We Have Our TA!!!!

We just found out today that we have our TA! I am very excited and also very nervous at the same time. We are still in need for our travel funds and praying for God to provide a miracle for us. We filed our income taxes and recieved less than we were anticipating. We donot want to delay our travel to bring Jailynn home but at this point we do not have all the funds we need.I am asking for prayers and any help possible.Please pray for all this to come together and that we will have the funds needed to bring Jailynn home without any lengthy delays. She has already waited for so long. We are humbled by the support we have recieved so far and appreciate every prayer and dollar given. Nothing is too small. Nothing is impossible for God. I am staying positive and believing God for a miracle. I created a new Chipin because the other one does not seem to be working properly. Maybe this one will keep up with any contributions. Thank you for all the support and love towards Jailynn.

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!

God Is Awesome!



I am Praising God tonight because He has Heard my cries and answered my prayers. We have recieved a generation donation from a wonderful family toward our fund raising efforts. We have also recieved generous donations from wonderful people through this website and through Jailynn's Prayer. So far, the total fundraising has reached a total of $4000!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you to everyone for helping us to bring Jailynn home! We are hoping to travel sometime this month and still need to raise money. I know that God is providing for our family through the unselfish and generous giving from special and wonderful people like you!

We have our LOA!!
