Thank You

I want to take a moment today and just say “Thank You” to those who have helped our family in so many different ways. We have so much to be thankful for!

Thank you to all of you who lift us up in prayer. We cannot begin to express how much this means to us and how much it has helped us through this process. I know of several prayer warriors out there supporting us and I can feel your prayers!

Thank you to those of you who have made financial contributions thus far. There is no denying that the cost of adopting one child from Haiti is enough to keep many people from doing so. And God has led us to adopt two. We need your help and we pray daily that God will continue to provide and we trust that He will.

Thank you to all of those that have given clothes and other items, and made things, for our girls. Thank you for allowing us to be able to take things to the girls on each of our trips to Haiti without having to go out and purchase things for them. This has been an area of over flowing support. Thank you!

Thank you to everyone that is helping take care of our girls in Haiti. Thank you Magdala, and the others helping take care of Jesula in the orphanage in Camatin. Thank you Mona, Jovanie, and the others taking care of Redjina in Tabarre. We are so very thankful that God has provided all of you to care for our girls. Thank you!

Thank you Ricot for all of the work you do in Haiti. Thank you for continuing the good work your father started with the Poor Children's Assistance Project. Thank you for what you do for us and our girls, and for what you do for all of the people that God uses you too touch!

Thank you to Kevin Rudd and Kurt Rudd. I don’t know that we could make it through this process without you. Thank you for the adoption process guidance and for the spiritual support. It has been a blessing knowing that I can pick up the phone at any time and call you about the adoption. Your words of support and encouragement have made this emotional roller coaster bearable. Thank you!

Thank you to all of you who take the time to read our blog. We cherish your comments. Just knowing so many people are following along with us through the blog provides us with comfort.

Thank you to those who take time out of your busy life to check on us. Foreign adoption is emotionally very, very hard. Think about having two of your children living far away in a place like Haiti. This can be a lonely process. I can't even start to convey what your blog comment, email, short phone call or text message means to us. Thank you!

This blog post only scratches the surface of people for which we are thankful. The problem with saying 'thank you' publicly is the fear of someone feeling left out. I have intentionally only mentioned a few names. Some people prefer not to be named. And honestly there are too many names to risk trying to list them all.

Please know that every single act of support we receive, no matter how big or how small, is noticed and is greatly appreciated. Each act of support we receive is a blessing and an answered prayer from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

May the LORD now show you kindness and faithfulness, and I too will show you the same favor because you have done this. 2 Samuel 2:6
