Lima Bound!

Two weeks from today we'll be boarding a plane headed for Lima, Peru! Yes, everything is now in order for us to travel to finally meet our princess in person and to finalize the adoption and bring her home to her forever family! Over the weekend we were able to buy the needed plane tickets! It was only by God's grace and provison through many family and friends who prayed, donated, shared our blog and social status updates. We're eternally grateful to each of those who have had ANY part in this incredible process along the way.

We have also received a final total of donations from our "36 Hour Drive to Peru"and they totaled an amazing $3,047!!  Praise the Lord!!

We still have appointments to tend to, papers that have to make it from one office to another and these types of things could either be done efficently or...well, not-so-efficiently. Please pray that paperwork will arrive to the right individuals at the right offices at the appointed time so that there won't be any delays that will cause concern as we move farther into the month of Decmeber and get closer to the Christmas holiday. At this point, we're scheduled to return to the US on Christmas Eve, together- as a family-- can't ask for a better gift!

How can you pray for us in the next few weeks?

  • That we can get everything (as it relates to our home/ day to day needs here in US) in order prior to our departure in 2 weeks. 
  • That our boys will travel well, and adjust to a very hectic and busy schedule for a few weeks while there in Peru (we're SO thankful that they're able to go along- we started this process as a family, and will complete it as a family...with an additional member of course). 
  • Once again- for the paperwork and the trail it must take & all the hands that must hold, read, stamp, sign, pass along etc. 

Once again, thank you all for your prayers and assistance along the way- to God be the Glory, great things He has done!

Jonathan, Michelle, Jaiden & Levi


  1. God bless you all, MIchelle! Praying for you sweet friend. Can't wait to meet her! ::)
    Love, Judy

  2. I will be praying for your family. My wow and I also started down the road to adoption. We were about 1 week away from adopting a girl when God chose to use the information we have to the Foster family to help them get an understanding of how they could help her have a better quality of life. With that the behavior issues she had diminished and the Foster parents decided to adopt her. It Both saddened us and made us happy for her. She got the services she needed and didn't have to be torn away from the love and support off the family she knew. God Bless You As you stay this new chapter in your life. Our family will be praying for you.

  3. Today is the BIG day! Praying for all of you. Praying for all the people who will touch the paperwork to complete this process. Praying they will be in good health and they will see God's love in this.
