Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

I have to share with you all this amazing family.  I met them while we were in China adopting Finn and they were adopting their beautiful daughter Maylie.  

We have stayed in contact ever since. Meeting them and their daughters made a big impact on Marc and I.  One thing I know for sure is that they are amazing parents of 4 beautiful, sweet, poised daughters who all have a huge heart for Jesus.    Now they are thrilled to be adopting their 5th daughter in the coming months!!

This precious child has been through WAY too much for any 4 year old to bear, more than even the typical orphan which is overwhelming enough. Her story has touched me deeply but I will keep it to myself as the details are not mine to share.  I am so humbled that my wonderful friends have stepped up to become her family.    They have stepped out in faith financially in a big way as well, and they are holding a raffle for an Ipad and some other fabulous gifts.  Would you please consider helping them bring Lily home and getting a chance to win the Ipad!    You can check out all the info on their website by clicking here    

And please know that I 100% can attest that they are a wonderful family that truly does need us to rally around them to help bring this precious child home! Please check out their blog, donate and help us spread the word!  Thank you sooo much!

So Amy, I hope you see this -- but I just read your comment on Nancy's (of the Crazy Eights) blog, and just had to write to ask you not to stop yours! I have loved reading it the past few weeks since I first found it. I'm from NC (just moved a couple of years ago), and you've made me feel a little closer to home, and my husband and I have watched your gotcha day videos and loved every second! We're waiting for LOA for our 19 month old little girl, and I'm soaking up every bit of insight, advice and wisdom I can. I can't even imagine how busy you are, but if you have any time to continue to share your experiences, there are a whole lot of us who would benefit, and be very grateful.
