Meet Kendra & Nico: Families wanted!

This is Kendra. The only information that I know about her                           is that she was born in February 2011 & she has Down syndrome.

This is Nico. The only information I have on Nico is that he was born in May 2010 with Down syndrome and has a calm character. There are several more pictures available of Nico! I don't know who couldn't fall in love with his big blue eyes and red hair. 

Kendra & Nico are from the same orphanage in Russia. Their region is more expensive to adopt from, as it now requires 4 trips. Older parents and single moms are able to adopt in their region. 

Jayson & I are prayer warriors for Kendra & Nico. We are committed to praying for them until they find a family and are home with them. We are also advocating for them, trying to find their families quickly! 

If you are interested in learning more about Kendra or Nico, or any of the other children on Reece's Rainbow, please visit their website @    There you can read more about their organization and what you need to do if you are interested in any of the children. 

I pray that everyone who reads this may have their hearts stirred to learn more and pray about what God would have them do to help these children. Some are called to adopt. Some are called to give. Some are called to pray. But we're all called to do something. 

We would like to do a fundraiser in the future, so if you have anything you would like to donate, please let me know! It could be anything. It can be something you have made if you are crafty or any sort of item or a gift card, etc. 

If you are reading this, thank you so much. If you have any questions or thoughts, please share them with me!

Waiting on God

I admit, I have quickly realized that blogging is not my thing. I've been busy being a wife and mommy and have little spare time, so when I do, blogging isn't exactly the first thing on my list of things to do. I'd usually rather read a book, watch a movie, or just go to bed early! 

But, I have decided that I am going to use my blog more just to advocate for Reece's Rainbow and all the beautiful children waiting for a family! I am constantly looking at Reece's Rainbow's website and praying for the children. Praying for these lost children to be found. Praying for hearts to be opened to them. Praying for a financial miracle in our own family so one day we can adopt. Praying, praying, praying.... 

Lately, I find myself praying often just for God to show me how I can help. We don't have as much money as I'd like to be able to give. I'm not very outgoing and able to ask people for money very well. I'm not crafty and able to create awesome items for a give-away fundraiser. I don't have a big audience to reach and tell about these children.And the list goes on. 
But that doesn't mean I can't start. I can still do something, no matter how little it seems.I can have a willing heart, which is all God needs. So for now, until I get more direction from God, I am just going to start blogging for these children and sharing my blog. Hopefully at some point I will be able to get some fundraisers going. Hopefully with my blog, and so many others, these children will start getting noticed and hearts will be stirred. 

I am so excited to see God move mountains for these children. 

Please join me in praying and advocating for the least of these.
