Almost to Jackson

     Today our Article 5 was picked up! Yeah! Our agency told us to expect Travel Notice within a week.  This is very fast.  The next couple of weeks will be very busy. Here's what our next steps look like for this week and next..

Travel Notice

Secure a Consulate Appointment

Book Travel to China

Arrange and Book in- Country Travel

We will be very busy!! 

We'd like to ask for prayer for favor with a grant organization who is considering our family.  We are still very short on the funds needed to travel and this grant would be a huge blessing!! 

We can't believe we are almost ready to bring Jackson home.  We cant wait to hug him and tell him how much we love him!

CRAZIEST Adoption Drawing EVER

Craziest Adoption Drawing EVER

Every kids is begging for one of these... their very own teacup piglet!  Teacup Pigs have gained popularity in recent movies, leaving most kids asking for one.  True Teacups are under 50 pounds full grown, and can range in price from $700- $2,000.  They are hypoallergenic, easily housebroken, walk on leashes and are very smart when it comes to learning tricks.  And best of all they love belly rubs, so much in fact that when you rub their belly, they fall over. :) This drawing is for a two month old teacup named Hamilton.  He loves kids and other pets. His favorite treat is Cheerios. He has been raised in our home, from birth. 

Rules of the Drawing:

$10 donation= 1 entry
$25 donation= 3 entries
$50 donation= 10 entries

Drawing will be held on Feb. 21st and winner will be announced that day via our blog.

To enter click on the link on the right hand side of the blog or visit our family page below...
for a tax deductible donation.

Hamilton can be picked up at our home ( Missouri) or the new owner will be responsible for shipping. 
Any money raised beyond our goal will be applied to shipping, so keep an eye on the blog- shipping may be free! 

Pigs can be easily flown to your nearest airport.

Teacups are very lovable!

All money raised through donations in this drawing will go towards Jackson's adoption costs.  

Want to learn more about Teacups please visit our Facebook Page Sister Pigs.

Fun Piggy Fact: Piggies LOVE their blankets, even carrying them around the house with them. 

This is Thumbelina who takes her blanket and stands by the woodstove. ( we dont think she knows her rear end sticks out!) 

Hamilton thinks the cat is his best friend.

 Hamilton currently weighs 8 pounds.

Tonight our seven year old volunteered to say the family prayer.  He prayed," Dear God, I pray for Jackson, and his paperwork to go really fast so he can come home soon. I love you, Amen" Jackson doesnt know someone is praying for him. 
Jackson doesnt even know he's being adopted.
He doesnt know his knew brother has designed their room, planned the games they can play, and counts down the days until he arrives. 
He doesn't know that tomorrow, on his birthday on the other side of the world, someone is celebrating him.  I can't wait for the day that he knows that he was loved before he ever got here! 

  This week our dossier went to China, and if you've ever adopted before you know what an accomplishment that is! Please join us in prayer for the remaining steps to go smoothly and for the financial provision of the up- coming steps.  

Januarys Needs:  $900 in legal/ agency fees

Jackson Adoption Update November

   Exciting news today, as our I- 800 A approval came! This means that our paperwork can go to the Consulate now, and then onto China next month! We are so thankful for all the details God has worked out for this, including the fees we needed for our November steps. 

Prayer Requests:  
     We would love it if you will continue to pray with us for God to prepare Jackson's heart for the changes he will be making as he joins our family next year.  Also, we are praying for a quick and smooth paperwork process as our paperwork heads to China next month.
