Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

The New 147 Millions Orphans "Minus" Campaign

Oh Friends! I am soooo excited about this new shirt. I love, love, love it. On the front it reads, "147 Millions Orphans." On the back it reads "Minus #". You get to choose the number!!!! You can choose any number 1-6.

We have been doing very little fundraising since our miracle donation. If you don't know about that, you can read more here:

Through the MIGHTY hand of God, we have been blessed with enough money to go to China. Our fundraising efforts now are simply to be sure we have enough money to take Josie-Tatum and Ellie with us. We think it is so important for them to be a part of "Gotcha Day," to be reminded of what a special moment that is.

We desperately want to take Ellie back to her foster home. That is where Drew is currently living, and the nannies at Amazing Hands loved her dearly. The government of China is also forcing AH to give up their home...and since it is CHina...they can do that. They are currently looking for a new location. This will likely be Ellie's only opportunity to visit the place where she was cared for until her Forever Family came.

Take a look at these shirts. If you'd like a shirt, you can purchase the red baseball shirt for $35 and the tee-shirt for $20. The red shirt is a women's fitted shirt, so I recommend ordering at least one size larger. The t-shirt fits like most commonly worn t-shirts. If you need it shipped, I will take care of the shipping costs.

You may click the paypal link included here. When ordering, please include in the message to seller box at Pay Pal and/or send me an email stating the size and type of shirt, as well as the number you want placed on the back. If you are ordering in honor of our family, you can put Minus 5 on your shirt. Many of you, though, have beautiful families completed through adoption, so you'll have your own number.

Thank you for your unending support and prayers throughout this past year as we followed God's guiding hand. The enemy fought every step of the way, but our God who loves the orphan more than we do, who loves Drew and Zeke more than I can imagine, has sustained us. He is Jehovah-Jireh.

May He receive all the glory due Him!

You are not required to have a paypal account to pay through this button. It will also accept credit and debit cards.

We also still have Ugandan beads to sell. You can use the same button to order necklaces. Due to the release of Katie's book, 147 Millions Orphans is currently out of beads, but I have about 20 strands.
