About Us

We are Stuart and Jessie - a couple imperfectly pursuing God's will for our family, which so far has included having and loving 3 children, getting debt free, and now pursuing an international adoption.

Hanging out with snails...

...or at least that's what it feels like.  We've been working - just ever so slowly - collecting necessary paperwork, downloading parenting classes, making phone calls, etc.

But we've also been doing a lot of praying.  And intentional waiting.  This is probably the biggest reason for a lack of updates - so if you think of us and wonder how we're doing, would you mind saying a prayer on our behalf?

In the meantime, we've also added a couple hundred dollars to our adoption fund, part of it coming from good friends and family.  It's always humbling to be on the receiving end of a gift, but we are very thankful.

Guess that's about it for now.

A gift.

The Bible makes it abundantly clear that God loves children.  It also says He loves those who cheerfully give.

I can only imagine His thoughts on this gift from a 7 year old girl:

Thank you Ella.
