we have some big news to share with you. 

news that i have been waiting to tell you about for quite some time now.
you may want to sit down for this one.

our family is growing.

the little boy in this picture may have been born in a different country but he has found a home in our hearts.
we hope you will follow along as we embark on the journey to bring him home.
click HERE to see our official announcement!

over the next few weeks we will be making plans for a BIG awesome fundraising event to help us.
some ideas we are bouncing around are:
*an ipad 2 giveaway,
*a BIG anthropologie gift card giveaway,
*maybe a fancy dancy camera giveaway,
or something entirely different altogether.

we are still unsure what to do or how to do it, but it will come.  
we would LOVE some suggestions!

for now, the paperwork continues! :)

When I first discovered Reece's Rainbows - we fell in love with more than one little person! But the staggering costs of it defeated us....so we have taken to praying for them....and will wait to see what God has in store for us. I am so happy for you and for Davis that he has found his forever family! I am so happy for all of you! I bet your kids are excited!
