Some Yana Love

I got the BESTEST comment the other day…here…I’ll let you read it yourself:

untitled EEK!

What a sweet surprise to find out who the family is that will be working hard to bring Yana home!

Extra lucky for us because Reagan started a blog for their adoption journey…so we can follow along and eventually see that chubby cheeked little girl come home!  These kids will always hold a piece of my heart.  I love that I can watch the transformation these children go through from orphanage to loving home…and play a part in praying for their new family as they navigate the muddy waters of international adoption.

Also, just a quick update that the final total in Yana’s adoption fund now that the matching grant from Barn Light Electric has gone through is $8,358.50!!!!!  (Yana’s fund started with $2,219 in it before our efforts, so we raised $6,139!!!)


What a sweet gift for the Turley family as they go down this path.  We are all called to care for the widow and the orphan.  That can look different for everyone.  And for this little community of readers, it looks like this.  I can only hope that it is a sweet, sweet sound.

Happy day friends.  You guys rock.

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    Sweet thanks from my heart for all the dollars raised to help Yana come to her forever family. I am Mom to Reagan so prayerfully and hopefully soon…Grammy to Yana! Lots of family waiting to love her as we continue praying, on our knees before the Throne of Heaven for something to change with the ban…
