First day of school

Today was the first day of school for the boys. They were so excited. They all came home happy and well. I love school.
We didn't get that house after all. It turns out it was a short sale. Oh well. There is another house I like better anyway that we put an offer on today. Wish us luck with that one.
We got a referral for two more girls in Ghana. They are cousins. They live in the Kwahu Mountain region of Ghana. One is six or seven and has no parents. They died when she was very young. Her name is Josephine. The other is about 2. Her mother is very young and was in school when she got pregnant. She wants to go back to school so she can't care for her daughter and go to school. Her daughter's name is Nadia. Hopefully it works out with them. Pray lots for us. I'll post pictures in the side collum.

A home of our own again!

They accepted our offer without countering. We are so excited. We will be moving in a month. I can't wait. To be in a home I own again will be so great! I love to paint and change things. It is so hard to just look at my red kitchen every day and not be able to paint it!!! I hate the red!!!! I don't know what I will need to do, probably nothing but at least I have the option if I want. Yeah! something finally to be excited about after a lot of disapointment. Also we will have the lowest mortgage we have ever had excluding our first house so that is way great and this house is in a great place. The kids will be able to walk to school and we will be able to walk to church. I've never lived so close to everything before. I hope it will be great. Did I mention I'm excited? 934054 is the mls # so if you want to see it look it up on

Super sad news

I don't even know what to say. We have lost the girls. The cheif of the village decided that he wasn't going to allow any adoptions from his village all of a sudden. We don't know why. His decision halted seven children from being adopted. We are heartbroken. Sorry it has been so long since my last post but getting back in the swing of things was taking awhile and then we got hit with this news so I wasn't ready to face it just yet. I know all things happen for a reason and I am sure there are other children for us I just need to process it because I felt like these were my daughters. I still want to help their village but don't know how. Anyway pray for them.

We are probably moving. We got permission from our landlord to go ahead and find a place. We are trying to keep it cheap this time so we can be free to do fun things in the future. We found a house we like that we are going to put an offer on. Wish us luck because we have put offers on two houses already and have been out offered if that is even a term. We just decided to look at houses that are actually in our price range instead of a little over.

Well I hope things are well with all of you. Good luck with whatever adventure you are in the middle of.
