby Eli you can go to www.adoptionbug.com/babyeli
