Money, and other things

As you may have noticed, we have not done any fundraising.
This is because, by the grace of God, we are fully funded. We realize that this is a really unique situation, and that many families are not able to adopt as "comfortably" as we are.

We are not against fund raising! We think it is an awesome way for God's people to team up to do His will. We would have pursued Garnet whether or not we could see our financial path so clearly because that's what God told us to do, and we knew He would provide.

Having said all that, we still need your help! We covet your prayers. We would love advice from adoptive families. Money is pretty much the only thing that we don't need. Sometimes (at least for me), money is the easiest way to help someone. It's a lot easier to donate $5 than to diligently pray for someone, or encourage them in a tough time.

So, we need the hard stuff. Thanks to everyone who has committed to praying for Garnet and for us as we work to bring her home. Thanks to everyone who has taken time out of their busy (adoption) schedules to offer advice and words of encouragement.


  1. What a blessing that you don't have to fundraise during your process! God is very good at providing isn't He? I will be praying for you guys and for Garnet. The Lord has her in His hand.

  2. I want you to know you have all been in my thoughts and I will be praying for you. I have been so impressed by you, Mama V, and have thought of you often in the past weeks. I am so proud to know you and support you from afar. I tell many people about your story and how saintlike I think you all are for going into this long process to provide a beautiful home for Garnet. Doug and I are hoping to move back to... am I allowed to say where you live? for his residency, summer 2014. I hope we'll be able to see you again and play music together! I just want to emphasize again how much you impress me. I pray that all will go smoothly. - Jess
