Guardian Angels

So as you know from my last blog post, we are taking a leap of faith and going where God has called us to go. To an Eastern European country to adopt a sweet little boy with special needs. You will all learn more about our little love and his needs as we are able to share. But for now, the fund raising must begin! We have to send the adoption agency a commitment fee of $3500 very soon. And soon after that will come home study fees of about $2000. Many more fees after that but, I'm trying to just focus on what's right in front of me. One step at a time. I want to keep track of all of your generous donations from the very beginning, so I'm doing something visible and tangible to remind our family of God's provision and of all of the good people out there that are working with us to bring our son HOME! We are creating a Guardian Angel wall. Everyone who donates $5-10 dollars to help rescue our son will get one of these hearts on our Guardian Angel wall with your name on it.
If you give $11-25 dollars, we will put your name on a beautiful set of angel wings like these.
Donations of $26-50 get your name on this sweet praying angel:

And any donation of $51 or more will earn a special spot on our Guardian Angel wall with this beautiful angel:
Each of these pictures will be lovingly colored by either my 6 year old daughter Cana or my 4 year old son Loyal. Most of them will probably be done by Cana, simply because she really enjoys coloring, while Loyal has to be in the right mood for it. :) Cana is soooo excited to participate in bringing her little brother home and wants to start filling up our Guardian Angel wall! Will you help her get started? If you would like to donate in honor of someone else, please let me know, and I will add that to the picture. If you have any special message you would like to add, I'd be glad to do so. I want to keep these forever to look back on!


  1. Great idea! I love to think of these things as something you can show your son to show him that even while he was in the orphanage, he was not unloved or abandoned, but that all these people wanted him to come home to his family - yours!
