About Us

My name is Jessica and my dear sweet hubby is Kelly. We have three beautiful girls, big sis and little sis plus our newest little baby sis :) Welcome to our site where we will blog about our journey to grow our family through adoption in Africa.

We are approved!

Ha!  Who knew?!  Just kidding... I wasn't worried about any problems with our FBI fingerprints, but we are glad that part is behind us.  As I mentioned before, the actual process was quite painless, the price ($) not so painless...  I just have to remind myself it's all part of the ransom for my child, a child I have never laid eyes on, but one that I pray for and think of.  The one I plan for (yes, the hubby wanted to know what I had bought so many Christmas place mats...you know...for the future!), and the one I long for.

I wonder, will his face be long and slender, or chubby and round?  Will his skin be dark chocolate or a light coffee color?  I wish he was with us as we celebrate family this week, even with all the sickness and go, go, go of the holiday, I wish he was with us.  I wish the matching cribs were set up in the baby room.

But, he's not.  It makes me sad, but I am clinging to the truth that God has a better handle on the details, the timing, and all the things in-between than I do.

So, we have a 1-171H

Now we just need all the money that goes with the dossier.....

I am claiming this and praying it over our adoption.

Jer. 29:11 
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
