Join us on our adoption journey.

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
We are no longer orphans because of what God did for us. With one simple act of obedience our sins were forgiven at the cross. So what are we doing with the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ? Our family has decided to take a step of faith and do what He's called us to do, to take care of widows and orphans. Our journey starts with adoption.

Lemonade Stand out West!

From the heart of a child...

We have such a wonderful church family it's not hard to understand why we endure these terribly cold Wisconsin winters.  I couldn't imagine leaving them.

Anyway I digress, getting to the point.  Two kiddos just back from a western vacation told me of their very own fundraising efforts to help bring our children home from Haiti.  I was informed that whilst in the hot sunny part of the country they made some yummy lemonade in which their parents said "rocks".  Well this got the kiddos to thinking and the gears started turning and they came up with the idea of a Lemonade Stand.  They sold lemonade to whomever they could and raised a whooping $23 to go towards our fund.  That's 92 cups of lemonade at .25c a cup.  (Well not including donations but it's still impressive!).  Pretty darn impressive if you ask me.  The lady of the operation, only 8 years old, was turning flips in the front yard in order to attract customers.  They were doing some serious business out there.  My heart is full to bursting, I have no words to convey how much their gesture means to me and my family.  And there are two kiddos in Haiti who will not have to wait due to finances.  We sure do serve a MIGHTY GOD!!!  May all the glory and honour be given to HIM.
