Praising God!!

We are officailly purchasing our airfare today! God has been so good to us and we have the money for our airfare. We have recieved a covenant loan for a total of 6000 which is covering our travel fees and airfare. We are still praying for the rest of the money we need which is about 7000 for the orphanage donation fee and legal fees. I know that it is sooooo much money to be in need of at this time. The reason that we need so much money is because the travel fees with our agency is at least 2 times more expensive than when we adopted Jordyn. We are also saving money and I am working extra shifts at the hospital and I am sending out letters to all our family and friends. I know that God has opened the doors for us to bring home Jailynn and I know that He is faithful and will provide for our family. Please keep us in your prayers! We will travel on April 29th to Los Angelas and then to Bejing! Here is our Itenerary:

OH Melanie, God is indeed good and he will find the money for you. Keep the faith girl!
I am always thinking about you and
I also want you to know that your little one in China is in my prayers too that she adjusts well....
How can she not with such a great family! But just that God prepares her little heart for so much change.

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!
