Love is

I didn't give you the gift of life, But in my heart I know. The love I feel is deep and real, As if it had been so.

For us to have each other Is like a dream come true! No, I didn't give you The gift of life, Life gave me the gift of you. --- Unknown

Funded but not funded :)

We have been blessed with a way to pay the remaining money owed while in China.  I am humbled and feeling oh so many emotions.  Our work is not done though. This money has to be repaid and we want to continue to fundraiser while we are in China and get this money back.  It was a sacrifice and I need your help to make sure it is returned as quickly as possible.

I don't know why God chose this way to fund our adoption but I am so glad we have every dollar we need. I am forever grateful to each and every one of you that has supported us and arried us through on your prayers.  Thank you for giving of your time, your energy, your hearts and your finances to bring our children home.   Please follow along and watch as this miracle unfolds.  Share in the joy that each of you had a part in, and look at the new family photos and know you helped create them.  God is the reason but each of us got to be a part of this story. You are all a part of outright children's legacy, and because you have, they will know the love of a family but more importantly they will know the love of their Heavenly Father.

Thank you...

David and Kathy Ferguson

Not there yet.

We are not there yet.  We still need $7093 and we have to have it before the banks close today.  It cannot come via PayPal because due to there rules they cannot release the funds immediately. So there is no time since we have to have to money before we leave the US.

Pray... I am exhausted this morning and the enemy is trying to destroy my faith and hope.

But I say it again
Though I cannot see how I choose to trust Him, I choose to ignore the "feelings" screaming at me.  God I choose you...

Donations recieved

Thanks to some precious generous people (and subtracting a post placement fee we will have time to get in the weeks when we get home) we now need 9393 dollars! I believe God is going to do this.  I refuse to think anything else,  He began this journey and He is faithful.  This isn't about me, it is all about Him.  His story is being written and I am just blessed to be one of many people in it. 

Thank you God for your faithfulness....

I will keep updating through the day as the numbers change!

Love you all

Here is where we stand.

We are 3 days away from leaving to go to get our babies.  We are locked in and cannot change or postpone dates.  We still need roughly 11 thousand dollars. We must will be traveling early Thursday and will have to have the total amount during business hours on Wednesday.  Humans eyes see time and lack.  But I have decided, rather stubbornly chosen to trust my Father,  the one who set us on this journey, the one who loves each and every orphan more than we can imagine.  The one who loves us more than we know.  I refused to give into the fear screaming in my face, I choose instead to rest in my Fathers arms and look into His eyes and let Him carry the load, because for me it would be more than I can bear, but for Him, (insert huge grin) it is easy. 

God has raised almost 40 thousand dollars already and He will complete this. 


Pray as if you were standing in our shoes

If you know someone who can help, please ask them

If you feel God asking you to help, please please yield to Him.

Thank you for every thing each of you have done,  you have prayed with us and for us.  You have supported us with word and finances, you have carried us when we couldn't walk our self... You have truly been Gods hands and feet.  He is bringing them home and each of you have shared in that.  We are truly blessed!

Thank you Father that you will complete what you have started.

Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this, He who has begun a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

For my babies waiting  Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Love, Me

Freaking out here!!!! I knew this would be fast but I am now in freaking out mode!  I will hold my son in 12 days... and my daughter in 15.  Our world is about to change!!!!!!!!


I have soooo many things to get done and so many thing now that will be getting booted from the "to do" list that will not be getting done.  My mind is racing through lists at lighting speed, and details are changing every few minutes.  But I am soooooo excited and soooooooooooooo terrified! Not about getting them, but about getting things done and then coming home and adjusting to the new normal.  :)

*****Urgent prayers needed for the remaining funds to come in.  We have a benefit concert Sunday night in Tyler thrown for us by members of one of the local cowboy church's.  We are praying for being fully funded before the beginning of the week. *****

Also pray for our health and travels, for our kids here in the states to be healthy and safe, and for the little ones to not be scared or confused (and for mommies heart to be at peace having to leave them).  Pray for Elijah and Eva's transition and for safe peaceful travels in country.  Also for all our paperwork in China to go smoothly. 

I am so blessed to have each of you in our lives...
oh and If you want to be a part of the airport welcoming party let us know. :)

Here we come babies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
